    Hi all

    I thought my system was pretty well tweaked and setup. That is, until today. I was browsing the BFBC2 official forums and came across this thread.

    Examples of things I now know that I didn't before (and I'm not a newb at this):

    -HPET effect on system
    -how to reduce windows timer resolution and make things snappier
    -how to make intel's latest chipset inf utility actually INSTALL drivers for supported hardware
    -how to tweak multimedia class scheduler for games in vista/windows 7
    -best advanced settings for your network card for FPS gaming

    Seriously good info link. Try it!

    edit: what i like most about it is the links which justify why the tweaks are needed. check them out!

    Good tweaks, but is do not like this one:
    Not true for all platforms. See the sandybridge thread where those that disabled these features, and then re-enabled them at my suggestion, had more stable overclocks.


    It does say in some circumstances, so they've coverred thier butt there, but at the same time, it's something I personally will never suggest.

    yeah i didn't apply that tweak. Keep reading :)

    I think it's ideal for people who know what they are doing (i.e. TPU readers/members)

    Does the Intel Inf driver tip work for X68 motherboards?

    yes Helloworld. At least it applied for my P67 so I would assume so.

    edit: I know the mobo chipset is not mentioned in supported chipsets. Neither was mine. Still worked :)
