I've yet used the recommended settings but nothing really changed, the rendering is slower of few seconds so that's why I'm asking for an help to configure AE properly (the MultiProcessing tab)
MP will not work for all projects. Any Temporal Effects or 3rd party plug-ins or rendering to codecs that do not support MP rendering will foul things up. Just because MP worked fine on one project doesn't mean it will work fine on all. Generally I keep MP turned off because most of my work involves effects that do not benefit from MP rendering and more than 90% of my rendering is being done by the Adobe Media Encoder while I'm working away on other projects in AE.
The entire way MP is set up is un-intuitive and mostly a toss up. AE should be smarter frankly. If I have to test out different settings with each comp, how is that a helpful feature? Sometimes its fast. Sometimes nothing happens and it crashes. Sometimes it barely does anything.
By the way...brand new tricked out HP Z850 with 64GB of ram. Duel Xeon 2640s. 16 processors of doom and its really not significantly faster in AE than my I7 at home with 16GB of ram. Truly disappointing.

That's why After Effects is completely reworking how it does previews and whatnot.
In case you missed the big announcement today: next major update for After Effects CC revealed | After Effects region of interest
I would expect to continue to see further improvements in the next several versions.
