I like the Doomkernel but overclocking the GPU scares me somewhat (since you can't change the GPU clock rate)

If the GPU/CPU is broken I don't think I can afford a new one...

So like the title, what OC rate is safe to use ?

All phones behave differently so some phones will oc to 2 GHz with no side effects while some won't go past 1.4 GHz

So u should try it yourself

Oc above 1.4GHz without undervolt is dangerous
If you can undervolt 1.6GHz to 1250mV, 1.6GHz are safe, too
So just use 1.4GHz if you can't get a new phone in case you brick it

Just like a Computer CPU...you should only overclock in small increments..then check for stability.

Personally, i would advice against overvolting the phone..

I keep my phone @ 1.2GHZ..I don't find the need to go beyond this. Then again, i dont play too many games on it

I have "DooMKernel v4" and "Extreme Voltage Control" in the Arc S but did not appear the options to change the voltages. Why?
