    Re: Help Choosing SSD as Boot Drive

    I've been looking at the reviews and it looks like the Reactor may be the better drive to use as the C: drive.

    Thanks!
  2. Re: Asus Z170 Getting a new Cache Drive. Need Partition setup advice. Intel 535 120gb

    I always thought that RST Acceleration was a type of RAID. That's why you have to have your BIOS/UEFI setup as a RAID device to start with. Then, when you configure the Acceleration in RST, behind...

    Re: Mid-Range Mobo and RAM

    I know it's not an exhaustive search, but looking online at sites like NewEgg, all I could find for boards that support 8 slots are X79 boards. (i.e. Socket 2011) So, that means Sandy Bridge-E and...

    Re: Card upgrade?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    There are actually a few different reasons why I was looking at this...
    1. The 6870 card is 11.2" long and doesn't really fit that well into the case that I have.
    2. I...

    Card upgrade?

    I currently have a Gigabyte 6870 OC card. It's been working okay.

    However, I'm tempted to look at upgrading to a 7xxx series card.

    What do you think would be better?

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    I think I'll go with the 2500K as the video I am transcoding is a collection of DVD rips. It will take a little while, but it's not like it's my profession where...

    Re: i5-2500K or i7-2600K?

    Yeah, I agree that the i5 is 4 cores no HT and the i7 is 4 cores with HT.

    I am also considering using the Quick Sync option for transcodes, which would lend itself towards the i5. Reviews that I...

    I'm looking at upgrading to SB from my i7-920 (C0 stepping).

    With the OC potential of the SB parts I'm more leaning...

    Very professional layout. Colors look good and represent what has come before.

    So, looking at this board...

    With so many power connectors, do you use PCI-E connections to the board?
    That's the only way I can think of to get that many 12V lines and such.
