Default setcpu settings

What are people using for their setCPU settings? I'm just now rooting and will be installing this to help with battery life. Unless for some reason this isn't necessary on the S3. It was essential on the S2 (in my opinion) to keep my battery life going longer.

I'll start it off apparently!

Not messing with any governor, just the profiles.

Charging - CPU can run at 1512 max, 594 min - priority 100
Screen Off - CPU max of 594, min 384 - priority 99
Battery <80% - CPU max of 1242, min 594 - priority 80
Battery < 60% - CPU max of 810, min 384 - priority 60
Battery < 50% - CPU max of 594, min 384 - priority 50

How well does it work if you're playing music and the screen is off?

I don't have any music on my phone. I just use Pandora for everything, though i should probably put something on my phone.

I just set this up this morning and my phone has been sitting in my dock at work, so i can't say for sure about battery life. As for apps. I've not noticed a single problem. Again, I rooted my phone last night, so I don't have a ton of apps on my phone. Currently I have

Waze
Pandora
One More Clock
SetCPU
Betterbatterystats
MetroStation Icon Pack
Apex Launcher
NFC Task Launcher
Mynetdiary
Rom Manager Pro
Zedge.

Most of those are supporting apps. so it's hard to say if anything is flaking out yet. I'll slowly add more apps. I'm going to start a thread about known battery drain apps so we can start identifying those.

Default My Settings

Here are some settings I use that seem to work well for me. Id say these settings aren't the most conservative but they aren't battery hungry either. I didn't mess with any of the governors or voltages I just simply added these profiles to control my leankernel. Hope this helps! -Cheers

Do these settings still work good for you? I entered them into my SG3 so will see how it goes for the next few days. I am really looking for battery life more than anything.
thanks
