Why choose one kernel over another, with same max speed?

    Assuming I set my max CPU speed to 0.8GHz, is there any reason I should use the 0.8GHz kernel instead of the 1.0GHz kernel included with the ROM? I realize there would be one more slot between the min and max, but is the finer control of the CPU speed really of any benefit?

    Running same max speed with a kernel that has a higher maximum? Only difference would be the higher max speed kernel would probably have a higher voltage than the other...probably a little worse battery life and higher temps...but really it wouldn't change much

    vsels(voltage) MIGHT be different which as the above poster said would cause higher temps/lower battery life.

    Also, some phones cant handle the higher speeds, so the lower max speeds are more suited to them which is probably why they exist :).

    I've found (and we all know fones vary) mine works best with 1G @ 800max, 250 min. LVkernel. My temps are good, phone is fast/snappy, and my batt life is good for me/what i put it through.
    I think that with less options of speeds to be selecting through my phone choses to either run quick @ .8 or idles at 250. For me, this works real nice. dancedroid
