Nobody has asked the question... Did you reinstall windows? or did you format / partition and install?

Because that's going to make a huge difference as well, conflicting software drivers. Even though the PC knows those components are no longer there it will still run like a dog.

In fact my Mark11 score with conflicting OS, was around 3600, when I formatted and installed on a clean drive went up to 4300.

It was a noticeable difference as well.

No problems. Good luck and let us know what changes you make and how they effect the performance and "feel".
It's so little!

Just make sure that the Hyper 212 Plus will fit into your case. It is quite big. A bit of a PITA to install but yields good results. A friend of mine uses one.

Seriously, I just read from page 1-11 every single post on this thread and no1 really asked the basic questions. Everyone jumped and assumed it was HDD.
Even if it was asked, I think it was at some stage someone asked "Did you reinstall" which isn't specific, it was still never answered. New RAM, new CPU cooler, new HDD aren't going to make a lick of difference if the above is this case. Plus there's obvious other issues which should be addressed.

Yes i reinstall windows like a million times, think i mentioned this somewhere, even tryed windows xp 64 bit, 32bit, home. still same result.





anyway, i just recieved my new ram, its 1.65v memory, will this work fine in my mobo? doesn't say in manual :S ram i'm using now is 1.5v, so could someone let me know, and also tell me the difference of a 1.5v memory and 1.65v memory. Thanks

The 1.65v should work just fine (standard for DDR3).

Yes, but even capped at 5.9 there is a huge difference between mechanical harddrives.

I had a Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB installed, and it was my only HDD, ironically, it replaced a 640 WD Caviar tuned to be silent - and I put it in my Media Center because of that. But since the 640GB has 2 320GB platters, versus the 500GB's two 250GB platters, it was actually slower in some cases.

I now have a 1TB Caviar Black as my main drive - 2 platter 500GB each and I noticed a big improvment in responsivness, in game level loading, in web browser tab opening times (I have more than 50 tabs open in Firefox).

HDTune confirms it is a much faster HDD than the 500GB model. I have no idea why Windows caps the Experience Index for mechanical HDD's at 5.9, maybe it's because no mechanical HDD has yet reached the 6.0 performance threshold. But that does not mean the performance difference isn't there and isn't noticeable.

Having said that, an 80GB HDD has a much smaller aereal density, and thus the head has to travel more to fetch the same data. It IS a limiting factor.

I wouldn't buy anything less than a 320GB, single platter HDD nowadays. It really is not even worth buying less because the price difference is ridiculous.
