    I would suggest just using something like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision OCX or w/e, anything like that will help you monitor the framerate and temperature of your GPU and CPU. It's not too difficult to tweak things or watch guides on YT on how to adjust your PC's settings and get a bit more performance.

    It's a gimmick, you can not get more speed of the CPU because when the temperature of CPU rises it gets slower. I burnt few CPUs in my life time using similar software. Get faster computer is the solution, not the disabling or enabling background drivers or applications.

    Martin,

    "you can not get more speed of the CPU because when the temperature of CPU rises it gets slower."

    Yes, a CPU will throttle down if temps start to get close to a dangerous level, but there are all sorts of 3rd party CPU coolers that outperform what comes with the CPU in the box, and the overclocking community uses them.

    "I burnt few CPUs in my life time using similar software. "

    Smart Game Booster Pro only advertises that it lets you overclock the GPU. If you have a separate graphics card, overclocking the GPU is fairly common -- many models come with the GPU overclocked right out of the box. Overclocking a GPU that's part of the CPU is another story.

    "Get faster computer is the solution, not the disabling or enabling background drivers or applications."

    It depends... You're not going to get the same performance as a more expensive, higher end CPU, no matter what you do. But you can kill the performance of any CPU if you have too many CPU intensive processes running. It's just common sense that if the CPU is already being used at 25% of its capacity, you only have 75% left to run your games. Smart Game Booster Pro *might* be able to noticeably help performance, or not, by reducing the amount of CPU used by background tasks... not all processes can be stopped, and going from .7 to .5 % usage isn't going to have near the effect of dropping from 10% to 1 or 2 %. It really depends on what processes are running and how much CPU horsepower they drain.

    -- gimmick ( noun ) 1910, American English, perhaps an alteration of gimcrack, flimsy or poorly made but deceptively attractive, a cheap and showy ornament; a knickknack, or an anagram of magic, a piece of magicians' apparatus, a trick or device intended to attract attention, publicity, or business.

Perhaps an alteration of Middle English gibecrake, the name of some kind of ornament on wooden furniture (mid-14c.), which is perhaps from Old French giber "to rattle, shake" + some special sense of Middle English crak "sharp noise, crack." In 18c.-19c. gimcrack also could mean "person who has a turn for

    No, it's not by Microsoft or Intel.

    This actually does optimize our computers.

    I use this software to optimize my computers, and I'm happy with more responsiveness and smoother performance on demand ... even though all settings can be manually accomplished, somewhat arduously.

    Check out their website for a broader explanation of what it does, and great tips and suggestions on more stuff we can do to optimize our computers - including additional fans and other additional cooling tips.

    All my computers run their hard drives at 88° F or less, all chips at 175° F or less ( I'm working on lowering that, most are closer to 100° F - I don't like the thought of frying anything nearby even if the chip itself survives ).

    At room temperature, our gear can last a long time.

    And peak performance, too?

    Try it, you may like it.

    Virtually identical to FREE WiseCleaner Game Booster ( by Lespeed Technology Ltd ), SmartGamegooster/PCGameBooster is by Chengdu Zhagu Technology Co Ltd, perhaps they cross subcontract, or are the same company.

    These do 4 things:

    1. Offer system tweaks ( DNS lag and menu speed and such, suggests services and programs to turn off, power settings, such as processor at 100% all the time, no throttling )

    2. Checks and maybe updates video and audio drivers.

    3. Defrags the hard drive.

    4. When gaming, toggles OFF choices of TSRs terminate and stay resident programs that may then free up resources when playing a game, then turning them back on after.

    This also has popups that say things like:

    - overheating ( but no offering to resolve, such as throttle processor or increase fan speed )

    - memory low, click to optimise ( caution, it auto-kills some stuff, like a web browser that is not your default browser ).

    I like it, but only use it for tweaks, then kill it.

    Is it worth $20 ... to you?

    Just a quick question, I play several online games, that are not installed on my PC, will this help optimize these as well?

