The only drawback to overclocking the cortex a8 in the omap3 is battery life. It doesn't produce any significant amount of heat compared to running at 600mhz, nor does it shorten the life of the chip. It will drain your batteries, however. The chip will down-clock to about 150mhz, which, it is claimed by the OpenPandora crew, will allow about 100-200 hours of mp3 playback.
We shall see
