I’ve been looking around for a single decent guide for boosting FPS in CSGO, and finally found one – On YouTube, link at the bottom (if you prefer having things shown to you.)

So I’ve taken the liberty of summarizing it here, for easy reading.


  1. Set launch options:
    -console -tickrate 64 -high -threads 6 -fps_max 0 +cl_showfps 1 +cl_interp 0 +cl_interp_ratio 1 +rate 128000 +cl_updatedrate 128 +cl_cmdrate 128 +mat_queue_mode 2 +cl_forcepreload -freq 144 -refresh 144 1 -nod3d9ex -nojoy

    1. -threads should equal the amount of cores
    2. -freq & -refresh should equal your monitor update frequency in hertz, ie. 60 or 144
  2. In-game settings:
    1. Game -> Game:
      1. Enable Game Instructor Messages = No
      2. Max Acceptable Game Traffic Bandwidth = Unrestricted
    2. Audio -> Audio:
      1. Advanced 3D Audio Processing = No
    3. Video -> Video:
      1. Display Mode = Fullscreen
      2. Laptop Power Settings = Disabled
      3. Advanced Video -> All to lowest/disabled, except…
      4. Multicore Rendering = Enabled
  3. Open start menu and type ‘settings’ and open
    1. Go to ‘System’ -> ‘Focus assist’
    2. Set all to ‘Off’
  4. Delete temporary files
    1. Run (Win+R) and write ‘%temp%’ and press enter
    2. Select all (press Ctrl+A)
    3. Press Shift+Delete (press “Skip” for files that cannot be deleted)
    4. Repeat steps 1-3, replacing ‘%temp%’ with ‘temp’ and ‘prefetch’. Please note that you might be required to ellevate to administrator privileges in order to explore and delete files in these foldes
  5. Install Intelligent Standby List Cleaner (https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/intelligent_standby_list_cleaner.html)
    1. Settings:

      The list size is at least: 1024
      Free memory is lower than: 4096
      Start ISLC minimized and auto-Start monitoring: Checked
      Launch ISLC on user logon. (TaskScheduler): Checked
      Enable custom timer resolution: Checked
      Wanted timer resolution: 0.50
      ISLC polling Rate (ms): 10000
  6. Install ParkControl (https://bitsum.com/parkcontrol/)
    1. Settings:

      Power Profile: Ultimate Performance (or other “most performant possible” option)
      Set all sliders to to 100% and their radio buttons to ‘Disabled’
      Check all checkboxes (I personally unchecked “Show power plan change notifications” as I found those annoying)
      In Dynamix Boost Settings popup: Choose ‘High performance’ (I chose ‘Power saver’, for the environment ;-)) and inactive to 300 seconds
      Press “Apply”
  7. Every time you start CSGO, optionally open Task Manager (Right-click taskbar and choose ‘Task Manager’ or press Ctrl+Shift+Esc)
    1. Go to the ‘Details’ tab and locate and select the CSGO process, right click and choose ‘Set affinity’
    2. De-select (uncheck checkbox) ‘CPU 0’


I went from an 160 average to 400+ FPS at all times and all maps – Even during smoke spams when playing around with nadepractice.
