Much less fair. I'd personnaly buy an overclocked device before a random one if his owner has filed the pins of the charger's micro-usb connector, as this component is much more prone to fault.

There is no evidence on the N900 for this overclocking warning. There is a thread thousands of messages long here with not one demonstrated instance of overclocking damage. Tell me how to damage my N900 with overclocking and I'll give it a try, just for you. The N900s come overclocked from the manufacturer. When you overclock, you are just deciding to try a different range.

pr 1.3 is a very clear improvement on pr 1.2 (imho).

No evidence on overclocking warning, sure its only me amongst other people that agrees its best to not overclock the device.

Sure there's no thread of one demonstrated instance of overclocking does damage but you could at least agree that with a CPU that has NO form of active cooling, is stuck inside a small little box could actually live long enough? Have you never heard of stories where with normal desktop CPU that one has not placed the heatsink on and that melted the CPU when the computer was turned on? Have you not heard of stories where people overclocked their desktop computers whilst running on stock heatsink and fan and noticed they started facing issues with lockups? Do you not think those would not affect a puny little handheld device like the N900?

I never denied that N900 came overclocked from the manufacturer, I'm just further advising against any more adjustments to increase that overclocked limit because you may (note the word MAY) shorten the lifespan of the device.

Also adjusting the higher clock frequency without actually utilising that frequency does not actually affect the device however under full load (remember, the device is not dumb enough to stick itself under highest frequency unless you chose to also increase the lower clock frequency).

I don't want to overclock it all the time, only when i play a game (psx emu), after i will set it back to default speed.
Right now i am working to to increase /home/ size for applications. I will set it to 10gb (to be sure it is big enough)
