I just buyed few days ago a 3TB Caviar Green 3TB
When I installed the HDD first time I downloaded acronis tools and run a basic test all passed was fine,till now I don’t see massive problems except every time I work with tools like Adobe Photoshop or After effects I feel a bit freezing for a fragment of a moment like there is not enough power to make the hdd spin or it takes to much power at once. Which makes no sense to me as I have a 700W power supply and checked my config how much it should use in theory and that would be around 420W.
Any Ideas why this is happening would be apreciated as I have to work on this machine and this is now starting to get more often.
One thing more is when I started working on this hdd I used acronis to make a backup of my old sata hdd and put a complete backup on this new drive.
My config is:
CPU: Amd Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition
Motherboard: GA-MA790X-DS4 - Bios F9 - these is a new version F10D but it says its beta does it may be solution to my problem? It doesn’t say anything on Gigabyte site about hdd support bios
1 WD 3TB 2 partitions
2 Seagate 500gb
1 External hdd 1tb
all sata drives
Windows 7 64bit
