I thought it'd be interesting to get an early idea of what stable speeds users are able to clock their devices to? Honesty is obviously the best policy here, as we're trying to determine a range of values, not see who has the most super awesome phone.

No-frills CPU control will enable you to overclock a rooted phone. A good way of beginning to determine your maximum stable speed is to download quadrant from the market and run benchmarks at progressively higher overclock speeds, until the phone freezes or reboots. But you should also test other tasks, like navigating through screens and menus, opening and closing applications, etc. Your max is the value beneath the speed that the phone freezes/reboots at.

My Monte Carlo doesn't like anything above 960 MHz. Any higher and I get almost immediate reboots.

*edit* After further testing, it looks like 940 is actually my max. It'll work at 960 for the most part, but I've had two reboots now meaning that it's unstable at that speed. Poll updated to reflect change.

The highest I could clock my skate before was 940MHz, everytime I ran Quadrant above 940Mhz my phone froze, I haven't ran it for over a month and i've just ran it now a few times without any crashes at 998MHz, however...my phone doesn't work on 1017MHz, i'm using Bluemonte rom V1.5, this is the first time I have tested on this rom.

I have clocked the phone at 902mhz for no other reason than I can. I do not play that many games but if it is offered in the kernel I thought that running the phone from 122mhz to 902mhz is just another thing to do when the ROM is installed, just like adding my contacts etc.

Quadrant standerd: 1372
AnTuTu Benchmark: 2178
Stability test: Ran all three test's 5 hours each with no errors.

Mine will work and is stable at 998MHz

ROM: Atomic v4
Clock: 998
AnTuTu Benchmark: 2131

But being a graduate electronic engineer with 30 years experience I run it at 921 so that I know it will run over a wide range of temperatures and other conditions

Clock: 921
AnTuTu Benchmark: 1975
