sv_maxrate 15052
sv_minrate 5
sv_maxupdaterate 60
sv_minupdaterate 20
rate 9999
cl_updaterate 33
cl_cmdrate 23

oh sorry I forgot that put that, it's a 66 tickrate and it lags when 12 players are on but I wanted to put 16 slots on the server.
I could be wrong, but its my understanding that the tickrate and the updaterate and rate need to be the same and the cl_updaterate (client setting) as well. In order to see the results of a 66tick server u need to set the rate, the updaterate and have the clients set their update rate. Now I am guessing this is a computer that is dedicated to only being a server. If you are not already, do not use the Steam GUI to start the server. I would not use any pingboosters. Also, disable hyperthreading if enabled. That should fine for the server setting. I don't know what you mean by your internet speed being 12 up and down. Not sure if you are saying its 12Kbps or what. If that is the case, that would be the deciding factor. I am sure many people will disagree with something I have said, I am just using my past experience.
it is a 12mbps up and 12mbps down internet connection and I use srcds.
Ok first of all

rate, cl_updaterate and cl_cmdrate are CLIENT commands/vars, this has nothing to do with the server.

Second, if you really have 12mbit up, use these:
sv_maxrate 25000 (Will do easily on 12mbit)
sv_minrate 5000 (Will keep a good transfer between client and server)
sv_maxupdaterate 66 (You won't use 66 tick if you put it to 60)
sv_minupdaterate 20 (This one's fine, under 20 clients start to lag so this is a good minimum.)

Also, where is this "lag" coming from, is it you? Is it the whole server? Or maybe just a few clients? What kind of lag is it?

FPS/Ping boosting is one of the best things you can do for a dedicated game server, the more FPS, the better the server wil run.

the whole server lags.
Did you check on the CPU and RAM usage on your server? Are you running any other applications on it?
