Tips for quicker backtests in LEAN?

Hello everyone

I'm currently working with LEAN locally, and high resolution (minute, sometimes second) data, and I'm wondering how I can make my backtests run faster. I have a fairly high speed computer, but i'm not sure it's living up to its potential. LEAN is currently processing 5-15k data points/second, but i'd like to bump that up a lot without changing the code significantly. How can I rededicate my computer resources or find a way to make it run faster? Jared mentioned in a different thread that he's seen 500k+ data points/second, and I'm just wondering how much further I can push my computer and how I can do it.
