    Gaming Performance Tweaks

    I reached the 40000 characters long limit for this post, so I have to split it in two.

    BIOS

    Disable High Precision Event Timer (HPET)

    Disable CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E), EIST (SpeedStep) & Cool'n'Quiet

    Disable Intel Hyperthreading
    This is a controversial tweak with some conflicting results. Keeping Hyperthreading enabled and disabling Core Parking / optimizing Power Management (see Windows section below) is probably a lot more beneficial.

    Set Performance Enhance/Mode to higher than Standard for faster memory timings

    Set Robust Graphic Booster / PEG Link higher than Auto

    Set CPU PLL Voltage to the most conservative option (Normal)
    This will improve your overclock reliability. More doesn't traduce to better for this setting.

    CPU/PCI-E Clock Drive, CPU/MCH Clock Skew: keep them to the lowest possible (lower is better)

    I won't touch more about overclocking, the web is full of ressources on the topic. Maybe the best community on it is here: Overclock.net - Overclocking.net.

    Disable integrated audio device if you use an add-on soundcard

    Disable all unused integrated peripherals (Network, Serial, Parallel Ports, etc.)

    Drivers

    Apply all latest drivers for your hardware: Station-Drivers: le site de drivers, bios, firmwares avec un forum d'aide.

    TwL's AMD Catalyst modified drivers
    Latest official AMD Catalyst drivers
    Latest AMD Catalyst Application Profiles

    Remove AMD CCC.exe from automatic startup and/or kill process CCC.exe & MOM.exe before gaming (single card & CrossFireX)

    AMD improved image quality settings you may apply with minimal performance loss:
    • Anti-Aliasing Mode> Enhance application settings
    • Anti-Aliasing Mode> Morphological filtering
    • Anti-Aliasing Filter> Edge-detect
    • Texture Filtering Quality> High Quality
    • Adaptive Anti-Aliasing> Quality> Method Super-sampling> Enabled

    Check your LCD monitor (physical) settings for best pixel response times, ensure you have a good overdrive technology

    Enabling AMD LCD Overdrive can reduce input lag on certain LCD panels
    (Even if preview image fail to load, you can still enable overdrive, just click cancel for preview)
    Latest NVIDIA Drivers Downloads

    Go into your control panel and uninstall NVIDIA Stereoscopic 3D driver, you should get a FPS increase

    NVIDIA improved image quality settings you may apply with minimal performance loss:
    • Antialiasing - Transparency> Supersampling
    • Maximum Pre-Rendered Frames> 0 (minimizing first person shooters visual latency, optimizing hit registration)
    • Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration> Single display performance mode (if only one screen)
    • Texture filtering - Quality> High quality
    • Threaded optimization> On

    Disable unused audio devices (like ATI HDMI) in Device Manager

    Configure Playback/Recording devices with a right-click to the Volume Mixer, then configure audio card specific tray icon.

    Always select 2/2.1 Speakers for your headphones if you want full dynamic range.

    Reduce your audio sample rate to 16 bit, 48000 Hz to improve network to cpu prioritization and to reduce DPC latency.

    Rerun Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) after updating drivers, changing hardwares or overclocking:
    • Open a command prompt, type "winsat formal -restart clean"
    Windows

    Keep your Windows up-to-date

    An update is available for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2 which provides new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)

    To successfully install Win7 SP1, if you get errors, you may need this:
    System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821)
    System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x86-based Systems (KB947821)

    Ensure your system files aren't corrupt by using System File Checker
    Start Menu> Run> Open a Command Prompt, type "cmd"> then type "sfc /scannow". Reboot when finished.

    Disable Core Parking Windows 7 Tweak may improve performance
    You can show those hidden processor performance settings in your Control Panel\System and Security\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings\Advanced Power Options this way:
    • First if you applied above registry edit already, set the ValueMax again to it original value: 00000064, this is REQUIRED for the current solution to work.
    • Now re-open regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00
    • Export a copy of this selected branch as safeguard
    • Navigate the subkeys, switch the "Attribute" value from 1 to 0 for every subkey you want to appear in Advanced Power Options.
    • The key ones you probably want to view there are:
    • 0cc5b647-c1df-4637-891a-dec35c318583 "Processor performance core parking min cores" SET IT TO 100% so no cores will park.
    • 3b04d4fd-1cc7-4f23-ab1c-d1337819c4bb "Allow Throttle States" Off
    Processor Power Management in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 docx should be read before finicking too much with those hidden settings. Additional infos.
    I uploaded for you guys the latest pwrtest.exe from Windows Driver Kit Version 7.1.0 so you can check your own cpu spec with the command "pwrtest /info:all": Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
    A last warning: don't disable Processor Idle, this will only increase your cpu temperature, wear & tear and energy bill without performance gain.

