OCCT messing with me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im usually running Prime95 for my stress-tests but occasionally i also run OCCT. Used to anyways, on my old P5N-D/E8500.
Then it worked like a charm and no probs there, i was runnin 32bit Vista.

Now i have 64bit/EP45-UD3P/E8500. And i wanted for old times sake to occasionally run OCCT on it also.
What happens is that it keeps starting and stopping my HDDs all the time while the program runs and makes the PC "HDD-lag" everytime.

Is this normal? If not how can i fix it??

What exactly do you mean by the starting and stopping the HDDs.

Whenever I ran OCCT on my system would usually be almost unusable, since it stressed so much it would take ages to start a program.

The HDDs starts and stops regularly in 10sec intervals. I hear the HDD-clicks. And while testing this makes the system stop for about 1/2sec everytime. Its a really thorough stress tester i know and im starting to think that it stresses it so much that the HDD-phenomenon is a sideeffect.
