Yeah, I would be interested on the actual usefulness of this... would it be worth the process?
If anyone does this kind of stuff, please share the results!

IMO you really don't need to overclock a S4 dual core 1.5ghz processor. It just isn't worth the risk.

I would only really feel safe overclocking up to 1.7 GHz.

Tried over clocking it...drains battery even faster...running clean Rom 4.1...with 1.85 kernel...getting ~4600 on quadrant and decent battery life.

RootzWiki.com is better in my opinion. XDA is VERY, VERY cluttered.
