I want to over clock my HTC Desire using Set CPU

What should my max over clocking be , and what temperature should my CPU run at to be safe ?

I'm currently using the RCMixHD kernel.

Depends on your kernel.

Also, li-ion batteries are designed for use around 20c-60c, but as it goes past 40c, I think it has higher discharge rate.

Depends on your phone & kernel combo - 1113 Mhz is stable for the most of the people.
I suggest playing around with and test it - 1113+ is OK for some, but if you'll get reboots and the phone gets hot, then it is not recommended.
Also if you are OCing, you'll get more power, but worse battery life.

I have Coutts 2.6.38 kernel and it allows me to underclock to 128MHz and 1190MHz overclock and I use ondemand since games don't like other governers. The underclock is bloody great to have as it consumes bugger all battery life and kind of balances out the overclock. However, as nagypapi said, you might not be able to get these speeds since your phone might get hot or reboot. I think people fail to realise that not all devices are the same and what works for one person, might not work for another.

Max. clock should depend on kernel support(if the kernel supports it, then that's your maximum clock). As for temperature, I have a profile on SetCPU which down-clocks the CPU when the temperature reading goes above 36 degree celsius. All other times it works between 806MHz-245MHz OnDemand.

Sort of goes without saying that the higher the CPU cycles the more battery juice your phone will consume and the quicker your battery will drain. I use GingerVillain which supports speeds 128Mhz - 1113mhz and using Richard Trips 2.0b OC kernel (based 2.6.37.4) seems to keep battery alive for a good 24hrs. If it's any help my SetCPU profiles are as follows :

On Charge : 128-1113 performance govenor
Sleep/Standby : 128-576 conservative
Battery < 100% : 128-998 performance
Battery < 75% : 128-883 ondemand
Battery < 30% : 128-652 ondemand
Failsafe Temp > 45.1c : 128-768 conservative

Seems to give me a good balance of speed and battery life, but would be interested to hear from anyone else that thinks my settings are wrong, always looking to improve my phone!

I would like to try this settings, but could you please also add priorities for each setting?
Also what is your main governor? (when you startup SetCPU)

Other thing i dont understand why people use such high cpu freq for battery charging (when its charging and im never using phone then, isnt it better to put some low freq. and power saving profile?)
Same about Standy/Screen off.

128 is too low, it makes my phone slow, 245 is better IMO.

I know it, but weird, when I set the lowest value to 128, my phone's reaction become laggy, but 245 has no such problem. Maybe it's affected by kernel or rom.

sorry for my poor english
