After fresh installing 4.4.3 and later flashing multiple dalvik + bionic optimization files, my device no longer benefits from these optimizations speedwise.

On 4.4.2 I could install the Moto X libraries and bench higher than the Note 3 at about 39000 score now I struggle getting higher than ~24000.

I have tried the Moto X and Z2 libraries on stock and deodex stock roms.

What am I doing wrong here?

It is possible the library's are designed for 4.4.2.

Sorry I don't benchmark often but I did notice the lower scores in 4.4.3. You can wait for Motorola to update the x to 4.4.3 or look for other libraries

No, they work on 4.4.3 too.

They work, you're not letting your CPU temp drop down before benchmarking. Hotter CPU = earlier throttling = lower scores.

I let my N5 cool overnight and tested again in the morning and got 34930, higher than the Note 3.

The CPU throttling has to be much more aggressive on 4.4.3 because I did not see my scores fluctuate this much on 4.4.2.

The throttling is the same in both 4.4.2 and 4.4.3. Probably other kernel changes are influencing your score. Stock isn't very good for benchmarking anyways.
