Out of the box performance is not a state of comparison in between when programs and files started to populate and run on your system. The best thing to manage is the maintenance of system performance and hardware.


For the software part :


Keep your computer safe online by Grinler.


:step1: Emphasis on other things from the tutorial link : Windows sytem should always be up to date including your drivers if necessary or when notified and your installed programs.


:step2: Uninstall bloatwares and remove unwanted programs installed. This includes downloaded programs bundled with software packages and toolbars during installation processes.

For the hardware part :


:step1: Maintain your system performance by checking your hardware temperature as related to dust and bunnies that the computer may collect overtime.

:step2: Do not overclock if not necessary or not part of your forte.

:step3: Always use a branded certified PSU.
