    I'm getting a dinc tomorrow and was wondering a few things, I did a search but didn't see what I was looking for in a all in one so please don't get mad.

    What is the highest dinc overclock anyone has gotten? Which rom and kernal
    What is the lowest underclock you can set your dinc to and not have any troubles with waking up?

    1.19 I believe is the highest overclock possible, but not every phone can achieve it without the phone becoming unstable. 1.13 is stable for nearly everyone.
    Overclocking is not a big topic on the incredible because it offers very little in noticeable improvement.

    Most people seem to be able to underclock to about 275 with the screen off before noticing any lag on wake up.

    The "smart ass governor" is also pretty popular which takes care of those things for you.

    We don't do that here, welcome. Agree with sdrawkcab, I quit overclocking a long time ago as it just doesn't make much difference other than some instability glitches. Occasionally I even have a glitch (usually browser randomly closes) at 1.13 but it's pretty stable for the most part. I just run at stock speeds now even on kernels that allow over/under.

    Mine runs at 247 min on CM7 but I seem to remember than number being too low on previous Roms so I'm guessing the kernel has been tweaked to allow stability at that speed.

    I'm running Cm7, but I don't have smartass as an option. I'm guessing I need a different kernel?
