Did my HDD go bad? WD 1TB Black

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
This drive is a few weeks old. I have old vs new benches. Could it be the motherboard, OS, or just the HDD?

Anything unusual under the health tab?

Ive had that same type of looking graph as your newer benches on my os drive. It can happen if the os decides it needs to read or write something and causes the bechmark to be off.

EDIT, just noticed that I no longer had an OC on my CPU???

Thanks, everything says OK in the health tab.

I just swapped to my old drive that I cloned form. It does the same thing on two diff ports and wires.

Motherboard?

I just installed my 2 GTX460's and have been stress testing them when my problems started last night. I never heated anything past 79c, mostly low 70's on very mild clocks. (seriously)

Everything has been very slow. Slow to open web pages, slow to load, etc.

Any other tests I can do?

you could run prime95 or intel burn test for general stability testing. Usually motherboard failures will cause far more issues than intermittent drive speed dips. I can actually cause them on my benchmarks by opening a program during the bench.

Out of curiosity did you have the chipset drivers loaded for your motherboard?

Well, as well as doing the above, you should consider doing a virus scan with your preferred anti virus, as well as using MalwareBytes Anti Malware. Sounds like to me that something is leeching your hard drives speed.

Also, but less likely, the hard drive may be Dead on Arrival.

Thank you for the help. Keep in mind I have two HDD that used to work fine and do this now.

Plus, I have the "old" drive (which was put into storage outside of the computer) that was removed over a week before this started now does this also. It should not have the same bug if any since it was never used at the same time?

I will run my Kasperski test though.

More ideas? Will run Prime first.

Thanks and plus rep to everyone

turn off paging file and indexing on your computer. i dont remember how but it should keep your drive from writing all the type when your computer is in use.

That should fix the dipping in the hdd tune results.

Thanks, + rep.

I tried this, it helped some but did not resolve the issue.

Something happened a day or two ago. Everything became slow and sluggish, the change was noticable. i thought it was MSI afterburner and all the other testing software I downloaded. That is why I put the other cloned drive in from way before the issue.

It is hard for me to blame the software in the HDD or settings in the HDD because I put my backup HDD in that is older and error free and it does the same thing?

I dont want to overlook something though.

This is with paging file and indexing disabled. Easy to find on google.

do a defrag to see if it helps

http://www.overclock.net/hard-drives...ne-my-new.html

did quick search you most like have a window service or background program that is accessing the disk at the same time durning a test.

You can try booting into safe mode(mash f8 durning boot up)

try running hd tune in safe mode to see if you get the same results, most likely you wont. If in safemode you dont get any big dips then the drips are causes by background programs.
