Default Fast and stable ROM

I know that such threads aren't welcomed, but friend of mine just brought me stock S III (i9300) whining that it's so slow. Since I've never flashed i9300 yet, I have absolutely no idea which ROM and kernel should I pick. Idea is to get maximum performance and stability as possible. Could you please help me with recommendation?

Hopefully mods will tolerate this thread, please consider it just as discussion to get few ideas which ROM to try for a newbie, not X versus Y.

Thanks

I tried many ROMs and for me, the best is NxTGen ROM 13.0. Not 13.1, i had some wifi issues with 13.1. The best on NxTGen 13.0 for me is, that there is really much free RAM compared to others. There is very good battery and speed is great too, but it depends on kernel settings (clocking, governors...). I reccomend you use it with latest RC1 boeffla kernel.

It isn't that this type of thread isn't welcome but against the posting rules, as they can lead to a flaming war. Try them all, don't share your conclusions.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

I know, I would try at least few of them out if it was my phone and I had time for testing. But unfortunately that's not the case here, so I just hoped for some friendly ideas which option is good to go. I really don't want to disappoint him...

Sorry...

"Best" or "Recommend" ROM/kernel threads are not allowed on XDA.
Please test these things for yourself.
This is the only way you will get an unbiased opinion,and then, you can decide for yourself if it meets YOUR needs.

Don't forget to make a nandroid before you start.
