Windows 7: Cutting Services to Optimize Performance on an E6700

Cutting Services to Optimize Performance on an E6700

I have an Intel E6700 processor and it's starting to show it's age when gaming. (COD: Black Ops requires an E6600) Is there a way to limit the amount of resources being used by other programs and services when I want to play games?

I think AMD had a program beta that would temporarily shut down all but the essential programs and services but I don't think there's anything similar for Intel processors.

Thanks

It won't help. I've done it repeatedly and it doesn't change a thing. The only way you are going to get better performance is by updating your hardware. The only thing you should mess with is third-party software. All the built in Microsoft services do not interfere with your games.

Win7 is as lean as it can be without cutting into performance. All services not needed at startup are set on Manual Fast triggers.

Those of us who tried Vliting it during beta found that there is no performance to be gained back from cutting Auto services - it can only practically be trimmed down for size purposes (language and drivers) for netbooks.

Ultimate will default to the same as Basic on low-spec hardware.

The best approach to doing what you want is improving your hardware and assuring you have the cleanest possible install with absolutely no tweaking or optimization beyond what the OS has to offer itself - 3rd party tweaks will always come back to bite you in Win7.

Maybe you should switch your motherboard with a gigabyte brand or asus. I'm not sure about now, but I just recently upgraded from an Intel 865PERL and had a 3.40 GHz single-core processor. I couldn't overclock with it, and even the burn-in mode wasn't stable (then again, going from 3.40 to 3.54 wouldn't have changed things anyway).

If you get one of those you should be able to overclock to the 3GHz and that should help with performance, too.

I wasn't sure but this is more or less what I expected. Oh well, I was thinking I needed to upgrade my mobo, cpu and RAM soon anyway.

Come on Tax Return!
