    Mik3D beta1, with Golden Monkey kernel (think that is the nomenclature) worked pretty well for me.

    not a power user, but was in a building with bad coverage and it still held up well, also have Juice Defender and Setcpu with like a 128/245 screen off profile enabled.

    Also flashed the radio update.

    Been messing around with latest Evolved rom here lately, and now cm7 so can't remember exact details.

    Evolved ROM gave me really good results and I used both gold monkey and more freedom... I much prefer more freedom... I just switched to mikg2.5 and really like it... Still use more freedom kernel...

    Kernel and setcpu profile is gonna dictate your battery life more than the rom and you may have more luck than I did with gold monkey... It made my phone bootloop at a pretty low overclock but that isn't true for most from what I hear and see... Let us know what you get and how it works

    Best battery life and rom/kernel combo that I've found is Virus's 8/25 Eternity build and chopsuey .9.1.1 or Lithid's aggressive .9. Nice and fast

    Mik3D and stock kernel seems to b working well for me...

    FWIW... I've tried all the other kernels, and they just seemed to either drain my batt quicker, or cause some funk.... stock kernel gives... well, stock batt life, and the rom is smooth and fast...

    I forgot to mention, I use the InteractiveX profile. This way, there's no need for screen on/screen off profiles. Just run InteractiveX and all works like a charm:)

    I can't post a link from my phone but go to the thread of Synergy Kingdom 3.0, in that thread I posted a link for the 8/24 rom. It will take you to the 8/25 RLS_1 Nightly. This is the Eternity build.

    Just fyi, 8/24 build is GodMode and the 8/25 build is the Eternity build

    I've always wanted to try one of virus' ROMS, but never knew where to start because he has so many.

    I personally am a fan of Virus's roms, I know a lot of people have problems with the recent GodMode roms but I still like the 8/24 GodMode build from Virus. But I definitely like the 8/25 Eternity build:)
