Description

This PC was made from a mix of old and new parts, about a year ago i bought a full PC off of my friend for £30, it had an i5 2320, gt620 and a motherboard made by Asus, when i first built the PC i bought everything on the parts list except from the CPU and motherboard, i originally had a deepcool tesseract sw, but the case wasn't that good, it was creaky. I guess i got my moneys worth, it was £30. I custom painted my GPU black from the colour red and my original plans were to have the PC black and blue, but then i got a new case and the PC is now an RGB theme... Because increased gaming performance and stuff... The Phanteks p400s tg edition is an amazing case, super easy to build in and really nice looking. And it feels really nice quality. I would fully recommend this case to anyone who is building a PC. Ive got to admit, now that ive been using the PC for a year ive noticed a large amount of slowdown on bootup time, when i built the PC it took a about 10 seconds to boot, but now it takes upwards of a minute, so i think the SSD may be the problem. Its a bit of a shame because everywhere else like opening files it is pretty fast.

I like the SSD, it was cheap and was fast but now experiencing slow boot up

Such a nice looking case, easy to build in and really nice looking

Is TRIM active on the SSD? That could be the culprit if it's off, as it clears no longer in use sectors. Other than that thanks for sharing your build :)

I dont think it is, what difference would it make if it was active? because if it is active wouldn't the SSD have been the same all along.

If it is active, then your SSD is slowing down. And that is probably because that is a TLC on a Marvel controller, slightly dated memory controller for SSD's. If it isn't active, activate then after a few reboots speed should improve. This will help you find if you have it enabled or not. Lower end SSD's may not have it active out of the box.
