Wondering if I should change my WD Blue 1TB SATA-III 7200 RPM 64MB

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I have a problem with my pc: in cs go, especially at lower resolutions (currently playing 1024x768 on 144 hz monitor), I'm lagging very bad (tearing and sometimes stuttering). Higher resolutions are way smoother but still getting some random freezes. My fps is around 200-250. This doesn't happen on smaller maps (like aim_map), but it does happen on large, competitive maps (especially de_cache, and the lowest tearing I get on de_mirage). I took my pc to warranty guys and they changed my CPU but the problem isn't gone yet. The only thing they didn't test was the HDD because they have a separate SSD with their test windows on it, so that's why I believe the HDD is the problem here.

I did a HDTune test after a windows reinstall and I got no errors, though my transfer rate dropped from 160 mb/s to 80 mb/s in 2 hours of test running, then after the test was done it went back to 140 mb/s or so. I started thinking it might be the HDD when I tried playing League of Legends while unzipping using winrar, and I was getting massive fps drops.

Also some setups open very slow, in 10 seconds or more (not all of them).
Also, my pc again runs better after it's already started for a while. So if I run the pc for about 8 hours, the games will run better.
And also, I can't put my pc into sleep mode. It basically just restarts. On the old windows when trying to get into sleep mode I was getting a blue screen which looked awful: http://imgur.com/Q60UBS3
The last thing would be that after getting a blue screen, I always get the "Reboot and select proper boot device" thing, and I need to shut down my computer from the button so that it boots in windows again (restart doesn't work).

Now after the anniversary update for windows 10 I got like 2 blue screens in a few hours, and the same message: "Reboot and select proper boot device", which still solves by shutting down the pc and starting it again.

I would need a confirmation from you guys that it's indeed the HDD causing those problems so I can buy an SSD (ADATA Premier Pro SP550 Series 240GB SATA-III 2.5 inch is my choice so far, if you have any other recommendation it would be great, or maybe some opinions about this one). I would still use my HDD for some random stuff such as recording videos and playing not so "heavy" games, such as League of Legends or World of Warcraft (because I don't lag in older games), and keep the SSD for playing CS GO at a competitive level.

This is my current HDD: WD Blue 1TB SATA-III 7200 RPM 64MB

Thanks!

What config you have ?

Do this benchmark and post the result url

would help with your PC full specs and are you overclocked? smile.gif

Just FYI the hard drive wouldn't cause that stutter if you're using that low of res, but we'll get to the bottom of this.

use DDU and re install latest GPU drives and see if problem goes away if not gpu might be faulty
also use this software to tell error code and what driver or file caused it http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

HDD is highlighted with red and it says this: The boot partition is located on a mechanical or hybrid drive. Moving the system to an SSD will yield far faster boot times, better system responsiveness and faster application load times.
CPU and GPU are both highlighted with orange.

That's how it looks like on the page: http://i.imgur.com/09avWMW.png

Some more details:

All performing as expected. I'm a bit confused right now.


UserBenchmarks: Game 33%, Desk 41%, Work 29%
CPU: AMD FX-6300 - 50.7%
GPU: Nvidia GTX 660 - 36.4%
HDD: WD Blue 1TB (2012) - 104.2%
RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 C10 1x8GB - 28%
MBD: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P

I am not overclocked yet but I bought a cooler and a new mobo just for doing that. So I tried overclocking once (got my fx-6300 to 4.5 ghz), but saw no difference in performance.

Hey, it looks like it's a problem with windows 10 anniversary update. A lot of people are getting blue screens so I will wait until a fix. I have no idea how to use that BlueScreenView.

Ok try clean install for Windows 7 and install latest drivers from the internet then try CS:GO then tell us what happen. Also I did not hear about this brand for a power supply before if you can get another power supply for testing will be very good to narrow down the problem something good like seasonic, corsair, xfx, etc....
