Larger SSDs from the same SSD model/family (comparing different models makes no sense) are faster when writing data because they use more Channels in parallel: while smaller ones only use few channel (4 instead of 8) because they have less NAND modules on it.

The higher capacity variants of an SSD model often get their higher capacity from simply having more NAND flash chips of the same type as the lower capacity variants. Having more flash chips allows for a design where the controller on the SSD can access more data in parallel, allowing for higher speeds.

Let's pretend that SSD is using 32GB NAND chips for storage, so an 128G SSD need 4 of those chips to add up the space, and an 256G need 8 of the identical chips to make up the space, which means for read/write, on the 256G SSD it can R/W to 8 chips together rather than 128G's 4 chips, which make it much faster. But since there are other bottle necks, the ...

It is unlikely to be the browser per se. Try the following: Update to the latest version [45.0.1 at this writing] Clear the browser cache, in case you're short on space. E.G. on the History menu, select Clear recent history... and choose at least Cache. Restart in Safe mode, either from Help, Restart with Add-ons Disabled, or by creating a shortcut with ...

The flash chips used in silicon disks are subdivided into large blocks, each of which contains many 528-byte pages. It's not possible to erase pages individually; the devices are limited to erasing a block of data at a time. When software asks to write a 512-byte "disk sector", the drive will write the data to a new page and update some "index" data which ...

Your laptop has an Intel i7-2675QM processor. This is a mobile CPU rated at up to 100°C. As such the temperatures are perfectly normal. I have a similar mobile CPU that reaches up to 90°C when gaming.

Updating to the latest device drivers is the first step. If that doesn't work, disable the onboard wired NIC (Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller) in Device Manager, and the problem should stop immediately.

UnRAID would appear to be almost an appliance which runs Linux, software RAID and KVM. There is nothing inherently bad about this, although (from the website), they seem to be pushing something very similar to RAID5 - without calling it this - and that should be triggering alarm bells as 4TB disks should not be used in this configuration if you value your ...

for auto closing of the CMD window, just make a BAT file with powercfg -s 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c in it only. It will auto close, don't need echo off or Pause commands in there.

FYI -- disabling Floppy Disk Drives > Floppy Disk Drive in Device Manager worked for me. I was too lazy to restart and fiddle around in BIOS.

As you have a good system its not due to the performance of the system.SO First check out whether the hard disk have been properly connected.Loose contact make such problem. Secondly check you have installed and updated your drivers.In some cases performance lagging are shown due to the missing of proper drivers. Thirdly try reduce startup programs which ...

Firefox should not be hanging, it could be an extension or an unusual plug-in that's causing it, start by disabling your extensions.

Getting Thermal Paste will surely not solve your problem. If you upgrade your cooling, i.e., get liquid cooling or add additional fans, only then the heat will dissipate properly. Your motherboard probably has 2 RAM slots (1X2GB & 1X4GB) and so when you buy RAM, you'll have to replace the 2GB one. Also make sure that the RAM is dual-channeled (i.e., ...
