    I just rooted and over clocked. I have setcpu installed and set to under clock if the temperature reaches 40c. Is that ok? Can I safely push it to 45 or 50?

    At what temp should I start to get nervous?

    Thanks!

    Mine has only reached 38c and it felt pretty hot. I wouldn't push it to 45. Are you using the stock kernel or a hydra kernel?

    I'm using the Hydra Kernel. I'm currently using v0.7 with the 25mV over volt. I just checked and v0.8 is out. I'll give that a try and see if anything changes.

    At the time, Setcpu was set to under clock at 50 degrees Celsius. Two days ago my phone was in the upper 40's, I think it was 48C. I was web browsing outside in a low coverage area with lots of people around and it was about 95F (35C). I checked my brother's DInc and his was reading 38C and not being used.

    I think all the conditions about add up to a phone running hot. I lowered the temperature limit to 40C. Everything seems to be working fine still.
