For those of you with a Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100, GT-N7105, or SGH-I317, you can install Note2Core kernel “Asylum” to get maximum overclocking up to 1.92Ghz and GPU overclocking up to 640Mhz.
This isn’t for the faint-hearted but for those of you who need to take your Note 2 to the maximum. With my AT&T Note 2 SGH-I317 overclocked to 1.92Ghz, I was able to get my new Note 2 benchmark records of over 8000 on Quadrant and 18,000 on Antutu.
Now, for daily driving, I don’t recommend overclocking more than 1.8Ghz but for pure fun, see what kind of numbers you can get on Quadrant and Antutu at 1.92Ghz. And yes, it’s pretty safe to overclock your phone but if you burn your CPU, we will not be responsible, you’ve been warned.
However, I do enjoy beating my daily driver Note 2 at 1.8Ghz, comfortably increasing my UI while battery drain is about the same.
Try it out and let me know how it goes for you! And make sure you flash the correct kernel for your Note 2!!!
