    Thanks alot i believe this is the problem I've read someone use this software and manage to fix the lag issue I'll try it and see if it works for me
    Edit: Is it safe to use quiethdd all the time with aam and apm disabled? Will it damage the hdd?

    no it will not damage your hard drive with AAM and APM disable. But it may if you are using a 10 years old hard drive not using voice coil mechanism.

    At last found a program that works : AAM/APM Control for HDD in CrystalDiskinfo 4.2.0
    AAM/APM Control
    confirm working on both my WD scropio blue internal and Elements SE, Full manual control over Acoustic and power management

    Does it set the aam/apm permanently or do i need to start up the app and keep setting it like quiethdd?

    it has a startup feature which adds a task to windows task scheduler
    just check start up, Prety neat can run without a installation
    Resident , Resident style hide : which closes it to tray, and trun off tray temp icon
    very well written little program
    my drives default apm state is 60H which is reads minumum power consumption with stand by on, I changed it to 80H i.e minimum Power without standby. or FEh which is high perfromance or full platter speed at the cost of power draw
    check the above posted link

    Ugh another dumb question sorry :/ you said you set yours to 80h, if I set mines to full performance is that okay or is the safe setting 80h?

    If you are on AC power than just leave it at high perfomance
    for extended use or on battery i recomend 80h

    Thanks. :)

    Did you test games to see if the lagging issue goes away?
