Turbo Charging windows

Recommended Posts

Yeah. Clearing pagefile at windows shutdown definately brings a bit of security to our windoze, but slows down the shutdown badly...

 

Dunno if it's linked or two different thing though... I only know it's 5 times faster at least, depending on the size of the swapfile...

 

Startup speed can be accelerated by using faster hdds ;):D

hehe. I took my raid and thought about a bit of testing with single drives as there are some probs with raid and APIC... bang. I can live with the lower hdd performance now, thus gaining stability with APIC on and no more hardlocks clocking my rig in windoze ;)

 

Temps get warmer outside now :D Only -52°C load temps at 3.1GHz LOL

Hardrives you say, prolly looking for a cool and free temperature monitor for those hard drives. may want to check out: http://www.rsdsoft.com/hdd-thermometer/index.php?lang=eng

 

EDIT: Getting an occasional temp jump on the SATA to 227 degres. Goes back down immediately but flashs an overheat warning when triggered. Works fine on my ATA drives though.

Oh.... that reminds me, I've been meaning to ask this:

"Speedfan" can monitor HDD temps, but it also shows S.M.A.R.T info even though it is disabled in bios. Does this mean it's overriding bios setting or can it scan the HDD's without the need for S.M.A.R.T to be on in bios.
