I like having setpcu for the quite access from status bar, and the extra info it provides and of course a "just in case" temperature profile, never know when some app or something might make it get extra hot for some reason...at any rate, I suppose I'll just sacrifice a little bit of battery life for responsiveness, I like it quick and snappy lol

Sampling rate is just how often the android OS checks to see if it needs to be ramped up. I have it set at 32000 as i read by a few people this is the best value.
Up threshold: I'm not 100% on how it works but i've found the higher the number, typically the less time i'm spent at my max freq. I think i read its something to do with how the CPU is managing everything. Higher number=better battery though, i know that for sure. Alot of people just say put it at 50 but i put mine at 99.
ignore nice: NO IDEA. i just havent taken the time to find out because everyone ive talked to just has it set to its default.
powersave bias: What it sounds like. Higher the number the more it will try to save battery.
Powersave bias+upthreshold can really help you save battery. You might not notice a difference between on up threshold(you would see the difference in quadrants though) but on powersave bias- you most definatly will.
By no means is this going to clarify all your questions but its all i know regarding it and it works for me.
i think my advanced section is 32000-99-0-0 though im going to play around with powersave bias.
EDIT: i'm adding this link because its amazing for setcpu info. OverClocking 101
Edit2: i got powersave bias set at 333 and i'm not noticing any difference. I'm on 250-1k ondemand. So if im not noticing a difference then i'll keep it because its still saving more battery i guess

Thanks man, your explanations have helped and thanks for reminding me about the Overclocking 101 post. I actually have it saved in my Favorites, but forgot about it because itís been so long since I first read it, and then it was really hard to understand. Now that Iím a more savvy I think Iíll understand it more.
