Download speed discrepancy to HDD?

Windows 10

I have a 2TB Seagate Barracuda that is less than 4 months old, that I use as my main storage drive. I also have a 4TB Seagate that I use to store all my movies and a NAS. When I download files from my seedbox thru Chrome, I'm only getting around 8 MB/s to the 2TB, even though I have a wired gigabit connection and I usually got 60 MB/s+. Downloading the same files to the 4TB and the NAS is fine, I get my full speeds (70-80 MB/s), so I know the issue isn't with my internet. If I copy paste the file from the 4TB to the 2TB i get good speeds, it actually fluctuates a lot but averages around 70-80 MB/s, so it's not an issue with the write speeds, right?

This has only been an issue for the past few weeks, everything was fine at first. I also noticed that a single file that I downloaded yesterday gave me full speeds, randomly, but just that single occurrence. I've also ran CrystalDiskInfo and it says the drive is healthy. Any ideas?

You should probably get a hard drive to go along with that ssd. Something like a 2tb barracuda compute would only be another 55$. 256gb is nowhere near enough storage. Warzone alone is 182gb, and you will find yourself near constantly running out of storage. (Had 256gb for years, trust me it’s not worth the savings)

That's what you need, I don't know why you have a compute version, you're not running a server.

The only change I'd make is a 650w since PSUs tend to come with 5-10yr warranties so the headroom is nice. Overall it's a solid [email protected] build and modest 1440p gaming.

You can easily purchase a 2TB Hard Drive for around $50 if you need the extra memory. See example here

In regards to GPU, a 2080ti on r/hardwareswap is probably the best bang for your buck ($500) IF you want to purchase used. If you're in the new market, the better recommendation would be a 2070s or if you are a gambling man and willing to tinker if necessary, a 5700xt.

Nvidia just announced their 30xx and Big Navi (AMD) is also right around the corner in October. If you're willing to wait, I would hang onto your card and see what happens in the coming months as the new cards could be in stock (this is important since 3080 just launched and not a lot of people could buy it) and be a better value.

Why'd you go for a micro atx board. Switch that for an ATX my suggestion is the b450 tomahawk max. The cpu cooler is optional you dont need really need it, thats up to you the stock cooler works fine. Also there are no 3070s in stock and who knows when they'll be back up. If I were you I'd wait for more news on the new AMD cards they're supposedly going to be better and cheaper the Nvidia 3000s GPUs. Edited: Also get more storage add another 2tb hard drive in there.Seagate

You don't need a WD, you can get 2TB and 7200 on the cheap. There's a reason this drive is the best-selling HDD lol, it's a good one

Isn't this the same thing but with 7200RPM?
$50 btw from Amazon by Seagate

Any of them work. This is the one I went with because it's cheap and Seagate BarraCuda drives have always been very reliable for me. If you need any help, feel free to PM. I spent weeks trying to figure this all out so I know quite a bit, but I saved you the leg work and you have everything you need to know!

It will get around 20-25 FPS, in my experience. Storage should easily be able to fit within 20GB, though; my entire MultiMC folder is 18GB, containing all the mods I have ever downloaded with it on this computer with no consideration for storage constraints at all.

I would highly recommend getting a cheap high-capacity HDD, though. You can get 2TB for only $49.99 now! Those prices have actually decreased considerably from 2016.

Almost forgot, that power supply is non modular. Even semi modular is very useful as you won’t have cable spaghetti of unused cables in your power supply shroud or even worse, visible in your case. As previously mentioned, here’s a really good hard drive that I have two of in my system.

Do you need an 8TB hard drive?

The BarraCuda 2TB is 7200RPM instead of 5400RPM. If you really need the 8TB go for it.

Looks good I don’t know too much about radeon graphics cards, so I’m not sure if it’s the best price to performance. As for your hard drive I would suggest this one link it’s cheaper than the one you’re getting, it’s the same rpm but it has more storage. I actually have this one in my personal rig and it runs like a charm.

You’ll want more storage than 500GB. That SSD is fine for your boot drive. But I’d also recommend getting a Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD to store games on. $52 Here’s a link:

r/pchelp • comment

No it’s 5400.

I’d recommend this instead

It’s 2TB and 7200rpm for only $10 more

If this is about the hard drive, I would suggest 2 terrabytes. Seagate barracuda has one for $50 which is only $6 more. It might help.

