    Just tried to oc to 1.3 ghz, tons of random reboots... so i went down to 1.1 ghz, with the same thing. So I guess I'm stuck at 1ghz for now. Could this be the ROM I am running (smoked glass v4.0) or is 1 ghz just the max for my phone to be stable? How fast are you guys going while staying stable?

    I've been at 1.3 since Monday morning. Not one reboot. Before that, I ran at 1.1 for over a week.

    Is 950 mhz a lot slower than 1ghz? What rom is the best if I want to try going 1ghz?

    Where you wanna be!
    Im on BB 7.5 right now that just came out. It upped the speed to 1g instead of 950mhz but im keeping mine at 950 for now, its plenty fast enough for me, Im debating on trying the new taz kernel though with the 1300 that joe is using

    It all depends on your processor, 1300 wont work for everyone, it's not so much which ROM is more stable. Every processor is different ever so slightly, and some will be able to handle the 1300, but others wont. Still, 950-1000 is damn good considering stock is 550, heh. Don't push your phones too hard guys. Joe just got lucky with a good processor and not all of ours will be able to do that. If you're getting any sort of reboots, ramp it down a notch or two.

    In the forum dog house.
    I've been running 1GHz for a couple days with no problems. The governor in SetCPU is set on "ondemand", and I have my lows set to 250MHz, so it's not throttled up all the time. But I never have any FC issues, it's lightening fast, and the batter life has improved due to the ability to throttle down while not in use.

    The ROM has little to do with it. It's more luck of the draw. Some processors are fine at 900, some at 1GHz, and some at 1.3GHz. Mine just doesn't seem to care. I bought the TempMonitor app and it's really running no hotter than o/c'ed at 800.

    And yes ... it is faaaaaaast!

    Yeah, mine went buggy at 1.1, so I'm at 1.0 and it's fast enough for me.

    Rather have that than a microphone that sounds like a dryer full of socks when I speak...

    I know I've read them in another thread but what are solid standard operating temperatures (norm/max) an what are you running at 800 and 1.3?

    I'm running at 1ghz right now on the bb rom and suprisingly I can tell a difference. Also, I've run a few benchmarks with set cpu and I'm getting the following averages

    550: ~435ms
    800: ~290ms
    950: ~250ms
    1000: ~225ms
    Again, these are average scores based on approximately 10 benchmark tests(for each speed) at about 1 sec intervals.

    I'm gonna try 1.1 GHz again... I see joe has his setcpu set to ondemand, I had mine on performance. You guys think this might make a difference?

    EDIT: Haha seems to be working perfectly at 1.1 GHz now just by changing to ondemand in setcpu :)

    Ya, performance can hurt big time in SetCPU, I've seen several people have problems with that setting.

    Can't even boot any boot image over the 1Ghz Taz boot image, and running at 950 or 1000 doesn't go well w/my device, so I stick to 800.

    Running bugless beast 8.6.

    I've been running Solid (not a singe FC) for over 24 hr.s at 1.3GHZ using Taz's latest kernel... mostly stock otherwise, no custom rom just standard custom on stock... no 2.1 apps yet... so really only rooted to get ability to load the OC kernel.

    hmmm, my max setting is 1ghz. what did you do that allows you to go up to 1.3ghz? Im running mine at 800mhz just cause that speed seems to make the phone snappy enough, didn't notice any difference at 1ghz. I figure I would leave it at the low end to make it last longer.

    You have to get Taz's 1.3 kernel to run 1.3. If you're running Pete's Bugless Beast, he only added Taz's kernel that goes up to 1Ghz to his package. So you'd either have to flash Taz's 1.3 kernel separately, or wait for pete to include it or use a different package entirely (maybe sholes has the 1.3?).
