When book reading with display@max battery use showy Display using 89% power and GPU overclock is still much less power hungry than CPU one
To test simply use battery monitor widget and brightness profiles program to observe how setting certain brightness profiles influence power consumption.
For me reading a book in Cool Reader with brightness@100% uses around 350mA while brightness@10% uses around 120mA (cpu in both cases @192-1720 but it mostly stays @192-384), gaming @100% results in around 800mA and @10% in around 550mA - these are demanding 3D games .
At all that time WiFi and GPS were turned on although not actively used.
CPU is undervolted by -50mV GPU320 version.

2 Gunkk - uhh i see now
Ran a System Tuner log for 15 mins of Angry birds. Phone got very hot. Pretty much pulled a steady ~750mA the entire time. As I said above, the game is a power hog. Nothing to do with kernel or ROM. CPU was set 192/1536, using 0.91 Enthusiast (320 GPU), 9/24 Energy Rom.
And now, back to your regularly scheduled kernel discussion....
It's a bit low, considering 5200 is the result of stock Sensation. Setcpu governor should be set as performance for the test (and test only, everyday use should be ondemand).
Here cf-bench @1294Mhz result are 5720 - 5790 (Same kernel), Sens-o-maniac 1.1 using Deamon Controller.
my cf brenchmark score is only about 5402
Is it normal?
using bricked kernel 1.2 gpu 320
arhd 3.6.1 clocked at 1.3ghz using set cpu
Try rebooting your Sensation and then run CF-Bench just after the device starts up again. (After it gets network connectivity and all.) That should give you a cleaner run and better more reliable results.
All that was @ 1720 with few times that I tested 1720 performance governor.
About 1 hour of book reading (@night so min backlight) some 1/2 hour of music maybe 10 benchmarks (cf and nena) and 45 minutes of calls.
All in all I think I really like this kernel
