Objective: Increase score in 3DMark with the same overclock. Tweaks made in windows and bios. Everything has been tested on Windows 8 Pro 64 Bits with the same clock in afterburner (sli) forever. The source of all is the following google searches and tests. It is intended for users like me who do not want to have only one partition with windows installed with nothing and with all the services disabled.<br><br><b>Driver Tests:</b>

<a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>Warning: Spoiler!</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden">3DMark is a program for performance measurement and the graphic CPU at the end of a score test is made, the higher the score the better, particularly for those who participates in HWbot.org. More information about 3DMark access the site: <a href="http://www.3dmark.com/" target="_blank">http://www.3dmark.com/</a>. Having the higher score does not mean having a stable system. This is not a topic about overclocking and stability.<br><br>
What we need for now: 3DMark, Nvidia Inspector, PowerMizer Switch, WinTimerTester 1.1 or TimerTiming, regedit, bcdedit, your windows with all updates, video driver to the latest version as well as all the drivers required for the operation of windows and lots of willingness to test each tweak. The link to the program will be given in tips. The version used is purchased on steam.<br><br>
* I recommend creating a restore point, check out this link if you do not know how to do: <a href="http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4690-restore-point-create-windows-8-a.html" target="_blank">http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4690-restore-point-create-windows-8-a.html</a><br><br>
* Please have an iso ready to be installed in pen-driver if necessary re-install windows. (<a href="http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2299-clean-install-windows-8-a.html" target="_blank">Http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2299-clean-install-windows-8-a.html</a>)</div>

There are two ways to do the regedit (windows registry) and a program that does this. I use the program that is easier.<br><br><b>2.2.1.</b> By regedit<br><br>
Press windows + r keyboard. Type regedit and press enter.<br>
Navigate here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Video<br>
You will find several folders with numbers, look inside them that has number 000 that has more values ​​within:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290289/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1290289" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290289/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 181px"></a><br>

<br><b>2.3.</b> BCEdit and HPET - Only for motherboards with support for 64bit Windows and HPET.<br><a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>Warning: Spoiler!</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden">According to Microsoft Bcdedit:<br>
Data files (BCD) boot configuration provide storage that is used to describe boot applications and boot application settings. The objects and elements in the store effectively replace Boot. ini.<br><br>
BCDEdit is a command line tool for managing BCD stores. Can be used for various purposes, including creating new stores, modifying existing stores, adding boot menu parameters and so on.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc731662%25" target="_blank">http://technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc731662%</a> 28v = WS.10% 29.aspx)<br><br>
HPET - High Precision Event Timer:<br>
The High Precision Event Timer is a hardware timer used in personal computers. It was developed jointly by Intel and Microsoft and Has Been Incorporated in PC chipsets since circa 2005.<br>
An HPET chip Consists of a 64-bit up-counter (main counter) counting at a frequency of at least 10 MHz, and a set of (at least 3, up to 256) comparators. These comparators are 32 - or 64-bit wide. The HPET is programmed via a memory mapped I / O window that is discoverable via ACPI. The HPET circuit in modern PCs is integrated into the southbridge chip.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Precision_Event_Timer" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Precision_Event_Timer</a>)<br><br>
Theoretically this tip gives a boost in the whole machine.<br><b><br>
2.3.1.</b> First of all make a backup of the settings bcdedit.<br>
Open CMD as board administrator -> Windows key + x, click Command Prompt (Admin), type: bcdedit / export C: \ BACKUP_bcdedit hit enter. A file was saved with the name given in C: \.<br>
If you do only using the restore point or re-installing windows (experience).<br><br>
To restore just do the same procedure with the command: bcdedit / import C: \ BACKUP_bcdedit.<br><br><b>2.3.2.</b> Changing settings<br><br>
What we will do is change the QueryPerfomanceFrequency windows.<br>
Retrieves the frequency of the high-resolution performance counter, if one exists. The frequency can not change while the system is running.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/windows/desktop/ms644905%25" target="_blank">http://msdn.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/windows/desktop/ms644905%</a> 28v = VS.85% 29.aspx)<br>
As I understand it, would be a function that returns the time it takes for the CPU to calculate an operation. More or less. The smaller the better.<br><br>
This tip can be used to improve performance in games, even resolves some lockups in games.<br>

If not with this number:<br><br>
To begin to change, Open CMD as board administrator -> Windows key + x, click Command Prompt (Admin), type: bcdedit / set useplatformclock true, hit enter and reboot.<br><br>
Upon reboot, go into your BIOS and activate HPET function on ASRock this function is called ACPI HPET Table:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290295/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1290295" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290295/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>

I have 2 sc 670 4gb cards and I just did the Inspector tweaks not the other one's in the list<br><br>
and my score dropped from 17000 to 15000 and had a lot of flickering</div>
</div>
<br>
Sorry, i told to test what is the best for you.<img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

So the Inspector tweaks that you show wont work on some pc's<br><br>
and is the for windows 7 I am on windows 8<br><br>
I thought my cpu or card were o/c to much<br>
but I set it all back to default and 3dmark 2013 still go wacko<br><br>
with the Inspector tweaks<br><br>
I have to be doing some thing wrong<br><br>
and I am on the new beta NVidia drivers

It worked for me! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> but there were some random flickering during the second test.<br><br>

