i reflashed the rom and things seem alot calmer now, so thanks for the info. if it keeps up i might have to switch to a different rom, tho part of me may die inside going back to sense.
It's okay to overclock your CPU, as long as the ROM you're using is stable. Overheating is usually caused by the processor being pegged, along with sensors in a "locked on" state...generally when the device has encountered a serious bug or when you play a game that really pushes the device's limits (like trying to play Dungeon Defenders and NOVA2 on a DroidX that can barely handle it
I know what you mean about Sense, I think Vorbeth has spoiled all of us on AOSP!