    Turn Off Search Indexer

    Turn off Remote Differential Compression
    Start › Control panel › programs › turn windows features on or off › uncheck Remote Differential Compression › ok
    This makes file transfers (copy, move) faster by turning off “Remote Differential Compression” (RDC). Copying a 1.91 GB folder from the main HDD to a folder on an external USB drive resulting in with RDC turned on: 3:23 - three minutes and 23 seconds. With RDC turned off: 2:25 – two minutes and 25 seconds.

    Windows Features
    Control Panel> Programs> Programs and Features> Turn Windows features on or off
    You can turn off everything EXCEPT:
    • Windows Media Player/Center (if you use it)
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 (even if you installed .Net 4, you still need it)
    • Windows Fax and Scan (if you use it)
    • Windows Search (Disabled in Services below, turning it off here is bad idea, it remove search window in explorer)
    Disable the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program

    You can edit other task categories with it if needed.

    Remove Multimedia Class Scheduler Service from Windows Audio Service (AudioSrv) dependencies so you could stop and disable MMCSS completely

    Stop non-essential services with the help of SMART (Service Management And RealEasy Tweaking) Utility v2.0
    Consult Black Viper's Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations to know more what is best for you.
    Personally I apply SMART Advanced Tweaks because I don't share files via network between my computers (I use eSata HDD and USB Flash drives).
    Then I edit all services not keep Automatic Startup by SMART as Manual, EXCEPT:
    • Multimedia Class Scheduler Disabled
    • Remote Registry Disabled

    If you don't mind about Aero, Desktop Window Manager Session Manager stopped/disabled give an impressive snappiness feeling to 2D (desktop) and mouse movement.

    Stop Microsoft Antimalware Service if you use the excellent Microsoft Security Essentials as anti-virus before entering a game. Even with real-time protection turned off, the service manage to interfere/scan periodically causing choppiness and important fps drops.

    Disable Windows Defender, type "defender" in Start Menu search window to find it

    Disable anti-virus before gaming, some anti-virus cause high DPC latency

    Stop any services or processes associated to other non-essential applications before gaming

    Disable Windows Firewall if you are behind a router

    Network

    Get a router compatible with Tomato USB firmware, Toastman's Collection highly recommended! (Best router is Asus RT-N16)

    Disable "Inbound Layer 7" in your router.
    Layer 7 filtering or shaping is identifying traffic at layer 7 (Application Layer) of the OSI model. Instead of shaping/filtering based on the port and source/destination, you are identifying a stream based on its contents. This is also sometimes called deep packet inspection since it works by looking into the contents of the packets not just the headers. If you're concerned about performance: IPP2P and especially L7 are slower than simple IP, MAC or port matches. L7 can't cope well with encrypted P2P traffic in background while gaming.

    Enable SYN cookies in your router

    If you look into Performance Monitor (Start Menu> Search), you'll see some IPv6 interfaces hooked to your real running network adapter(s).
    Disable IPv6 tunnel adapter & interfaces

    By the way, if Performance Monitor report you some performance counters are disabled, open a Command Prompt (Start Menu> Run> type "cmd" or Start Menu> Search type "cmd"), type "lodctr /r" to refresh/re-enable them all.

    Disable unused network adapters and IPv6 related interfaces in Device Manager, tick "Show hidden device" in Device Manager View tab to show them all
    Disable all ISATAP, 6to4 and Teredo Tunneling interfaces

    Go to your network adapter properties, disable Flow Control and Interrupt Moderation

    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center> Connection> Properties: disable TCP/IPv6 to fix lag spikes, disable everything except TCP/IPv4 if you don't share with other LAN computers

    Apply the SG Vista TCP/IP Patch
    Detailed article: SpeedGuide.net :: Windows 7, Vista, 2008 Tweaks

    Apply the SG TCP Optimizer
    • You should use optimal settings + TcpAckFrequency=1, TcpNoDelay=1
    • DO NOT activate LargeSystemCache, you may experience a severe, random decrease in performance and random burst of lag
    • ecncapability=disabled or you won't be able to log into EA Online

    Disable Nagle's algorithm (TcpNoDelay, TcpAckFrequency), alternative tool
    • Disabling "nagling" allows for very small packets to be transferred immediately without delay. Note that disabling Nagle's algorithm is only recommended for some games, and it may have negative impact on file transfers/throughput
    Softwares

    Maximize your Windows timer resolution with Timer Resolution (free v1.2 work for Vista & Win7 too).
    Just keeping this little application open in the background will reduce DPC latency, improve responsiveness.

