    Hey guys, I rooted my phone and installed Milestone overclock and gave it a small overclock to 1.15ghz. My question is, what are good temps for my battery and cpu to run at with this small overclock?

    The monitoring apps I put in say my battery is running at 82F and my cpu is running at 58F. This of course being at idle. I haven't had time yet to put her under load and check the temps.

    Yes, 58F. That's what this little widget is telling me. I'm all ears with a good app for telling me cpu+battery temps. That's assuming the ones I have are reporting my temps incorrectly. So from your reaction, my cpu temp is good?

    Considering how room temp is usually around 65-70

    Like I said, recommend a good monitor. Then when I get real readings I can post them.....:)

    I actually have 3 apps that register battery temp and all 3 read the same. Try Mini Info or System Panel both free in the market.

    I dunno. :D

    It appears to be a blue Galaxy S theme.

    I suspect it was a Gummy, Tranquility or Liberty theme that changed them.

    FOUND IT. http://onix-android.com/2010/09/gala-x-theme-updated-to-1-5-1/

    "Grab it in Rom Manager!"

    Rom manager... Download Rom... MrBobrowitz... Gala X Beta Theme (The Blue Headed Step Child).

    So is battery temp more important than cpu temp when overlocking? I just want to know because everyone is talking about battery temps and cpu temps seem to be an after thought.

    Battery gets warm when you're drawing a lot of current from it or charging it.

    Cpu gets warm when you're doing something cpu intensive.

    Usually they go hand in hand.

    If you overclock AND undervolt, you don't have to worry about the temp. You have to worry about temps when you set a high overclock speed with much higher than stock voltages.

    Also has a lot to do with the fact that we cannot probe for the CPU temp on DX/D2/etc.
