EVO 3D Overclocked to 1.7GHz

Here's something to whet the appetites of EVO 3D and Sensation 4G owners alike, an overclock to 1.7GHz!  Michael Huang, the developer of SetCPU, posted this picture to Twitter of the EVO 3D running his application and clocked at 1728MHz.  Yes, the EVO 3D is still S-ON and still only has temporary root (no custom ROMs or kernels) but this was accomplished with a loadable kernel module.  For those of you who may not know, the Qualcomm MSM8660 utilized by the EVO 3D and Sensation 4G is a dual-core chip clocked at 1.2GHz out of the box, so this is a healthy increase over stock.  Huang promises it's coming soon, so you'll have to hold your horses for a little bit longer.  With S-OFF, full root, custom ROMs and kernels, is it possible we'll see 2GHz in the near future for these devices?  Sound off in the comments.

Update: The overclock for the EVO 3D has been released now and the clock speed has been upped to 1.8GHz.  You can check out the thread on XDA.
