    Hey all,

    Was wondering if there are any negative effects of overclocking to 1.5? Significant change in battery life? Temperature increase?

    Thanks

    WebOS @ 1.5 runs smooth without any drawbacks I can find, other than regret that it is destined for the trash heap

    The chip is rated at 1.5ghz so I don't feel it is over taxing it. As far as battery consumption, I have not noticed any difference from the stock setting. FYI, my Pre has been overclocked now for over 2 years (currently at 500/1000 setting) with no I'll effects so far.

    I am about 3 weeks into overclocked cpu. Nothing negative so far. Battery life is still pretty good.

    1.5 has been working great for me. 1.7 caused my Tp to stall and freeze randomly so I got rid of that.

    No negative effect, not even a battery one that I can see. The cpu up and down scaling keeps the unit very power efficient. Like many have said, and what you have probably heard a thousand times, the Qualcomm Snapdragon cpu is rated at 1.5Ghz from the manufacture, so changing the cpu from 1.2Ghz to 1.5Ghz is not an overclock at all.

    This chip was rated fine up to 1.5 anyways*

    The 64gb Touchpad is clocked at 1.5ghz with the same cpu as the 16 and 32.

    Changing from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz was the first thing I did as soon as I got my Touchpads.

    After a few days, I forgot all about it... in fact, can't tell that it's at 1.5GHz
    unless I open Govnah and check the settings...

    0.3Ghz is not really not that much.

    I just swapped ou FC15 for UberKernel running at 1.5GHz to save on battery life and I have to say it feel snappier than I thought it would after running at 1.82 for as long as I did.

    people really need to search a little. 1.5ghz is NOT overclocking, anything more is. I've been running 1.7, no issues.

    running 1.8 on f4, been issue free for about a month. No noticeable decrease in battery life, but I am sure there is if you use 8 hrs per day.

    I did the same.

    Have you tweaked any of the settings in UberKernel? Are the default advanced settings the best? I'm not sure what they all do.

    Exactly. I wish this topic would stop popping up. I believe the Touchpad is the only tablet that has a 1.5 ghz CPU, but was underclocked to supposedly try and match the iPads battery life.

    If you read the tech specs, the processor family is spec up to 1.5ghz, however, according to wiki, our model is only 1.2ghz. *This likely means that the sister chip in the family is the one that is 1.5ghz, and although it may be possible that all of them in the wild actually will run at 1.5 with out problems, the actual specs for the chips are not known. *It could also mean that all of the chips in the family will run up to 1.5 but that's not really known since the touchpads are the onlything that got this model.

    I haven't heard of anyone cracking open any of the ultra rare 1.5ghz models and saying that they do, without a doubt, have the same processor, rather than the other more common model. If they do, then I totally take this back.

    One possible negative effect is that if you brick your Touchpad and can't return it back to the standard kernel, there is a possibility that HP might decide that you have voided the terms of your warranty. I say "possibility" as I've not heard of this actually happening to anyone.
