post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I put in a couple more fans and a bay inclusure/cooler for my hard drive but the S.M.A.R.T report says my spin up time is down. do i need more power or something?

Your hard disk is a WDC WD1600JS-60MHB1 with firmware 10.02E02.
The average temperature for this hard disk is 45C (MIN=33C MAX=60C) and yours is 46C.
Your hard disk's S.M.A.R.T. attributes are now being analyzed and a full report about the reliability, health and status of your hard disk is generated:
Your hard disk is not below any attribute threshold. This is good.
Your hard disk was never below any attribute threshold. This is good.
Your hard disk is now being compared to real data used to define normal values for your specific hard disk model. This way, the analysis can automatically use proper operating ranges. The images give you an idea of how each attribute is within such range. Current and raw values are shown for easier reference for experienced users. There are 463 hard disk models in the current archive.

Attribute Current Raw Overall
10Raw Read Error Rate2000 Very good
2Spin Up Time1853708 Normal

10Current Pending Sector2000 Very good
10Offline Uncorrectable Sector Count2000 Very good
10Ultra DMA CRC Error Rate2000 Very good

All of the attributes of your hard disk have normal values. This is good.

Well power would seem like the only logical possibility, try unplugging all of your CD ROM drives and all case fans (NOT THE CPU FAN LOL) and see if it improves any, if it does then you're gonna want a new powersupply.

What brand is your powersupply anyways? If its some generic POS (if it came with your case then its definitely a POS) then it may only put out 200W or so at room temperature, most PSU companies other than the really big ones with us overclockers (OCZ, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling) rate their power supplies in really cold rooms (barely above freezing) so at room temp the PSU will never be able to come close to outputting that kind of power sadly.

It came with my raidmax case so im guessing its a raidmax psu. Pretty sure the box said 450w.

Right, its supposed to be 450W but the truth is those no name PSUs can't really put out 450W, different manufacturers use different methods of cheating people into thinking they're getting a nice PSU (they could test it at -50c, if it does 450W at that temperature it probably cant even do 150W at room temperature lol, or they could test the INPUT wattage rather than the output, if you have a 100W PSU lets say and its 70% efficient then its output is 100W but its input is ~130W) long story short your PSU is probably a POS, by the way Raidmax doesnt make their own PSUs its probably some $5-$10 chinese power supply LOL.

I tried to disconnect all of my fans but there is still no difference. same 183

This didnt used to happen during the first couple months with my new computer but now, everytime i die in a counter-strike game, and then the rest of the people die, i take at least 30 sec to join the next battle. I dont think im lagging but it says something at the css window having to do with the server but 10 sec after that i join the next game. 30 sec is a long time in one round so i pretty much get owned. any suggestions? Is it my ram? because i did just recently overclock that. I was thinking it might have been my spin-up time but spin up time has more to do with booting right?
