    Optimization and tweaks how many more are out there


    If you know your network interface card has an onboard processor you can use this tweak to take the network load off of your main board processor which also gives you more cpu for programs,games etc



    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

    DisableTaskOffload

    0 = Use NIC Processor, 1 = Disable NIC Processor

    Theres short stroking your hard drive which if you find your hard drives sweet spot you can get some really good performance out of your mechanical hard drives the problem is that short stroking takes a lot of storage space.

    Thank you, you have just increased my HDD's performance by 30%. I wish I could give more than one time rep.

    I do not like SSDs, they do not increase FPS in games, just loading time, it does not really pay off.
    So I have bought HDDs, I have got 1TB simply because 500GB cost the same, but I hardly use it.

    Thank you for the rep :) im glad that i helped you. When it comes tweaks and optimizing i dont care much for menu show delay and stuff like that but i do know theres ways of turning stuff off that makes windows works harder than it needs to which causes resources to focus on the stuff that isnt needed when really windows needs like 50 on a fresh install instead of the what 100 to 200 processes and services it has i like to find just the barebone services and add the services that i think are important and add those to the barebone services that are still on and running. But there are tweaks out there that are able to turn off delays and turn on features that should of been on, i dont know about anyone else but i like a stable and quick computer but i can't afford the high end gaming computers, ssds are the way to go yes but not knowing how long the drive will lasg and making sure the drive isnt being written to and blah blah im not against ssds its just they seem scary in a round about way is all

    This tweak seems to work pretty good [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    OptimalLayout]
    EnableAutoLayout =1
    (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

    It is good that you are including tweaks here Smirk24 but, I found this report dated from 2010??

    7. TCP offloading

    Some of the tasks involved in sending data across your network can in many cases be carried out by the CPU on your network adapter, says another tweak, and enabling this will improve performance. Just go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters, create a new DWORD value called DisableTaskOffload and set it to 0.
    The problem here? Windows generally enables offloading automatically already. This Registry setting, as its name suggests, exists to allow you to turn the offloading feature off, for network troubleshooting. A Microsoft document on TCP/IP Registry settings confirms that its default setting is already 0, enabling offloading, and so manually adding the value yourself won't change anything.
    What's more, TCP Offloading may not always be a great idea. A recent blog post from one of Microsoft's support teams reported they'd spent hundreds of hours on cases involving offloading, and details one where the answer to a performance problem was to turn it off.

    You can use TCP Optimizer to optimize network properly, it is updated regularly, it includes documentation.

    Pendaws that is true but ive seen disabletaskoffload with a different value then 0 so no if the value is set to 0 then no changes need to be made

    It creates a backup upon first use, so you can always revert back, if something goes wrong.
