One of the things I dislike about the Fassy is it gets to hot with CPU and radios running full blast, sucking the battery. Some apps trigger the cpu governor to run at top regardless of how much clock it really needs, like AOR, Wifi Tether, ES Fileman (samba transfers). I manage mine by underclocking to 800mhz, and when doing certain tasks, to 400 or 200mhz. Voltage control free is a pain for this, and the paid version doesn't really function how I want it to. I've been switching all my functions to tasker, and this was next on the list. Its easy to use tasker to change CPU limits, you just might not have thought of it. Changing via app detection is extremely unreliable, using it as below makes for less moments where you are stuck at a low clock rate for no reason.

Some screen shots to give you an idea how to setup:
