I am having a typical problem with my system : an i7 920, intel dx58so, 3 gb ddr3, 320 gb + 1 tb hdds, zebronics realwatts 600 pro psu, xfx 9800gtx + video card. The problem is whenever i try to rearrange my psu cables to make my cabinet's internals a little neatier, my pc slows down and it is evident from the very first bios display to the xp/vista/win7 programs and games i run. If i undo the rearrangement, my pc gets back its normal speed. I don't understand why or what is causing this ? Does rearranging the power/sata cables causes some electro magnetic interference that could slow down a pc ? Please help me..i was thinking of upgrading my hdd but now i am thinking twice..cause then i will have to rearrange my cables again & my pc will slow down ?
Can the video card be the problem too ? Is it possible that some static electricity has been accumulated in the video card and if i reseat it, that static would get discharged ? Same for the memory if i ask ? Is there a way to find out whether or not the pc components have accumulated static electricity ?
