I know that if you OC/UV incorrectly, it can cause stability issues. But I was wondering does it cause any damage to the phones hardware like battery, etc? And like how can you tell when SETCPU is causing problems?

Well if you OC to high numbers your just stressing the cpu more.Knowing when you have issues is simple getting random reboots,phone getting too hot etcc.

It differs for every phone but undervolting -25 for each voltages works well.
Personally I really don't see the point overclocking to high levels like 1.4 ghz etc,Is up to individual I guess.

Yeah I have been wondering what's the point of OC to 1.4? Does it make that big of a difference in the 4g speed? And cpu speed?

Honestly, there really is no point other than for benchmarks. I, like mt3g, actually underclock the phone to something like 750-760mhz; it runs beautifully smooth.

Other than that, if you game a lot and want to maximize FPS, then overclocking would do that for you.

Doesn't have anything to do with 4g speed afaik. That's entirely reception.

Yeah 4g is about reception and tmobile simply.

I mean I had single core devices like MT4g ,SGS 4g for the most part on a day to day basis transitions to transitions theres not much diffirence in terms of speed. Now for FPS and a few other games you need that dual core.Point is there"s no need to OC a dual core phone!

I have had mine OC'd to 1.1 ghz with some undervolts. It is very stable , 10-12 hr battery with medium to heavy use , and ofcourse fast. Took a while to find the best settings.

When I have SetCPU set to 1015 megahertz, that's the same as stock voltage, isn't it?

What does CPU speed have to do with voltage?

setcpu phone overclocking
Changes you might see are battery life but not that much unless you so how mess with voltage. Like other have said you know it effecting stability when its overheating, shutting down randomly, exiting program randomly.
