A self-assembled PC has been displaying some unwanted behavior in that it becomes unresponsive to input and graphical changes, yet sound is not affected.
Windows 7 64-bit
Cooler Master HAF 932 case
ASUS P6T MBoard (w/ AMI 0603, 5/19/2009 BIOS)
i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
One (1) WD3000HLFS-01G6U1 HDD
Corsair TX 750 PSU
two (2) PNY GTX260 graphics cards in SLI (w/ latest drivers)
6GB of OCZ DDR3 RAM
Sound Blaster Audigy sound card
Without warning, the HDD activity light will pop on and all inputs freeze…which in-game can be frustrating as h*ll.
The freeze period can last upwards of a couple of minutes, then it begins responding as usual without any assistance from me.
This may be meaningless, but the windows experience index seems to list disk data transfer rate as lower than i would have anticipated.
CPU - 7.4
RAM - 7.5
Graphics - 7.2
gaming graphics - 7.2
HDD data transfer - 5.9
Not what I’d expect from a fairly new Velociraptor…especially after a fresh install.
I did a quick search here, but didn’t see anything that matched all the criteria…can anyone shed some light here?
