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.

Here is a quick tutorial..

Its the basic Win7 tweaks, for scoring higher in real bench..


A little something for the newcomers..
1. Set boot to diagnostic mode= cmd/msconfig
2. Set power plan to high performace
3. Change the screen resolution ex. 800X600



Now i reboot and load a OC profile in bios
And returning to Win7..

1. Open ROG Realbench
2. Open task manager and set priority to realrime
3. Launch





Good luck..

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


After doing the "Killing Explorer.exe" .
Everything on my screen disappeared, or all of Icons were gone, nothing. nada.
Anyway, I added it back & everything was fixed.
