    I think the general rule is to start to worry after it gets over 50 degrees C or around 122 degrees F. I think SetCPU has a contingency where if it gets above that temperature it will ramp down the frequency to a lower speed of your choice or maybe it was the Overclock widget that does that.

    Either way, I would try to keep it below that temperature. Someone else may have more insight on CPU temperatures and overclocking, so hopefully they will chime in as well.

    I would try to push your phone to 768 if can, if you are having random reboots or other troubles back it back down to 748 and so on...

    I have mine set at 768-556

    Is that with an unkapped kernel or straight off the ROM?

    I usually get 12-15 hours with normal usage, when I plug in at night, I'm around 30-40%

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know exactly how the Collin Battery Tweak controls battery usage?
