since nobody seems to have any insight, id like to update with a note or two...
PA 4.3-Beta2/Dirty-V 20140422 is BADASS. Memory management is MUCH better. only about 40-50% RAM usage anymore. here are the settings im using (with TricksterMod for PERFORMANCE...battery is...meh):
I/O - 1280/fiops
Max Scr. Off 525000
Min Scr. On 350000
Governor - interacivex/smartassv2/ondemand (i switch between them for no reason at all really, just to test the difference. none really noticed. dyninteracive causes bootloop)
Content Adaptive Brightness - ON
Force Fast Charge - ON
Multicore Power Saving - 2 (just because...dont really know what impact it has)
High Performance Sound - ON
Headphone Volume Boost - 1
Vibrator Strenght - 127
Dynamic FSYNC - ON (havent noticed an impact either way...maybe battery life?)
Temperature Limit - 80
Temperature Throttle - ON
GPU OC - 384MHz (512 on my device causes garbage/lag in alot of games)
ZRAM - OFF (dont really understand its purpose...)
Voltages are untouched (suggestions?)
Phone does get pretty hot playing games like Asphalt 8/Real Racing 3/CoD: BOZ/CoD: Strike Team/anything graphically intense, but they all run exceptionally well. Apps that arent intense on resources are super snappy and much more responsive than they used to be on any other kernel/rom combo i tried.
These are just MY settings (again...for PERFORMANCE) Battery life is great depending on what im doing and how long im doing it for. Left alone with moderate internet usage i can get about 3/4 day with it. Gaming...forget it lol.
Any tips on better performance without the heat?
