    Probably general i'd say as there are already guides up for OCing and i'm usre there are Memory Tweaking guides too, i'm not well versed in either of these, so if there are none, someone may make a guide and place it here if they wish

    "Using Diagnostic Mode"

    If you're unsure just what Diagnostic Mode is, or why we even use it when Benching with Realbench, or any other Benching tool.

    Basically "Diagnostic Mode" is useful if you're having Driver problems, as Diagnostic Mode boots with minimal services and drivers loaded...and since the OS is operating in a "lite" version of what you currently have set up & installed....it's not fat and bloated, which is why Diagnostic Mode is very valuable, unless you already have a "Stripped Down" OS that you bench with

    OK, if you've never ever changed the Bootup Method that Windows Uses...here is how

    1. Click your start bar(Windows 7) in the search box type "msconfig"(MS Config is where all important services, drivers and other junk is stored for boot time etc)


    2. On the main window, just click the circle next to Diagnostic Mode


    Please do NOT click Apply, this will change the bootup mode to "Selective Startup" which can load some programs at bootup and hinder your score, maybe a little, maybe a lot...depends on what you have installed. Just click OK and select Yes to reboot your system.

    Setting Priority level for RealBench
    The reason we change the priorities for programs, is to force them to become basically "on top" system resources are altered for your programs based on the priority level assigned to it, if we set the Priority on Realbench to "realtime" it gets the highest attention from the OS and all available resources are focused on RealBench.

    1. Start RealBench, but do not use it right now.
    2. Hit Control+Alt+Delete
    3. Select "Task Manager"
    4. On the "Processes Tab" scroll down until you see RealBench.exe
    5. Right Click on it and select "Select Priority"
    6. Click on "Realtime"
    7. Click OK.

    Killing Explorer.exe
    Let's be honest here, Windows is a heavy pig of an Operating System, no matter how great they claim to have made it, the fact remains that the OS is huge and heavy and consumes a crap-load of resources. The "Desktop" Explorer.exe can at times it self consume a lot of Memory and if you've got a small amount of RAM, chances are it's filling pretty quickly with Explorer and other Windows junk and services....so, we kill off Explorer.exe to free up some valuable resources.

    1. Ctrl+Alt+Delete if you're still not in task Manager
    2. Select Task Manager
    3. Processes tab, scroll down til you hit explorer.exe
    4. Right click on it and select "End Process" - or just click end process on the bottom right of the window


    5. Click End Process, in the next popup


    6. Do not freak out if you've never killed Explorer.exe before, here is how you bring it back after you've run however many runs of RealBench you wish

    7. Get a screenshot of your RealBench score first!!!
    8. Control+Alt+Delete
    9. Click on File
    10. Click New Task(Run)


    11. Type in Explorer.exe if it's not already in the next Popup and click OK


    12. Be amazed as your desktop magically comes back to life

    Running with a pagefile.
    Contrary to popular belief running with no pagefile is not faster. It can be the same as running with a pagefile or SLOWER. This happens due to how memory allocation is done. Programs can "reserve" memory in case they need it so that it can be immediately available. That memory stays unused until the application that requested it commits it.
    When you run with no pagefile this "unused but reserved" memory ends up taking a portion of your physical RAM. If a pagefile is enabled, this "reserved" memory ends up being allocated on the pagefile, leaving physical RAM free for things that can actually use it or system cache.

    In Realbench you will notice this. Run with a pagefile and without and you will see the difference. The pagefile size required depends on the amount of physical RAM and what is actually running and will run on the system. There are methods for calculating the optimal size of a pagefile (by checking the pack commit values on your maximum workload scenarios) but in the case of RB you can experiment with sizes

    1.Hit Windows Key+Break
    2.Click "Advanced System Settings"
    3.Click "Advanced" tab
    4.Under "Performance" click "Settings"
    5.Click "Advanced" tab"
    6.Under "Virtual memory" click "Change"
