I recently bought an Ultra II 480 gb SSD. I fresh installed windows 8.1 with all updates installed and from the first minute I noticed that when I’m trying to write big files to disk, or unzip big files the system starts lagging. Specialy when I have some browser open or doing something in parallel, system does like it cuts internet connection ( but it is connected ) , windows explorer is hanging , I can move windows but this is probably because are running in RAM etc…and after 20-30 seconds system comes back normally. Also sometimes I notice mouse lags.
I checked into windows log and I don’t see any error related, I also run Crystaldisk and I don’t see any errors from the disk there(S.M.A.R.T).
Today I was checking the bios and I noticed that SATA setting was in IDE. I changed it to AHCI and things seems to be better. But while running GTA 5 to test the system, At some point game started lagging like seeing a GIF picture. In frames. After 20-30 sec stopped and it was running ok.
Is there any way to do some diagnostics to the disk and check him if he is the problem or not?
The system is brand new. I already checked Memory ( They are also new ), Mobo , and changed SATA cables. The problem appeared after the transition from HDD to SSD.
System Specs are :
AMD 8320 FX
Asrock Extreme 3 Rev 2.0
DDR3 Crucial 12GB 1600Mhz
SSD 480GB Sandisk
HDD 1TB WD
ATI Radeon R9 270x
