Any need to put OS and FSX on separate . . . SSDs?

Recommended Posts

Was guessing maybe it's much less of an issue w/ SSD's over HDD's. What do you know for sure re this?Thanks in advance!Noel

I had my System and FSX partitions on the same SSD up to the last couple of weeks. Due to the need for more space I acquired another SSD and now have FSX on it having left my System partition where it was. I haven't noticed any difference in FSX or System performance after this move.

Maybe thats why i get stutters around big cities/airports. I have FSX and WIN7 on the same partion, on the same hard drive! I knew i had forgot to do something when i installed FSX.. Too late now.


My system which is due for delivery on the 27th October 2011

 

Intel i5 2500k 4.5ghz

Asus GeForce GTX560ti 1024mb GDDR5

Gigabyte Z68AP-D3

Corsair Vengeance Blue 8gb 1600mhz

Seagate Baracuda 500GB 6GB/s 16mb Cache

Cooler Master Elite case

Cooler Master hyper 212 CPU fan

G7 780w PSU - I know i need to upgrade this!

32" BEKO HD LCD screen

 

FSX Acceleration + UTX, GEX, REX, GenX VFR UK, all UK2000 airports, Mogwaisoft Shade, many Aerosoft Major Airports

 

And...

 

PMDG's 744X Queen of the skies.

 

Total outlay about £1500. Next i intend on getting a good Yoke and peddles.

If the HDD was the problem, you wouldn't be getting stutter, you would be getting blurries. Stutters are more a CPU/RAM sort of thing.Cheers,- jahman.

My CPU and RAM are surely ok. @ 1600mhz should my timings be 9-9-9-24 or 8-8-8-24?

Well, while your CPU is OK, in you sig you say it's running at 3.3 GHz. To get rid of the stutters in cities/airports you would have to OC to 4.5+ GHz (is what I have been reading others post, my PC is rather old).Cheers,- jahman.

That is good to know thank you. It's much easier to clone a backup on one drive than 2 or 3!

Its at 4.6 fella. Its got that i intend to OC to 4.5 after the 3.3ghz bit, although i went to 4.6 instead.
Intel i5 2500k 3.3ghz. Will aim to take it to 4.5ghz

jahman,I have noticed when certain .wav files load from ATC or sometimes other, there is often a pause in FSX's displayed video. When the sound is re-played the pause does not occur, which I assumed was because the call to execute it came from memory now that it was loaded on the first pass. I've always assumed this was from hard-drive reads. Another example of this quality of pause occurs for me when I was using ActiveSkyX and a weather update was occurring. I assumed this had to do w/ writing data to disk. Stop and start writes.Given these possibilities, do you think stutters, which one might argue are clusters of short pauses, is occurring from HDD operations, perhaps only w/ larger files, or when there are so many other competing demands from fsx runtime that the addition of the a minor HDD operation was enough to manifest a stutter?Noel

Stutters are due to CPU overload and are generally reduced by increasing CPU and RAM speeds. Lack of HDD BW shows up as scenery blurries, not stutters.Cheers,- jahman.

Maybe there is a difference between "stuttering" and "stutters".I agree that stuttering generally means that the CPU is overloaded,but here are certainly occasional stutters that arise when a sound file needs to be loaded, as an example.Not sure what the SSD contributes on my system other than it is very smooth and quiet!
