    I find this to be completely acceptable.

    Really haven't had time to do more than some burn in tests and get my software installed. Hope to start actually working on it this week.

    Heck Yah! :supergrin: I would learn to deal with this system too!

    Great Ram size... you can run a couple VM's while rendering some video with this system!

    Thanks for expanding my thoughts about my next system build... :cool:

    Enjoy!

    Really has been running great. Ordered a couple of cheap 1tb drives to add to it for additional storage & backups. Also ordered some power extension cables so that I can relocate the motherboard and video card cables through the cable management area.

    Primary usage is software development. Secondary usage is light gaming.

    That is nice, it takes a powerful system to score 7.8 overall since even one weak area really pulls the score down. I really like the copper CPU cooler with the black motherboard. Good job!

    Bah. Can't stand that crap.

    A single OCZ Vertex 3 120gb (SATA3 6/gb).

    Going to stick a couple 1tb Seagate green drives in RAID1 for extra storage.

    Nice!

    I will be happier when SSD has a proven ability to *wipe* the drive... just remember not to throw it away when done... I would say 'Burn it with Fire' just to be sure... :cool:

    That *beast* sure will run though! Obviously...

    Enjoy!

    I can't remember the last drive I threw away or sold with a computer, but from what I understand SSD's by their nature make it extremely hard to recover data from. The wear leveling feature basically does the overwriting automatically that you'd otherwise do with a 'wipe' type of program.

    edit:

    If I understand this correctly, using TRIM basically removes the need to even do a wipe as it makes data recovery pretty much impossible.
