The os was originally installed on the SSD's...and then I read-up on how to manage them and changed the settings to AHCI later. Lots of testing...great improvements from that, and they've both behaved well for two years.
However I had not looked at the SATA settings before, nor did I take a photo of the way it was before. So when I reset the bios and saw SATA3...I thought...this must be wrong. I've got a SATA6 mobo and SATA6 hdd's (storage not os). But I wasn't sure how that setting would affect my SSD's...if at all. I think not at all.
The "playback" in iRacing is from within the game. Most racing games...you can't save replays. You can watch a replay afterwards and record it with another program like FRAPS at that point. Which I also have done.
However with iRacing it stores the race data in small files, your run the game interface within a browser...open the replay, which triggers the game on your local drive to start up...and it plays! :)
So all I have to do is have another program like FRAPS running at the same time...and hit record...and I get an uncompressed avi of the game replay.
tons of 'em
All without stuttering.
Can't figure out what has changed.