    Increases system responsiveness and helps to prevents system stalls with Process Lasso. Gaming Mode highly recommended!

    Alternatively you can manually edit and save processes priority with Prio - Process Priority Saver and boost foreground application AboveNormal with TopWinPrio.

    Defrag your HDDs with UltimateDefrag.
    Best defragger around BY LARGE, you can manually select which files/folders to place on HDD outer rings (fastest) or leave the program do an awesome job automatically with Last Access Time Stamp enabled.

    Prevent fragmentation and reduce disk accesses (I/Os) in real-time with Diskeeper 2011 Pro Premier IntelliWrite, I-FAAST & HyperFast.
    I use both, Diskeeper for 24/7 real-time management of my workstation and UltimateDefrag for optimal files placement of my Steam/games eSata portable HDD!

    How to deal with suspicious files, recovering the goods without getting the s**t
    Test files or compressed files containers (rar, zip) with online multi-engines antivirus scanners (best analysis):
    Try to disinfect the file(s) with Dr.Web CureIt!
    Run suspicious files sandboxed with Sandboxie. Delete your sandbox content immediately after use.

    Complete PunkBuster Updating
    Fix a lot of CTD (crash to desktop), freeze/hard lock-up and others issues
    • Uninstall PunkBuster Service with latest PunkBuster Service Setup (pbsvc.exe)
    • Go to your game folder, locate the "pb" folder
    • Delete the content of the "pb" folder but DO NOT delete the folder itself
    • In Windows Vista & 7, PunkBuster copies files from the game PB folder to another commonly located at C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\<Game>\pb\
    • However PB Setup updates the files located in the game PB folder by default and sometimes fails to copy the updated files
    • Delete the content of the "pb" folder in C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\<Game>\pb\
    • Just change <Game> to the game you are having issues with (ex BC2)
    • Re-Install PunkBuster Service with latest PunkBuster Service Setup (pbsvc.exe)
    • Now you can manually update the PB folders using PBSetup (pbsetup.exe)
    Run PunkBuster as an Administrator
    • Start a game using PunkBuster
    • Press Ctrl-Alt-Del> Start Task Manager> right-click process PnkBstrA.exe> Properties> Compatibility> Change settings for all users> tick "Run this program as an administrator"> Ok
    • Repeat the same for PnkBstrB.exe

    Reduce your audio sample rate to 16 bit, 44100 Hz or 48000 Hz to improve network to cpu prioritization.

    could to detail a little more on that? (i mean, why is that way) and what's the bad-effect of that? (if there is one)

    Having tried what he suggested with the TCP / IP settings, I can confirm my SpeedTests results fell in half.

    You won't hear the difference, but you may leave it 24 bit 96k if you want.

    Optimizing is about setting a lot of little things that change sometime not much.

    Yes disabling Nagle's algorithm improve latency for some games but reduce overall throughput. Go back to TcpAckFrequency=0, TcpNoDelay=0 if you want your full speed.

    It's not as bad SpeedTest report it, I get the same result that you but

    TcpAckFrequency=0, TcpNoDelay=0 i get 500KB/s with a "real" download.

    TcpAckFrequency=1, TcpNoDelay=1 i get 450KB/s with a "real" download.

    So you lose 10% speed "in real life".

    done xP:

    Media ping = average ping
    Media rutas = average routing (i guess its the time spent of stabilishing conection)
    Velocidad descarga/subida = Download/upload speed.

    ping average was between 120 and 130 (usually around 126)

    Now its usually around 118-120

    Routing its almost the same (did more than the ones @ screen).

    Download speed was average 8300kbps and now its 7800kbps. Upload speed its the same.

    altho i restored nagle alg. (tcp nodelay and ackfreq to defaults) and now im getting that download speed... I guess im sync at less speed that other days.


    i guess the speedtest im using doesnt get affected by that algorithm

    now i get back to 8xxx speeds

    bcs ping its also back to 12x

    Some games need it, softwares section is just a commodity, essential ones that almost anyone should have for a complete general/gamer system.
