Anyone had any luck actually getting apps like SetCPU, Android Overclock, etc. that allow you to create CPU profiles?

Prior to CM7/DX I would usually always run SetCPU with profiles to run the CPU at 300/300 with the screen off, 300/800 for 51% CPU & 300/600 for 26% CPU. This worked great on all other DX ROMS but with CM7 it seems to make the phone/battery run REAL hot or sometimes just not even load at bootup.

I would also sometimes run Quickclock Advanced to undervolt the CPU and that doesn't seem to work properly with CM7/DX either.

Anyone had any luck? feedback?

The other question though is do you see an increase in battery temperature? Anytime I try to do that the phone immediately heats up which causes the battery life to be even worse then it is already :/

I'm using Quick Clock Advanced to under volt and SetCPU for some profiles and they are both working fine for me.
Damn :( I know each phone responds differently to overclocking & undervolting but I guess with CM7 my phone is finicky.

May have to go back to Liberty or Apex GB for the time being until CM7/DX is complete :(

my opinion is...u dont really need to do anything to cm4dx....i run the lately nightly...and i undervolt it to low voltage...overclock it to 1.1...and leave it no profiles no nothing....cm as it is it made to be almost perfect when it comes to running fast. and the droid x isnt really meant to be overclocked or underclocked. being that we cant access the kernel. anything can make it unstable when it comes to a locked bootloader. thats why most of the time ppl just dont mess with the overlocking on the DX
Just because CM7 nightlies don't play nice with some profile apps doesn't mean its the fault of the locked bootloader.

Myself and many many others have had no problem running cpu profiles with undervolting/overclocking. I've never come across instability issues on my phone with other ROMS either.

If there was a way to run a kernel with a smartass governor (and not via a software hack), then I would totally agree on not needing to run cpu profiles.

Well been running SetCPU with 3 profiles and am undervolting with QuickClock Advanced for the past 3 days or so and so far no problems. Battery life seems to be slightly better but it wasn't playing nice with earlier builds (hence the original post).

Overall the battery does drain faster compared to other ROMS but it is manageable so I'll stick with CM7 for now.
