My pc is acting weird! Help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone I need help. So I bought first pc ever! I was ( and still am super happy), but It performs badly. So I have gigabit Internet. And whenever I download something through steam, torrent or anything else my hard drive acts weird. For 5minutes or so It writes fast I mean 200Mb/s. But after that It drops to 20Mb/s and then it literally eats my ram (24gb of them). Task manager shows 99-100% Ram usage, but does not show which program or task is using it.

And after I restart my pc around 24gb of file i was downloading is corrupted or just gone. I tried Seagate tool, sentinel tool but both show 100% health. 

 

My rig:

Intel 4690K 

Zotac 1080mini

Msi z97 gaming 5 Mobo

Hyper x fury 24gb 2400mhz ddr3

What model of hard drive do you have? This video here does a better job of explaining it than I could, so give this a watch.

 


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

A HDD uses a similar method of caching, so watch the video to understand what's going on. The only way you can fix it is by waiting around for it to finish copying the files to disk.
