  1. Well I can guarantee you it hasn't done that until a month or so ago whatsoever, so something is definitely not lined up. When it does happen, a game that would load (through HDD) usually in 10 seconds, takes however long it takes the HDD to stop it's spin-up & clicking loop. So Normal game startup time when HDD was working: ~ 10 sec Game startup time now: 40 sec - 1 min 20 sec Varies on how many times it loops the spinning up process. EDIT: Also, just to add in, the drive itself isn't loud at all, actually quiet even when working full force. It's just the spin up and clic
  2. Ermmm what the f... it says it's been on for 18378 hours??? Not physically possible, since my electricity was out a few days ago for a few hours... NEVER MIND LOL Just realized that means how long it's been on in total, not how long it's been going in one session... Either way, please let me know if anything looks off. Here's a crystal disk screenshot:
  3. Hey guys so I have an issue with my hard drive as of recently. HDD: ST1000DM003-1ER162 - 1TB (Storage for non-loading screen intensive games & small apps) SSD #1 - XPG SPECTRIX S40G - 1TB (For loading screen intensive games & big apps) SSD #2 - KINGSTON SUV500120G - 120GB (For Windows, drivers, etc. mandatory things) Absolutely everything else in the PC works fine except the HDD (and even the HDD AFTER the issue happens) So here's how I get to trigger it: I usually do my job on my PC every day from noon 'till night ~ 10PM (hard drive is never used
  4. Neither reported any problems @ZephCloud Nope @TofuHaroto One thing I did remember though, is that a day BEFORE this started happening, I accidentally put my PC to sleep through Windows start menu. Could this be related to the issue maybe?
  5. @TofuHaroto BIOS on the latest version, tried 2 different cables, one which was from a different system with a working cable. Tried it in another system too with no luck. I mean it's better to check just in case
  6. Not 100% sure if this is the right category to post it in, but since it has to do with POST I assume it is :D So, I use my PC every day for work, and for gaming / entertainment and whatnot, meaning it's usually on the entire day from let's say 10AM to midnight. It works flawlessly while it's on, 0 complaints there. However for the past week or so (never happened to me in years) Whenever I turn my PC on the FIRST time of the day, the following happens: I see the ASUS logo on boot My HDD starts acting SUPER weird - it starts spinning up and then making a clicking noise, for
  7. Tried SpeedFan, no success. Hardware Controller looks okay but I feel like it'd be too much atm since I only need one fan. Maybe when I get a bigger case and better hardware in the future I'll get that. Ordered a PWM 4-pin fan, it should arrive Monday and I'll post any updates.
  8. I connected the fan to the header, and inside BIOS, there's only "PWM" and "Disabled" from the dropdowns, I can share a picture later if needed. In my bios, it seems the only way to control the fans is through something called "QFan control" and there seems to be no place to change the voltage..
  9. I'll try turning off PWM, but how do I change fan voltage? @keskparane Maybe it's under some abbreviation that I don't know about.. I got the newly purchased fan to work on the CPU fan spot, but it works at 100% ('round 2400RPM) and I couldn't control it Attached the pic below @LogicalDrm
  10. Hey guys.. my first post here :) I'm having a little issue here.. Today I bought a fan, didn't think too much about it even though I should've, but yeah, it was like 4$ so who cares. It's a brand called "Gembird". It's a 90mm / 9cm fan and it has a 3-pin connector, and I thought that wouldn't be a problem. But oh boy was I wrong. My MOBO is ASUS PRIME A320M-K, and per ASUS's official website, this mobo does support both 3 and 4 pin air coolers, with or without PWM. Things I've tried: Tried it on the fan header, doesn't give any signs of life. Tried switching PWM on or
