Anyone know that post either on here or MWO or somewhere, I think MWO that had a guide to making some registry edits for ping and also calling up your ISP to request a change to something?

Really you arent going to be able to do anything that affects your ping a great deal, however you can try by editing you MTU guide below.

As far as your ISP if you are with IINET you can change your profile to "GAMER"
Otherwise the key thing you want to ask your ISP is to turn of Interleaving on your connection,
(Interleaving makes a connection more stable however it increases latency)
By doing that you are still only talking a 5ms difference.

In a nutshell there is only so much you can do to improve latency however it doesnt hurt to try for a few ms difference

The post I was reading had people reporting on differences of 30-50 ... I do find that hard to believe and if true I would still feel its more cosmetic than actual.

Yeh 30-50 would have to be like a planetary alignment kind of situation.
So many ohter factors come into play. I've played with various settings over the last decade or so and only ever achieve a max of ~10 savings to various servers. I have heard of eastern coast people getting a better result, as well naturally their latency is lower to begin with.

One thing to remember all these steps to lower your latency will of course lower your throughput, so your downloads will be marginally slower, hence why I don't bother anymore as to save 8ms i went from 3.5mb down to 3.2 and that wasnt worth it

One of the best analogies I have ever read to do with playing with MTU size to reduce packet size and hence affecting pings is

"Say If I gave you a Jam donut weighting 100grams. Would it be any faster for your to take it from my hands if it only weights 80grams? No."
