    Hello, are there any games and apps that are noticeably better with the N3DS clock and l2 cache? I have already noticed that the camera app actually becomes usable with it.

    192.168.1.3 (don't ddos me!)
    OOT3D certainly isn't one. I tried it once and it sounded super cracky (like N64 emulation on a Pentium 3)

    The netflix app is WAY better when overclocked.

    why
    I'm curious too.

    There might be a difference on pokemon or/as/x/y, but it's minimal...

    Unless luma actually didn't overclock when i set it to...

    ORAS does nicely when using L2 and over clocking. I can play with full 3D with no lag.

    Donkey Kong Country Returns. Runs smoothly with the extra horsepower, turning it into easily one of the (if not the) prettiest games on the 3DS.

    And Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate performs quite a bit better. Shorter load times and all that.

    Would recommend OOT and MM3D. Both lose all their lag, so they now run at a smooth 30 fps consistently. (Don't play OOT3D through HANS. Use NTR or Luma3DS). I've also heard metal gear solid has 1/4 the loading times.

    I did notice better performance on Senran Kagura. And you need smooth FPS for... Well... The game's "features"

    LEGO City Undercover finally feels like an actual game with overclocking. And not the lag forest it is without it.

    Rayman 3D goes from ~30fps with dips in 3D to an almost perfect 60fps in 2D/3D.

    Castlevania becomes enjoyable. Now not only does it look good, it finally plays good. Almost perfect 30fps.

    Samurai Chronicles 3 plays better.

    MGS locks at 20fps (hardcoded). Less dips, loading times shortened by a lot.

    Ridge Racer 3D is smoother - this one might be placebo as a lot variables has to be taken into account (boost or no boost, how many racers on screen - boosting and drifting around a corner with 2,3 enemies on screen can create some dips)

    Nice to see people mention improvements since Luma3DS can just boot into Clock + Cache mode I just leave it like that, not really got any games to add.

    I FEEL like Fire Emblem Fates just plays that bit smoother but I could be crazy, at least the Level Up animation seems smoother.

    Without a doubt all the pokemons run way better with HANS and I also tried Cave story 3D but except for better loading times it didn't help

    Can confirm. I'd say that HANS is almost a necessity for Senran Kagura.

    Just a quick question. If I were to switch to Luma to be able to boot into overclocked mode, how much does it affect the battery life?
