Might sound like a silly question, (apologies if it does), but when if u've overclocked ur phone's chipset won't you need to worry about overheating and how do u deal with cooling it down, or does the battery simply run out before it gets the chance to overheat

It's not a silly question at all. With over clocking, some chips require more voltage then others to reach high speeds (not all chips are capable of OC'ing). In this case, I don't see a phone user being able to increase voltage to a cell phone cpu, there fore, the current cooling should be suffice until the battery drains dead.

Yeah the battery on that will die in about an hour. Then again my inspire is overclocked to 1.8 so maybe I shouldn't be talking lol.

Go high speed phone. I want to see the dual core at 2.4 Ghz to equal my last desktop. Bring on full photoshop on a 3.7-4.3 inch screen so I can edit and process my 30 Mb raw files on the road and create 300 Mb Tif's. Might need to add an external HDD and rig up a Laptop battery and even a bluetooth mouse.

But seriously, is it possible to over clock my HD2 ? My current desktop runs at 4 Ghz quad core.

I believe that you can if you put Android on it. Not really sure if it can with WinMobile.

I don't think so. It is possible in theory to make an App for OCing the Snapdragon under WinMo 6.5, but I don't know of anyone who has done it. But, I think there is an Android app for OCing used by those who've put Android on their HD2.

I can OC my Samsung Omnia 2 (WinMo6.5) with FPUEnabler and S3Clock, but this is specific to this processor. (I never OC it, it just doesn't give enough benefit, and is unstable if I OC to more than 900MHz from 800MHz)

That's some really good speeds, but I'm sure that it isn't very stable at those speeds though.

Yeah, but what's the point of having such high speeds. The software is not optimized to take advantage of the speed. Even with a Custom ROM everything is already opening quickly with the Thunderbolt; how much quicker will over-clocking it so high get it?

Isn't that the fastest overclock speed? I thought it use to be the nokia n900 which was overclocked to 1.9ghz. Very cool though