    Reply   |   Comment by Paul Hotchkiss  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

    In response to [ Paul Hotchkiss ] "... online games not installed on my PC, will this help optimize these as well? ..."

    Yes, by making sure
    1 - your system settings are for performance not battery-saving or heat-reducing or pretty,
    2 - your video and audio drivers are current,
    3 - defragging your drive so the web caches without fragmentation
    4 - by killing unnecessary and background programs.

    Caution, if you play your online game using a browser that is not your default browser, this may kill that browser, so you have to adjust the default settings to keep your special gaming browser alive.

    Everything this does we can also do manually.

    This automates all of the above.

    There are FREE programs that do similar, so compare.

    Their web pages describes:
    One-click Game Booster
    Overclock
    Temperature Monitor
    Game Launch
    System optimization
    Disk Defrag
    Driver Update
    Record Games

    Have a look.

    Is it worth $20 ... to you? ( after 6 month free? )

    Peter Blaise, and you missed "and your cooling system can handle the extra heat of an overclocked GPU and CPU"

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    Nimit Muni, not quite true, it all depends upon the online game if it uses GPU acceleration in the game code overclocking the GPU *may* improve play if there was anything sub-par with the default hardware performance. Same goes for CPU processing if the local CPU is sub-par performance wise overclocking the CPU may improve the play experience but only if overclocking is possible to do safely and reliably with the given system hardware. IF the systems default hardware (CPU+GPU and storage) is more than adequate as standard then overclocking of either or both CPU or GPU will produce no improvement in play but might shorten hardware life through electrical and thermal stresses. Online games can use a variety of technologies some use OpenGL and OpenCL others do not.

    In response to [ TK ] "... "and your cooling system can handle the extra heat of an overclocked GPU and CPU" ..."

    AND the SmartGameBooster website also has specific advice on fans, chip grease, and so on - a worthy references regardless of using their software or not.

    As well as this software's HUD Heads Up Display of temperature.

    I find this program VERY similar to FREE WiseCleaner Game Booster EXCEPT this software adds a few features of overclocking and recording and other refinements.

    I wonder if there is a game-boosting programmer's toolkit going around China and we will see more of these look-alikes, each with their own company-specific additions, special features and special benefits.

    And in prior GOTD pages I have recommended to everyone to put supplemental cooling fans all over their gear, regardless of gaming.

    Peter Blaise, I agree that patience can save alot of money and effort with computing. My understanding is that the key to system life is consistent system temperature well below the rated temperature of any component whether that be a chip or an electrolytic capacitor. The reason I say "consistentent" is that bar drying out electrolytics and smoking resistors diodes and transistors and chips the remaining failure cause is mechanical stress from movement and significant variations in temperature cause changes in component and motherboard dimensions as I'm sure you learned in physics and with enough expansion/contraction cycles material fatique will set in and cause failures, usually noticed as a fractured solder joint but can happen internally to the gold link wires between contact pad and chip.

    Yup, I was always shocked - SHOCKED - by kid's fresh out of engineering school who claimed the new chips they were designing can survive at 240° F, totally unaware in their naivete that everything else in the system around that hot chip is getting fried to death.

    Supplemental cooling fans, Caig Cromolyn DeOxIt on all connections, and check temp readouts frequently.

    But remember IBM interleaving 10 MB MFM drives at 5:1 or 6:1, then Steve Gibson getting the 20 MB Seagate on 2:7 RLL as 30 MB drive interleaved 1:1? We thought we were flying!

    Same with some of these game tweaks, where we can smooth a jittery video, and a supplemental cooling fan can keep it all copacetic.

    It's all cool.

    Literally.

    Installed on a I7-8550U laptop. Installation and registration was simple.(readme file) Added CPUz and ran benchmark. There was no difference in the processor score. Actually, it was a few point lower with Smart Game Booster running. But it does a quick and easy job of stopping running processes so gaming could possibly be better.
