That could be your problem to.
Overclocking is NOT a good thing to do to a phone. We can't WATER COOL them, or put over-sized heatsinks with fans on them to cool the CPU back down.
Overclocking means more heat, more heat, CPU will SLOW DOWN to try to COOL DOWN and save it's life.
Like I said, games like that are CPU and Memory intensive. You've overclocked the CPU and then push it harder. Like the engine in a car, you can only put so much NOS through there before you blow something.
Sure, the CPU is underclocked from the manufacturer. But, there is a reason for that, it was not just something to tick people off. They test the design of these phones. They set the CPU at the best speed to prevent it from overheating and damaging itself.
As for the MotoBlur "BLOAT" that so many people hate. I'm not root, I'm running stock, just using launcher pro instead of Blur for the launcher (But blur is still on there), and I have 480MB free ram with several apps running and all system services running. It's a poor artist that blames his canvas if the painting turns out bad.
