I'm fairly experienced at building PCs and knowing how components work, but I'd like a few second opinions on determining what the bottleneck in my PC is.
I'm trying to determine what the PC is waiting on when it pauses to "load".
Now I know I/O is traditionally the bottleneck, which is why I have the SSDs. In your guy's opinions what do you think the config has to wait on? Is it still the hard disks? Or maybe the motherboard's Sata2 3gigabit limit? I find it hard to believe it would be the processor, ram, or video card.
I'm just curious what your guys opinions are, thanks in advance.
Yea I went back and forth before buying the second SSD for Raid, reading articles about Trim support/degradation blah blah. It's been about 8 months, and they do seem slower than when i first got them, but not very noticeably so.
As to your question, I reinstall OSs every 4 months or so, I've always assumed that would fix any filesystem problems as far as Trim goes. My question is, do you think I should recreate the actual Raid array in the BIOS? Because it is a hardware raid I can reinstall windows without redoing the raid, so I havent touched the raid array since I originally did it. Do you think I should recreate the array?
