Recently replaced my old hdd with new wd 1tb caviar blue. I cloned the old hdd directly onto the new one and everything runs fine except I get framerate drops every few seconds where fps is at above 50 and then drops to around 17, then goes back up to 50 etc. This happenes with most games I play ( far cry 3, borderlands 2, GTA IV)

Intel Core I3 4170
Asus H97-E Motherboard
4Gb Patriot Ram
GTX 750Ti 2gb

Win 7 Ultimate 64bit

Hi D_Know_WD

I ran the DLG short and extended tests where both did not show any errors. Disk Check did detect error and I scheduled a recovery after next startup.

The error in GTA IV is less but still there on some occations. Far Cry 3 seems to work fine, but with Borderlands 2 the problem still persists. I can remove the problem by capping the framerate to 30Fps but that is not really a solution.

If you have any other ideas, please let me know.

Thanx
