 Anyone remember what the 'stock' minimum cpu setting is? I know the stock max is 600...
Stock settings are 600 max 245 min.
SIO should be better for flash devices, but I have not read too much onto it. BFQ works really well on the desktop, so I go with that for now.
Also I use stock speeds to help avoid heating up, along with a good scaling governor like ondemand (maybe with some tweaks) and Smartassv2. I did runs of 729/480 on Froyo and that worked relatively well.
I'd spinoff into a big post of what speeds to use but it really depends on your usage patterns. I don't believe ANYONE should be using the really high settings (800+, or even more than 748) due to the heat, and of course the governor will matter there as well. Something like interactive will keep yourself at the higher speeds to minimize lag and making your battery drain much faster. Example being, I can read a web page and interactive will mostly keep me at high speeds with the scrolling between and pressed and such. Ondemand will scale me down until I do something usually, so the actual reading part will be at the lowest speed. Interactive does scale down yes, but at a slower pace than ondemand.
Most governors are tweak-able in SetCPU. I myself am privy to OnDemand and Conservative, with conservative being slower to ramp up speeds, being easier on the battery. Using conservative help the battery at the cost of some performance, but its a minor trade off if you can tweak it to ramp up a little bit faster under load.
