Well its been running ultra smooth for about 2 weeks now until i upgraded the ram and put my USB 3.0 hard drive in the case.
Now this may be ridiculous but i think that my 3.0 HDD may be sending off some sort of frequencies that may be causing my computer to malfunction and lock up almost causing my computer to slow to nothing. i only say this because i had this drive located next to my wireless keyboard USB device on my of my case and it was causing communication issues with the keyboard.. Now i have it neatly tucked inside my case next to the power supply. And i notice its random when this "major slowing down/locking up" is when i am 1: using chrome and listening to anything on the HDD and will only freeze up when attempting to reopen a window after i close one quickly (which makes zero sense to me) 2: when i'm trying to do anything with the HDD it sometimes just slows the entire system down.. and if i unplug the device it still shows up on my computer settings until i restart..
I'm more or less trying to rule out the RAM being the issue because these are all very high grade components.
just curious if the HDD is going to damage my PC in any way and why in the world a high bandwidth 3.0 device would cause any issues besides maybe poor drivers? but that still doesn't explain the freezing up..
Aalso i notice a small "click" when something is acting weird in my computer which i have no mechanical parts besides fans moving in this machine and my CD drives but those would have no reason to be active during the times i hear these sounds. its almost like an electrical click but all my wiring and stuff is just fine i've quadruple checked and re-wired this PC.. maybe i'm just not used to the issues of a high end computer or there is a serious problem that someone can enlighten me about??
thanks i hope to get some positive feedback!
