Game Fire is a suite of tools tool that aims to optimise your PC for performance.
The program uses multiple techniques to make this happen, including optimising system RAM, turning off unnecessary services and background processes, temporarily disabling CPU-intensive visual effects, and more.
A Games Defragment tool may also help by defragging the files and folders in your game folder (other files are left untouched, so it's much faster than a regular defrag).
While this sounds like it might be complicated, it really isn't. Essentially you just need to set up a "gaming profile", which tells Game Fire exactly which of these options you'd like to employ, and then it's able to apply all your chosen settings at a click.
Please note, the free build contains many settings and tools which are only available in the $24.95 version. This includes real-time performance optimisations, a host of tweaks in the Game "Adviser", internet and network tuneup, automatic services and third-party optimisations, and more.
