    I realize how much faster the hero can be when its wimpy processor is overclocked. I would imagine that ocerclocking would be bad for it though, to push the CPU faster than its made to be, but most people don't mind it. I'm wondering, realistically, if it is hard on the CPU to be overclocked and also how it affects battery life. Keep in mind, I'm talking about overclocking the roms made to be like zen, aloysius, purehero, busted, ect...

    Anything that makes heat= BAD. Overclocking in and of itself isn't really bad, it is the heat that is generated that is. If you are careful, and don't work it so hard that it is really hot all the time, then overclocking won't really hurt your phone that much.... From all I've read, they have a fairly robust processor, and can take a fair amount of abuse before they start to feel the affects, anyhow. Just my .02, of course, so if you feel uncomfortable with it, by all means, don't do it!

    Ok good to hear that, I remember when I was using Zen and the CPU clock was stuck at wide open throttle it hit like 113 degrees via battery indicator. Any idea how hot is too hot?
