Getting rid of junk files
A. Clearing PC from temporary files.
Those files don’t do anything, but they can take up a considerable amount of space and can slow down your PC even if you still have a lot of space on your storage device(s).
It’s especially helpful for those who have installed Windows for a few months and never really cleared junk from PC properly. Alternatively, you can use some utility programs such as CCleaner, but you still need to double-check whether all of those junk files are removed from your PC. How to do that:
• Press Win + R to open the run box -> type “prefetch” -> remove all junk (some files may not be deleted, but it’s OK)
• Press Win + R -> type “%temp%” -> remove all junk (some files may not be deleted, but it’s OK)
B. Run disk cleanup
Yet again, there might be some programs that can do that for you, but if you don’t have one or you are not sure it removes the junk files – do the following.
• Go to windows search and type “disk cleanup.”
• Open the program
• Checkmark every file category that’s available and press OK
Maximization of power usage
• If you, for some reason, don’t want to use BHP, go to Power Option in Windows Control Panel and set it to High Performance. This will allow your CPU to use as much power as possible.
• Turn off C-states in BIOS*
This one is highly optional, and I don’t recommend anyone doing that unless you know what you are doing! For example, for some motherboards, not all C-states need to be turned off. C-states are the mechanisms that your motherboard uses to save energy. When C-states are turned off, the CPU cannot be bottlenecked by your motherboard’s lack of power input—disabling of C-states works very well with the High-Performance power mode described above.
