Yeah, really interesting whether it is possible to make it as a steps like on GKD350H, where the highest is 1.9 GHz. 8-)
There is enough free space inside the housing near the processor to easily mount some copper heatsink there to handle the excessive heat because of overclocking. :geek:

We tried 1.4Ghz and 1.5Ghz with some higher core voltage options. But the system was quite unstable and even didn't boot from time to time.
So we think the SoC silicon yield rate seems to be very low.

Oh, thanks for sharing this info. Good to know you've tried to squeeze all the juices available in this hardware.

I think it's not a good idea, may be with a cooler...

You can reduce max cpu frequency and change governor, that should help.
Also reducing backlight will add time.

i'm really noob at linux stuff(as in near 0 experience), but with google found https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CP ... cy_scaling. Now, changing some "config" files , i think i can figure out, buuuuuuuut is there a little program for the OG Advance(for when it arrives) with GUI that i can use? ..... Hmmm i think even some batch files that changes the base/boost frequencies that i can run would be sufficient. Sorry for the troubles and thx for supporting this amazing handheld.

Taking 3 of the 4 cores offline may help a bit more than clock speed.
