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 Task Manager (Right-click taskbar and choose ‘Task Manager’ or press Ctrl+Shift+Esc)
    1. Find the CSGO process, right-click and choose ‘Go to details’
    2. Right click highlighted and choose ‘Set affinity’
    3. De-select (uncheck checkbox) ‘CPU 0’
  4. Open start menu and type ‘settings’ and open
    1. Go to ‘System’ -> ‘Focus assist’
    2. Set all to ‘Off’
  5. Run (Win+R) and write ‘%temp%’ and press enter
    1. Select all (press Ctrl+A)
    2. Press Shift+Delete (press “Skip” for files that cannot be deleted)
  6. 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
  7. 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”


Optionally reboot, but otherwise just jump into CSGO and observe a significant FPS boost. I want from an 160 average to 400+ FPS at all times and all maps – Even during smoke spams when playing around with nadepractice.
