I'm a huge gaming nut, I game on my pc, xbox360, ps3 and on my android phones. I've noticed that it doesn't take much time for the note 3 and it's gpu/cpu to heat up to the point where it's almost to hot to hold. This wasn't a problem on the note2 and it's exnyos cpu, I'm loving the slimness of the phone but thinking that's also why it gets hot soo fast.

I generally don't play too long, mostly 15-20 minute sessions of dead trigger 2, Asphalt 8 or Riptide 2. Anyone else notice this? I'm thinking maybe when the ZL battery comes thru and the extra bulkiness it will take a bit longer to heat up. That or maybe it's time for companies like Seidio,Otterbox etc to make some liquid cooled phone cases lol

I suppose it depends on the game but my GN3 doesnt't get too hot playing the two games you mentioned and it's over clocked. I'm on Darthstalker 3.0 with leankernal if that makes any difference.

How long are you playing the games? I'm not even overclocking, I'm on Omega rom with compulsion kernel. It's not a huge deal to me and don't think it happens all the time, could be the amount of apps installed on my phone too..

Don't charge your phone while playing and it will run much cooler

I'm not playing with the phone charging, matter of fact I just played about 4 missions on dead trigger 2 and it's already starting to get too hot. It's gotta be the snapdragon chip, none of my other phones have ever gotten this hot in soo little time.

Again I haven't overclocked or play while charging ever. This phone needs a water cooling case for reals lol

Remove mpdecision from /system/bin (but just rename it.. Add "00" to the beginning or something) and run with all 4 cores online. You will find you get better battery life and your device will not ramp as much.

This is what I do personally...

Ondemand
Deadline

io_is_busy - 1
up_threshold - 95
sampling_rate - 20000

Stock has up_threshold at 85 or 90 if I'm not mistaken, way too aggressive for a processor of this caliber.

And mpdecision is way too aggressive. I don't need all 4 CPUs spinning up to max when I open my messages app.

Also, edit your /system/etc/init.qcom.post_boot.sh file to have this line it (see picture)

Now that's a reply that looks helpful, I'll do all that test out some games and report back!

Here is my battery life in a typical day with that setup I just described...
