Default Overclocking

So, I overclocked my CPU frequency to 1836MHz and my GPU frequency to 450MHz and after playing a game for like 10mins, my phone gets really hot. I know its normal but I would like to ask, did I overclocked my phone too much that it can destroy my phone? And what is the overheat temperature for my phone(HTC One)? So I can monitor it.

Thank you

Yes its possible to permanently damage your phone if your overclock is too much aggressive or your phone get to hot. Every chip is slightly different so you'll have to test your phone for each frequency steps you do. Like a computer, you should start overclocking in small increments till you reach a maximum stable config and then reduce it a bit for safety. And always monitor temperature, over-temping is your worst enemy when overclocking.

For the max temp question I don't really know, you might want to check qualcomm site for max safe cpu temps. Don't forget some other components doesn't like high temperature. Semi-conductors components life are reduced in high temp conditions and generally, lithium-ion battery doesn't like high temperatures...

So basically, overclocking can really destroy my phone? So, i guess ill just switch back to the stock one. Thank you

That overclock is not going to hurt your phone but the temperature can if it gets too high which can happen at stock clocking. I keep my phone's cpu at 1.134 Ghz and games run great with minimal heat.