Is there a big difference between fire cuda made for gaming And the one you pointed out (probably this Seagate BarraCuda 2TB Internal Hard Drive HDD - 3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch - Frustration Free Packaging (ST2000DM008) Or is that all probably marketing/advertisment?

i haven't set the partitions yet. In the guide i was following they have you do that after hooking up the new drive. Could that be the problem? (im using a 2 tb hd ST2000DM008

That 2tb hard drive is really slow at 5400 rpm. If you are buying a hard drive, then at least get a 7200 rpm one. This one is really good price to performance:

r/CabaloftheBuildsmiths • comment

  1. Yep, this build would easily support resolutions up to 4k in games with that 2080 super, and the 9700K should let you play at 1080p in games that will allow frame rates way over 144hz. Either would be a significant improvement on a basic 1080p60 monitor, what monitor is it that you have exactly?

  2. 2 TB - this 2TB HDD can be added to the build above

  3. XMP is very simple, when you push the power button on the computer to start it up, there is a key (usually delete) that you can push before it boots up windows. This will take you into the BIOS for the motherboard, and in that there is a setting to "enable XMP" which will automatically overclock the ram to give you the 3600Mhz advertised speed. Then you just save and exit normally, job done.

r/buildapc or r/buildapcforme are better subreddits for this kind of thing

What are you going to do with this build?

For gaming this is pretty unbalanced

Get a weaker CPU (Ryzen 3600 or 3600x) and bump up the GPU to a 2060 Super or RX5700XT or maybe even a 2070 Super if your budget allows it

The RAM is too slow for Ryzen, better get 3600 Mhz

If you aren't doing anything heavier than gaming 16GB RAM is sufficient

Storage should be at least 1TB. You can get a 1TB SSD for all your storage or use a 256GB SSD for OS and get something like this for the rest of your storage

I would recommend you watch Youtubers make parts list or visit the subreddits mentioned above

(I don't want to offend anyone but unlike what many others have said in the comments this is NOT a good parts list, at least for gaming)

Get this HDD. Also, you need to spend more on your GPU and you don't really need a CPU cooler. Also, that PSU way overpriced.

Get a 1650 super instead of the rx580 it gets 5-10% more performance for $5-10 more. Also you can get a 2tb barracuda hard drive for 10$more

Make sure it is at least 7200 rpm, and as for cache I wouldn't worry toooo much about it, just get a good drive from a good brand and that shouldn't be a problem Also 2tb drives are about $20 more (or less in some cases) so I would just go ahead and get a 2tb to avoid future storage issues. The one I recommend is this: Had it for 2 years now with no problems. Is fast enough and it's huge.

Seagate 2TB 7200RPM HDD

It starts at around 500 mb/s then dips down to the 500kb/s to 8 mb/s and is like that for the rest of the transfer, when writing data to the drive it skyrockets to 100% usage in task manager aswell.

This recently started happening in the last few months, the drive used to be snappy and quick when transferring bigger files

Idk if that link will work but please just get a new hard drive or SSD. Also try freeing up old games and videos from your PC.

Low space sucks and can ruin your entire PC experience. It’s better to upgrade if you can.

Samsung strikes again. You can save ~$30 if you go with a cheaper SSD if you aren't utilizing the high end read/write speeds that drive provides. Also this.

HDD was not modded before TSOP, trying to use a brand new Seagate Barracuda I am using an official controller.

The reason I mentioned Drive X is that's where HEXEN stops formatting for a new NTSC drive no matter which mode the jumper is set to and Chimp does something similar albeit it's "unable to detect the first sector" or it just tried to boot and sits there.

I'm new here too, but I found this hard drive for $50 2 TB. I think it also has a higher disk RPM than the one you had in there as well.

Also, I might look at getting a separate CPU cooler than the one that comes with the 3600. IMO, a good cooler offers a lot of value for the price because it lets you work for longer, overclock higher, and keep your parts safe. You could find a good fan for the 3600 in the range of about $30-$60 I think.

You won't face any issues. however, try finding the case from here as the case shipping usually a lot more expensive than the case it self. I also noticed that the price for the HDD is not that much cheaper than the 2TB faster variant($54.99) so it might be worth the extra \~2BD to double the storage.
