This picture shows the BIOS for your motherboard:
In that picture, you should be able to turn off: "Advance Turbo 30" , "Intel Speedstep", and "Intel Turbo Boost"
In the next picture you should have "Power Saving Mode" set to disabled:
In the next picture, you should disable: "Enhanced Halt State (C1E)", "CPU C3", "CPU C6", "Package C State Support", "CPU THermal Throttling", "No Execute Memory Protection", if you don't use VMWARE, might as well turn off virtualization/vanderpool too.
In the next picture, the setting "IGPU Multi Monitor" looks fishy, I haven't seen anywhere in this BIOS yet to turn off the iGPU entirely? My Gigabyte UD5H has a clear setting to disable the integrated GPU. If you can't disable IGPU entirely, that may be a significant problem source for input lag:
In the next page, turn off "Onboard HD Audio", Onboard HDMI audio"
The next page, you need to disable the ASmedia SATA controller, unless you actually use it for some reason instead of the native Intel one. I would probably turn off SATA Aggressive Link Power Management too:
I assume the setting in the next picture called "ACPI HPET Table" is the HPET Timer, which you would want turned off if that's the case:
Other stuff to turn off: Intel Rapid Start Technology, Serial Port
