|I think I may have partially fixed it by running a hard uninstall of Norton that came with my motherboard disk. It wasn't compatible with Windows 8.1, so I assumed it didn't install. I guess it was there the entire time in the background, causing my frame rates to decrease by 10. HOWEVER, I'm still going down to the 40s when I'm looking at intensive stuff in the game @ Ultra 1080p settings. I don't know for sure if this is normal for my specs or not.|
All latest drivers are installed. Only one PCIe slot, and it is set automatically.
Will it make a difference if I set it to ACHI? I have read somewhere that it "streamlines" the content of the HDD, which I assume is optimal for games, but I don't think it would generate better frames rates.
My boot drive is a 7200rpm WD Blue 1TB, SATA 3.
I have already switched out my RAM and it is set to 1600MHz by default.
