    Well, to be honest, "works with MIUI" or any other rom mostly depends on how well your phone likes the kernel you're using. Not so much SetCPU.

    Find a kernel that runs cool to the touch under everyday use, then use setcpu to set profiles.

    My current setup:

    I'm running Slayher's latest 1275 kernel (but I keep it at 1000 max most of the time.)

    My profiles are simple:

    Main Profile: 250-1000 (ondemand)
    Screen off: 250-400 (conservative)
    Battery < 31%: 250-600 (conservative)

    I get decent battery life out of that.

    Also throw in charging and temp failsafe profiles.

    Ever since I started using Miui, I haven't used SetCPU. I get great battery life, my phone stays cool no matter what I do, and performance is awesome. SetCPU simply is not necessary with Miui as the ROM handles CPU clocking spectacularly on its own.

    Slayher 1100 MHz v1.6.

    Also, I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes but I'm a big proponent of using Auto Killer, I use the "optimum" preset. This is not a task killer app but an app that tweaks the native task manager settings to keep more RAM available than it will by default. It's very customizable with several presets.

    In my experience this seems to help boost performance substantially when multitasking, though I can't claim to have done any "scientific" testing.

    Also, my idea of "great battery life" might be skewed because I have 3 batteries and an external battery charger, so when I am low on battery I simply swap to a fully charged battery. So I would admit that battery life is a very slight concern for me since I never have to plug my phone in to the wall. I would say I average about 24 hours between battery charges but if I am doing heavy You Tubing or making long phone calls my battery life can be fairly short. But I just swap the battery out so that never bothers me.

    I was curious about this. I am using Slayhers 1250 v1.6 kernel. In Quadrant, I a, averaging mid to hi 1500's.

    I uninstalled SetCPU and only averaged mid 900's.

    I am not sure how MIUI handles overclocking, but SetCPU seems necessary to me.

    What is the stock Kernel on Miui can someone help me find out!
    Is there an overclock feature in settings of Miui ?

    Well if your goal is to post outrageous quadrant scores, you're absolutely right, SetCPU is necessary to attain that goal.

    I use Slayher's 1100 MHz kernel. My quadrant scores average between 900-1150. With most other ROMs and/or using SetCPU to overclock to the max, I would generally be able to get scores of 1300-1400.

    But I would say it's prudent to step back a bit and evaluate performance rather than quadrant scores. I would argue that the fact that I am not maxing out my quadrant scores actually illustrates the fact that the ROM is doing a wonderful job of clocking the CPU to the speed necessary to carry out the task(s) at hand, rather than maxing it out and unnecessarily decreasing battery life and raising the temperature to a potentially unsafe level.

    Since I haven't had a single complaint about performance when using this ROM, I find the question of attaining outrageous quadrant scores to be largely irrelevant.

    Question. Does the MIUI throttle up the cpu to kernel max? i.e. If you install a 1000mhz kernel, if need, will it use every mhz? Or will it only do the standard 600? I would like to eliminate a 3rd party app controlling this if possible. What do you think about setcpu? Keep it? or Dump it? In regards to MIUI rom only.
