    I have tried both with multiple kernals and it seems that my phone runs better when I am using Set CPU. I was wondering if it was just me or has anyone else noticed this.

    My install will only OC to 700 with UD, setcpu will let it go full.

    My phone seems to run smoother with set cpu also, but it may just be all in my mind.

    using quick system info and it is showing only being clocked to 700 although in UD I have it set to min and max 1100. tried different settings but no luck. hopefully someone will figure it out so I dont need setcpu anymore.

    SetCPU + Slayer 1200 = runs smoother, faster, cooler, and better batt life than stock UD.

    First time using a Slayher kernel and I am getting amazing batt life from this combo.

    Used to be around 100* F during typical use. Now stays around 98.

    I'm not sure what the difference is really, its just SetCPU allows for profiles based on settings. It could be how you can adjust other settings or not but I believe they both do the same thing, which is alter a file indicating on how the frequency can be adjusted?

    I'd have to look at Skull's Thread again, but he had a similar argument when Pete was claiming you don't need SetCPU running BB. That turned out to be a huge can of worms opened up, and Skull summarized by saying SetCPU runs profiles so you can customize it however you wish, while (as here) it doesn't appear that the ROM has any built-in safeguards (there may be but I don't have a copy of the code), such as when the battery level gets low, or the CPU or Battery temp gets too hot.

    I also use the 1200 slayer lv kernel with this rom and I use setcpu and seems to work a lot better....I would like to know what most people put the setting on...like ondemand performance etc...I use ondemand but is that the best for overall performance and battery life too?

    i've always used ondemand and my phone is always super responsive. i've read that putting it on conservative may preserve some battery life, at the expense of a little (barely noticeable) choppiness in scrolling. i haven't tried it though. had a question about the 1200 kernel though stabl...what kind of battery life are you getting? on the stock kernel i'm getting around 24-26 hours of usage...wondering if i should try the 1200 or if there's any noticeable difference

    I always used to use on demand but over the last week I switched to performance. There doesn't seem to be that much of a difference battery wise for me using the slayher 1.2ghz kernel

    and you're noticing more responsiveness with the performance setting?
