Default recommendations for stable, lightweight KK rom

I'm looking for a stable KitKat rom on s2. have tried slim (stable) and carbon (nightly) but both seem to lag, FC and/or RR. Can you recommend me some or is it better to switch back to JB? Is the battery drain on KK always higher than on a stable JB?

not yet, my thoughts are: the bigger the rom, the more probable it is, that it consumes more battery. Slimrom seemed to be the smallest rom I found so far for s2. But I know I should try KK since it replaced Dalvik with ART. Nonetheless I might give CyanogenMod a try. Should I go with the M-builds, since there is no stable release since 4.2.2?

Please dont ask for "best ROM" as stated above its not allowed on xda.
