Some kernel's allow for overclocking for a more responsive and faster interface when used with SetCPU. Others are overclocked without SetCPU.
Even without overclocking some are faster operating and more responsive than others, giving higher quadrant scores.
The biggest benefits tend to be in the battery life though.
I've been using the kernel I linked above for about a week and a half, its not overclocked, but the responsiveness of the phone and battery life are both increased over others I've tried.
