Well, when your solution include a few projects, time spent compiling might be quite long.
First solution I tryed was to move tmp build files to ramdisk, in order to boost performance and cut compile time.
It’s an old solution, and (almost) everything is already written, so instructions may be found here Speedup Visual Studio with RAMDIsk
and here Using RAMDisk to Speed Build Times
As you my figure, moved bin directory to ramdisk drive and … my experience: 2’40″ time spent down to 1’40″
BUT … pay attention to other (not encouraging) experiences, here is just one: RAM Disks do not speed up Visual Studio
