    I believe the Phiremod 6.3 is a CM based rom that comes with the ability to OC, I could not get it to flash so I went with CM I think you have to use an app to OC CM, haven't tried it.

    If you want a custom ROM CM7 is a good way to go. Other custom ROMs are based on CM7 and don't seem to be updated as much. The newest CM7 stable (7.1.0) has the ability to overclock up to 1200MHz built in so all you have to do is go to settings and turn up the speed. CM7 can be applied to either a bootable SD card or internal memory. Unless you wan't B&N software for some specific reason or are just afraid to mess with the internal partition there is no reason not to install it internally. If those are concerns then you can run from a bootable SD card without issue.

    As long as you use at least a Class 4 Micro SD card you'll be fine. Be sure to get an MSD that comes with an adapter to fit a standard SD card slot unless your PC card reader has a slot for an MSD, which is very unlikely.

    If you are asking about lowering the speed regarding the overclock, it will run between 300MHz and 1200MHZ (1.2GHz) as needed, stepping up and down as the processor requirements change.
