    I did search and didn't find everything, unless I missed a post so feel free to post the link if I in fact missed something.

    So I am root, BB .72 +950OC, nandroid bu, etc.
    I DLed Set CPU and used autodetect, so it is max at 950.
    A couple easy questions.
    I have it Set on Boot
    What exactly is the CPU governor. I have it set on "powersave" right now.
    There are other choices such as "ondemand" which is default and performance, ie.
    What do these do and will it conflict with my set profile?
    I have my profiles set as:
    Charging 950/550
    Sleep/standby 125/125
    Power <30 550/125

    I am going for some battery savings, but I want it to be real snappy on navigation, voice control, flipping screens and loading icons and such with Home++.

    Does this profile sound good? And the question of "what to set CPU governor at?" still remains.
    Anything I am missing overall?

    Thanks in advance and I hope this thread will help others.

    I did and thanks it's been very helpful so far.

    The CPU Governor drop down box contains a list of CPU "governors" that the phone can use. Available governors will vary with your specific device and kernel. The Performance governor, called "Always Max" on previous versions of SetCPU, allows your phone to run at maximum speed, ignoring all power saving functions. The "ondemand" setting scales the phone between the maximum and minimum speeds.


    Maybe I am reading it wrong, but does this mean that my scaling profiles won't be utilized in "performance" mode?
    I am using it now and it's phenomenal but there is no way for me to tell if performance is knocking out my profile because the profile still shows as being active.
    I hope that makes sense.
