    Actually Q4Wine grays out NICE value maybe it knows Windows app must not be trusted!

    Does this do the NICE values correctly? I could not tell any difference in terms of the priority the program runs.

    This would be more fun, but also a whole lot more expensive. Don't skip the part with the road test. Insane! Brother @Johnksss should trade in his Mercedes for one of these.

    Crazy! Impressive power, and seeing that MPH guage shoot up so fast was quite amazing. Definitely an American car suited to the States, too big for European roads and probably wouldn't go round a corner without a fight!

    Its actually reverse in Linux! 0 is default priority and more minus values ( I think -20 is the max for real time priority). I think you found that Q4wine won't change to -ve values.

    New Goal is achieved !! This time for tightening my poor ram set timing :D As you could see from my previous post.. I achieved earlier my ram timing is 14-17-17-38 but now.... my ram timing is...13-17-17-28-CR1 at 2733Mhz! ;) soo.. I did HCI memtest with (8 instances) [Thanks to @Robbo99999 advice] + memtest86 + TM5 tests.. all went good!
    Now benefits.. well.. nearly nothing changed on memory read & write bandwidth but.. Latency decreased ! the lower.. the better! :cool:

    I did my best to go further and tight it more but...it won't boot at all... nada :no: RAM is screaming for help :realmad::wacko::tears:

    Conclusion & Benefits:-
    -
    I have seen huge increase for minimum fps and avg fps on games really but non significant increases on max fps :)
    - Also Winrar & 7zip is more smoother and faster on extracting & reading
    - Excel sheets & PowerPoints & Office stuff also have positive performance
    - And a positive difference in booting performance :) Applications starting faster really :)

    My job is done..Now I can sleep better with a peace of mind.. :D:vbcool: got a free performance boost without paying a single penny :D but it is really time consuming & exhausting to revive my laptop from brick state every time through SPI Programmer :)

    I AM DONE... Peace Out! :hi:

    Hey, excellent results from your starting point of a stock configuration, and even more kudos for you by managing to get it done on a locked down laptop which makes it far more complicated than just typing in few numbers into a desktop BIOS! Yep, RAM overclocking & testing was the most time consuming part of any overclocking I have ever done - both on my laptop and on my desktop. On my laptop I had to use Typhoon Burner to write new XMP timings & frequencies (way back in year 2013 - it's in my sig under the spoiler), so I know some of the complications involved with trying to tweak laptops, which no doubt you experienced with yours!