HPET - High Precision Event Timer:<br>
The High Precision Event Timer is a hardware timer used in personal computers. It was developed jointly by Intel and Microsoft and Has Been Incorporated in PC chipsets since circa 2005.<br>
An HPET chip Consists of a 64-bit up-counter (main counter) counting at a frequency of at least 10 MHz, and a set of (at least 3, up to 256) comparators. These comparators are 32 - or 64-bit wide. The HPET is programmed via a memory mapped I / O window that is discoverable via ACPI. The HPET circuit in modern PCs is integrated into the southbridge chip.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Precision_Event_Timer" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Precision_Event_Timer</a>)<br><br>
Theoretically this tip gives a boost in the whole machine.<br><b><br>
2.3.1.</b> First of all make a backup of the settings bcdedit.<br>
Open CMD as board administrator -> Windows key + x, click Command Prompt (Admin), type: bcdedit / export C: \ BACKUP_bcdedit hit enter. A file was saved with the name given in C: \.<br>
If you do only using the restore point or re-installing windows (experience).<br><br>
To restore just do the same procedure with the command: bcdedit / import C: \ BACKUP_bcdedit.<br><br><b>2.3.2.</b> Changing settings<br><br>
What we will do is change the QueryPerfomanceFrequency windows.<br>
Retrieves the frequency of the high-resolution performance counter, if one exists. The frequency can not change while the system is running.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/windows/desktop/ms644905%25" target="_blank">http://msdn.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/windows/desktop/ms644905%</a> 28v = VS.85% 29.aspx)<br>
As I understand it, would be a function that returns the time it takes for the CPU to calculate an operation. More or less. The smaller the better.<br><br>
This tip can be used to improve performance in games, even resolves some lockups in games.<br>
(Ref: <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee417693%25" target="_blank">http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee417693%</a> 28VS.85% 29.aspx)<br><br>
Programs to measure it:<br>
TimerTimming nvidia: <a href="https://developer.nvidia.com/content/timer-function-performance" target="_blank">https://developer.nvidia.com/content/timer-function-performance</a><br>
WinTimerTester 1.1: <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/?xzo9n84d8lze9nb" target="_blank">http://www.mediafire.com/?xzo9n84d8lze9nb</a><br><br>
WinTimerTester Download the file, run it as Administrator and make sure the QueryPerfomanceFrequency is as below:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290293/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1290293" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290293/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 283px; height: 339px"></a><br><br>
If not with this number:<br><br>
To begin to change, Open CMD as board administrator -> Windows key + x, click Command Prompt (Admin), type: bcdedit / set useplatformclock true, hit enter and reboot.<br><br>
Upon reboot, go into your BIOS and activate HPET function on ASRock this function is called ACPI HPET Table:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290295/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1290295" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1290295/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
After system initialization, download the file and check that the WinTimerTester QueryPerfomanceFrequency now with a number 14.xxxxx Mhz, as in the first picture.</div>
</div>
</div>
<br>
I might have gone and goofed this part up.<br><br>
When I ran the WinTimerTester it gave me a value of 3.XXXXXXXX - According to the guide we were aiming for a 14.XXXXXXXX - Did what the guide said, rebooted - Activated HPET (Well, it was already on - Default apparently) and when booting into Windows I checked the settings and it was according to the guide.<br><br>
Good.<br><br>
However, upon closer reading we are aiming towards a LOWER number, meaning my 3.XXXXXXX was actully better ?<br><br>
Found this:<br><br><i><b>commands:<br><br><br>
bcdedit /set useplatformclock true (then reboot) enable HPET<br>
bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock (then reboot) disable HPET<br><br>
TSC+LAPICs (useplatformclock false)*<br>
LAPICs (useplatformclock true)**<br>
TSC+HPET (useplatformclock false)***<br>
HPET (useplatformclock true)****<br><br>
* Windows default.<br><br>
**platformclock=true and HPET disabled in BIOS will default to LAPICs, which is good compared to TSC, but doesn't not have not so high resolution and so low DPC latency as HPET.<br><br>
*** Windows default with HPET enabled in BIOS.<br><br>
**** HPET enabled in BIOS and in OS.</b></i><br><br>
Guess it is just one of those things you need to play around with and see where it takes the user.<br><br>
Word of warning though, do <b>*NOT*</b> overclock from within Windows when you run this - The Timer is synchronized upon post with you clock speed - Windows 7 is now based on the clock speed of the processor. If you overclock in the bios and then boot up, this timer is calibrated and will work 100% correctly. If you use SetFSB or a similar program and you change the bus speed from within Windows, you have now just screwed up this very important timing mechanism. The number of applications that can choke after you do this is surprising, especially games.<br><br>

v0.2 - (03/04/2013)<br>
Nvidia 314.07 are the best to 3DMark 11.<br>
Nvidia 314.14 and 314.09 not good in 3DMark 11 only 3DMark 13 (FireStriker).<br>
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bits give more score than Windows 7 Pro 64 bits and Windows 8 Pro 64 Bits.<br>
3DMark 11 1.0 better then new.<br>
Added shorchut desktop to clear memory (3.1).<br>
IRQPriority tip don't work.

Hey Julio. First of all, great guide <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
Just wanted to say though, that maybe you could add the optimizations that...I believe DJRamses, came up with and posted in the Lightning thread. You might have to PM him if you can't find the post, as it was a while ago. But he had a few simple edits in Inspector that really brought up scores a decent amount for such simple changes. Just a suggestion <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Just a question on the: 2.2. PowerMizer<br><br>
I don't have these values in the registry, is there a reason to run this then? I'd say nope but figure I ask.

You need to test.<br><br>
"<b>Generally this option is available in notebook to save the battery</b>, but you can apply this on dekstop. According to my test without it my sli usage was 97% in both GPU for 3DMark after rose to 99%."

Alright thanks, well it seems to help to an extent. Previously I had a problem where either one of the cards didn't ramp up to 98% etc until little in either of the GPU tests, always causing lowering of the score. This has now changed in that they ramp up - however, I'm seeing it dip here and there from that 98% etc down to 80% at times during test.<br><br>
It almost looks like throttling, but isn't as core stays where it should be, temps are <50 degrees and power is under target level.
