New Intel Rig Giving Me Issues, Please Help

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello I am here to ask for help. I may be in the wrong place but before I am told to get back in the kitchen, please allow me to explain myself.

I work full time and I am a full time student. I have very limited income. I have been saving for a new computer for years and finally saved up enough to buy everything I want and build myself one. This is my first computer build.

While using the computer for image editing, sound editing, Microsoft Office use, internet browsing, or gaming I frequently experience what seems like lag. The mouse will jump jerkily across the screen and actions will commence and decommence. For example if I am in a game it will show me moving forward, then backward. This is not online but in single player. Or in Photoshop a menu selection that I clicked may drop down then resend even though I did not click twice. These episodes will last less than a minute and I cannot isolate it to any one type of activity.

I have had the computer for two weeks. I built the computer very carefully over about a week. I tenderly organized all the cables, installed each component, and firmly connected them all. I read every manual’s installation instructions over and over. Like I said, I am poor, so I could not afford a single mistake.

Once booted I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit. It is my intention to dual boot with Linux but want to get everything working properly first. The issue with the lag started immediately, before the installation of other software.

I used another computer to download the driver for my wireless card (opting to download the most recent drivers vs. installing old drivers then updating) and installed that first. Then installed from the corresponding websites drivers for my motherboard, video card, sound card, etc. I checked to make sure that the virtual memory was set properly well above the minimum requirement for my system.

I Installed the following Software:
Microsoft Office 2010: Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook
Adobe CS5: Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Audition, Bridge, Encore, Flash Catalyst, Flash Professional, Flash Professional 4, OnLocation, Premiere, Dreamweaver, and Contribute
Google Chrome 11.0.696.71: SpeedDial, Iconized Bookmark Button, IEtab
Daemon Tools Lite
Media Monkey
DirectX 11
AVG Free 2011 (sans the link scanning software/components)
Steam: Half Life 2, Portal 2
All the software is legitimate or legally free, purchased at retail or with student discounts.

My Computer System Is Comprised of The Following:
Motherboard: AsRock P7 Extreme 4, I installed all drivers from website aside from the optional software for overclocking and processor management. I have also an ASUS P8P67 LE that is on its way, as this motherboard was an inbox new unused mobo lent to me by a friend until mine came in.
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W
Power Supply: Raidmax Hybrid 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V
RAM: 16,384MB Corsair XMS 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333 x 4
Video Card: EVGA 02G-P3-1386-KR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0
Sound Card: On Board Mobo card for speakers and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 MIDI Card.
Front Panel Memory Card reader: Koutech IO-RCM630 USB 3.0 Internal Card Reader for Front Panel
DVD Burner: ASUS DRW-24B1ST SATA II 24X DVD Burner
Hard Drive 1: Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA III 7200 RPM (plugged in with SATA III cable to SATA III port on mobo)
Hard Drive 2: Seagate Barracuda 400GB Sata II 7200 RPM (plugged in with SATA II Cable to SATA II Port on mobo)
Extra Components: Agama USB Keyboard running windows driver and Microsoft Wireless USB mouse running windows driver. ASUS monitor

Things I have Tried So Far:
Checking dxdiag, Windows Recognizes all the components and they are working.
When weeding through the event log I see no errors or significant events during the periods of lag.
Through the device manager I have individually checked each component to ensure they are the most up to date.
Running netstat -a, from command line, during lag points do not reveal any unexplained connections.
Task manager doesn’t show any unidentified/unwanted processes.
Loosely researched each installed component for known issues causing lag, found some stuff about problems with SATA III HDDs but that was supposed to be fixed with latest mobo update.
I have scanned for viruses and am considering installing and running registry mechanic but it seems unlikely to identify the issue seeing as it has been present since OS installation.

Can anyone help me understand why these lag points are occurring? I am obviously a newb at this but not completely illiterate and can handle pretty much any task with some direction I can Google what to do, I just don’t know what to do next.

What you've described isn't necessarily vague, but it's very difficult to identify what's at fault (and I'm sure you're aware of that ).

If it were me, I'd reinstall windows to see if that fixed it (and I'm reasonably certain it would). It could be something really exotic such as a faulty motherboard, but I doubt it.

Also, have you run a memtest? Doubtful it's your memory, but it's always nice to make sure

It sounds too me like a problem with your sata controller or drivers.What port is your boot drive plugged into?It just sounds like data isn't flowing properly.

I will try a windows reinstall Monday when I get my new Asus MoBo. I know its vague, why I can't identify the issue or discover how to fix on my own...

If you haven't done it, change your windows Power Saving settings from balanced to high power.

Port 0. In the instructions for the mobo it said boot drive must plug into 0.

Is the enable hot plugging option in your bios?If it is enable it.This is a fairly common issue with that chipset when in ahci or raid mode.If you don't have the latest bios I would try that too.

Looked into the hotplug deal on the Asrock website, looks like it is default enabled. Didn't say anything about the ability to change that in bios. I have noted that and on next boot in a bit here I will go into Bios and ensure it is enabled.
