Default Phone speed

Is it just me, or does the Precedent lag down sometimes, slow to respond, etc.? I can do a reboot and fix it, but it's annoying to have to do it every so often. Only one app will be running, and sometimes it's just the messaging, and all of a sudden it gets unresponsive, then tries to catch up. Messaging sometimes gets a half black screen for 30 seconds, etc. It's just little things, but I was wondering if there's anything I can do to eliminate these problems? It's irritating, because then if I want to play a game like draw something, it really freezes and takes forever to unfreeze, and of course, slow responding touch screen during a text kinda sucks.

Welcome to the forums, jdaniels.

Often it's the auto-syncing apps/widgets which slow a device down and also cause quicker battery drain. Setting those to sync on-demand, manually rather than running in the background along with their associated services can really put the snap back in Android phones and tabs.

Weather/News, Gmail, Facebook, etc.. all of it. Then reboot and see the difference.

Also, you should clear your phone log and text messages often.

Do this without the overclock. The added ram will do more for speed than the overclock and cost u less battery and heat
Secondly use cpu controle and use the profiles. Make screen off and phone state 480mhz. After that make sure u keep it all on preformace in cyogen mod or if on arearom [u can switch cyogenmod to arearom in the instructions] use an overclocked kernel and same profiles with charging at 800 and the main on default maxed out.

Afterthat task killer pro will let u ignore apps like superus3 and the launcher and autokill everything else up to every miniut. Restore ur open ram
