Need some help on my rig

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
okie so all the specs are listed in the system specs.....and now was wondering any way to make the computer faster ( I know its tough ) but unfortunately im poor and I really really need more ram so I was wondering how to compensate for that with CPU power ( a 3.52 ghz Allendale has tons right ?? )

although the ram is at 1100 mhz at 4-4-4-8 but was wondering any way...any way at all to speed things up ( besides reducing processes...you have no idea on how many I cut down on ) perhaps it would be too difficult but Im sure the pros here must have a way or trick up their sleeve somewhere ( I still owe a guy who lent me some cash for the badaxe but ive almost paid him back )

so help please ?

There's not a great deal more you can do I think...

Hardware options:
Overclock CPU.
Run RAM @ a 1:1 FSB/RAM ratio.
Lower RAM timings using extra voltage to stabilise.
Overclock Video Card GPU/VRAM.
Lower VRAM timings.
Volt-mod graphics card GPU and further o/c it.
Volt-mod motherboard/CPU and further o/c.
Buy a second HDD and run RAID0.
Turn off S.M.A.R.T monitoring on your HDD/s.
Increase the Amount of RAM you have.

Software Options:
Defrag your HDD/s.
Put your swap file on a second HDD.
Eliminate your swap file if you have enough RAM.
Defrag your swap file regularly if you have one.
Remove unneeded services and start-up programs.
Clean/Fix the Windows registry.
Defrag the Windows registry.
Use the latest hardware drivers.
Fully update Windows with patches.
Defrag/optimise your boot files.
Remove adware/spyware/viruses.
Make "optimising" Windows registry changes.

I know I've mentioned some options you've already done, but I was just listing the one's I know, "off-the-top of my head" .

I can't think of much more atm, but I'm not a "pro" as such. Maybe some other members will be able to offer more options..?

Highly-Annoyed

Dude. Your E6400 is at 3.52GHz thats nutty. It makes my E6300 look like some thing from the stone age again. Can i see a CPU-z validation of that Overclock? What cooling do you have?
