Open file manager (FX is preinstalled in ROC versions) and go to /system/data/NFS/ and edit with text editor : governor.txt – ondemand, mode.txt – 2 , scheduler.txt – deadline. Then restart the system. If you have SSD then noop may be better than deadline. [REF][GUIDE]Most up to date guide on CPU governors, I/O schedulers and more!
It is up to you how you want to set up your PC. More guide about these are available in [MODULE][NFS-INJECTOR] [Forcefulness/Energy Aware][ARCHER][V6.5]. Never update this module from Magisk. It is modded version for Phoenix OS only.
