hey guys first time posting.
im not sure if this is the right thread for this?
but anyway, this is my system..
Intel i7 2600k @4.4 (55°c when gaming)
Corsair vengeance 1600 16gb
Amd sapphire hd7870
Asus p8z68-v gen3
Corsair force series 3 GT 120 ssd
Wd caviar black 2tb
i recently purchased a Samsung 850 evo 256 ssd as a game drive, but since i first installed it, there have been issues
1st game i moved onto the SSD was GTAV.. instead of a 40secondish load time, it was about 10 minutes.. during the load screen i noticed the background images wernt loading.. the screen was just black with their info tips. and when i was finally ingame i noticed there was an animation delay of me getting into a vehicle.. then a delay in firing my gun.. and by delay i mean i would left click....over....and over.. and my character would not shoot.. i could walk about just fine.. once i was in a car and driving at full speed, the game would crash. i have been testing this heaps and its froze, many times. sometimes when driving id change radio stations and it would make a clicking sound, like im changing the station, but it wouldnt actually load the new stations music.
i thought this could have just been steam or a bad restore of gta.. i then put arma 3 on my ssd and it ran fine.. i then put bf3 on and i thought it ran fine.. but later on i played more and i noticed the icon for caputuring the flag was freezing heaps... so that rules out gta and steam as being a cause.
i copied gtav back to my data drive and tested it, and the game ran, didnt crash, but the game menu was slow, laggy.. which it never use to do..
i have installed samsung magican, states i have the latest firmware. their benchmark software shows my read/write are up at 500mb.. i have tested with atto, giving same results.
the ssd is deffinately in ahci mode, because my OS drive is fine. but for a test i swapped them to IDE..didnt fix a thing. i have changed cables, changed ports. i am using the intel 6gbs port, NOT the marvel ports.
i am pretty much out of ideas.. the only other thing i can think of that i havnt done is formatting..and thats more of a last resort.. if anyone has any ideas its greatly appreciated
i have googled quite a bit and have found no solution.
