Good to see you here imoseyon.
What's the thermal throttling set to? I see a lot of thermal "alarms" in my logcat while running benches at 1.9GHz, at temps in the mid 50's (celsius), and it throttling back down to 1.1GHz. Happens a lot on Vellamo, and it actually makes the score at 1.9GHz lower than at 1.5GHz.
Perhaps the threshold can be safely increased?
