xarik Posted June 14, 2016 Share Posted June 14, 2016 Hey everyone, Been on these forums for over 4 years but rarely post anymore since I've been so busy with school but this is a question that just been begging to be answered since it's slowing me down astronomically. Firstly, I'm using LR 5.3 64-bit. The main issue is speed of applying edits to images as well as going through the images and using the zoom at any factor. Here's the specs of my computer: Asus Z170A LGA1151 MOBO 16GB - Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400Mhz RAM (stock clock) i7 6700k 4.0Ghz Quad-core (stock clock) Radeon Sapphire R9 280 (stock clock) EVGA SuperNOVA 750W PSU Crucial MX100 256GB SSD (contains all programs and OS) ProRaid HFR2-SU3S2 Raid system with 4X HGST Deskstar 3.5in 2tb 7200RPM drives plugged in via Firewire to USB 3.0 (This setup contains all of my work files [CR2 files and edited files]) That should be all of the important information. My best guess is that my RAID system is just too slow for the rest of the system, but other programs slow down too and I did a test with files on my SSD and it was no different. Catalogs are on the RAID too. I'm pretty frustrated after spending $1400 on a computer several months ago and getting hardly any better performance over my previous laptop which was 4 years old and had similar specs but much older. Any help would be great! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
