Im new here but Im not total noob. Just getting grips with all of this.
Im just curious with my new PC which I made for the first time. I think my RAM and the Hard-drive is not working too well.
Here is the windows experience score.
So I just wanna ask is the score OK for this system, very importantly the RAM and HDD score.
If you have any tips to improve with out overclock please let me now.
In addition, I have 2 problems with this system,
1. The cpu gets little too hot. Everest Monitors at
Motherboard 40 °C (104 °F)
CPU 43 °C (109 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #1 50 °C (122 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #2 51 °C (124 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #3 50 °C (122 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #4 45 °C (113 °F)
Aux 43 °C (109 °F)
GPU Diode 44 °C (111 °F)
HDT722516DLA380 42 °C (108 °F)
Seagate ST3320620AS 42 °C (108 °F)
CPU 1987 RPM (Speedfan at 75%)
Rear 1321 RPM
GPU ? RPM (Rivertunner at 75%)
2. Hard drive clicks and sometime its on a full load even when Im doing nothing on the PC and sometime it also happens when I have just booted into Windows.
I appolgize for not seeing your signature with your list of parts....
Your temps seem to be ok. What is a bit scary though is you stated your hard dive is "clicking". that's not a good thing. You should be able to hear hard drives spinning up and down but clicking ussualy is not a good thing. Depending on which hard drive it is you might want to start preparing for it to fail.
when talking about full load in your second question are you reffereing to the hard drive or the CPU? You may want to try defragging and running scan disk. (It might also be time for a clean format of the drive?). I'm wondering if its possible you might have a virus of some sort.
In england the temps not that high but my room is little hotter than the rest of the house. Dont ask why. Im scared because Ive seen same cpu overclock at 3.25ghz with idle temps at 41-45 (they used custom cooling though).
about the clicking harddrive sound, Ive read in other forums including here (somewhere), that many other people are having the same problem as my 320gb barracuda is having. Plus I have also disabled PREFETCH on windows7 and now the hard drives running very smooth.
The full load was of CPU and GPU. The temps are for CPU only. This is new PC and the hard drives were brand new and they were clean formated before the installation of windows xp and windows 7 (dual boot). The hard drives were defragged and ran scan disk once all my programs were installed. Im running NOD32 and Spybot from beginning so I dont think I have a virus or any spyware.
Thanks guys for your replys
Does any one know how to change RAM timings, I was told that reason for low score of my RAM in WEI could be cause of worng RAM timing and should set it to manufacturers setting.
PS could some please find out what my RAM timing should be.
