My HDD had been misbehaving a lot lately. Bluescreening and such. After numerous dead ends, I concluded it was the s-ata cable. So I got a new one.
Things improved slightly. I am no longer bluescreening. However, my performance goes to shit and my hard drive makes little dying noises - like, hey, I just stopped spinning
Speedfan tells me my system temperatures are largely okay. At peace it's fine. At load it seems fine. The only thing I question is that my AUX temperature rises to about 62 or so. I am starting to think this may be the problem, as it is usually 42. Where is the AUX temperature reading from? Does anyone know? Is it the south bridge?
My perfomance logs tell me that my paging file is failing buuut I'm inclined to think that's more of a symptom than anything. After all, can't write to disk if said disk is not working.
I'm going to go into my BIOS on the next restart and raises my shutdown temperatures for the HDDs, just in case. But if it's not overheating, then what might it be?
