You have no idea what you're talking about.
Pretty sure I do, call up any experienced certified technician worth his salt and they will tell you the exact same thing. You can keep your personal files anywhere you wish. The application however has to be installed on the same storage device of the operating system if you are expecting it to make a difference.

That's is not true it is the same hdd or ssd (storage device) it doesn't matter if it was the one that have the operating system installed in it

🙁..........Its not rocket science. Its based on how fast the device can read and write to and fro system memory. The efficiency at which this is done depends on where the operating system is since its job is to control the flow of data between all components connected to the motherboard, and all this starts with the storage device. But no, I understand, you all have your egos to defend so you can't possibly be wrong. According to you every single certified technician and instructor with tons of experience I've spoken to is incorrect.

There's no point in arguing in this thread, start a conversation or discussion if you want to further talk about it.

I doubt this has anything to do with the OP's storage as usually the symptoms of poor storage would be more pop in textures/graphics then it would be lower FPS.

@adridcs , have you tried anything else? While I know it may not be the ideal solution as it can be time consuming you may want to just backup any important files and do a clean install of Windows, drivers and your games.

He said he already did all that though. The only things I can think of that he might not have checked are the programs and services running in the background, and what power settings he has his display set at for his games under display settings.
