Second and most important rendering setting is Image sampler this setting effects speed and quality. I use Adaptive DMC most of time. it fast and gives better quality.

if you render fast as you can: make Adaptive Subdivision : min: -2 , max: 0

if you want better quality make this setting below: Adaptive DMC , min:1 , max:16

i will explain this settings if you write qustions with the message form.
