    Through regedit you can do all of the stuff (like enabling/disabling services, faster kill of processes...)

    I did some testing of Ramdisc.
    while the improvement isn't drastic, it's definatly worth taking a look at if your looking for your absolute best possible score.

    my test method was simple.

    I use the Anticheat version.
    run the test 4 times. then reboot.
    do it another 4 times.

    then I did the ramdisc install, and redid it all again.

    run the test 4 times. then reboot.
    do it another 4 times.

    the best scores, of 8 runs each, show up here.
    its a small difference, but well worth doing, cause it requires so little effort, and will give you a good chance at a better score then running from your hard drive alone.

    No, win2k is slower than XP and win2k3 in Super Pi. 2k is worth for Super Pi benches

    trying to get the most out of windows xp tweaking for super pi but I have a question...a simple one & maybe dumb, but here it is:
    how do I delete page files?
    While I'm asking, what's the optimum virtual memory setting for 1GB RAM?
    Lastly, where can I download BlackViper's registry patch? (site's under construction or something)
    Thanks for the help!

    Ok, I have tried MAXMEM so far in Win2k, WinXP and 2K3 server, on A64's, Dothans, and P4's. No matter what the combo is, it does absolutely nothing for me other than create a nice chunky page file on my hard drive. It doesn't help times in the slightest. Is there something I am doing wrong here?? Some other tweak associated with it that I'm not enabling?
