Even though the S4 Mini's dual-core processor running at 1.7GHz is good enough for pretty much anything, you can always boost it up a bit if you need more power from your phone.

overclock galaxy s4 mini

proxuser modified arco's AOSP based kernel a bit by adding some governors, I/O schedulers and overclocking it by adding it 2 extra frequencies; 1.8 and 1.9GHz. In order to be able to use this kernel without any issues, it is highly recommended that you flash it over a custom AOSP based rom such as CyanogenMod, Slim, Vanir, Carbon, etc.

Once you are on such a custom rom, you may download the zip file into your sdcard and flash it through recovery mode.

Before we go any further, I must warn you that overclocking can be considered to be quite dangerous for the CPU and battery. Just don't forget to give it some breaks if you are planning on using your CPU to the max as it may overheat it or damage your battery.
