Nice improvement. Good to know they can still squeeze some performance out of it.

The 510 would be my choice if I had the money, the only reason I went with the 320 was because I got it for about $200. The Intel 510 is the only drive I know on the market, latest gen, that has had no issues. All the other drives have had issues, Sandforce, C300, M4, all of them.
Why did you switch from C300 to Intel 320?

Right now Intel 510 is on sale for $240 on NCIX. So M4 and 510 have almost the same price. You vote for 510, but LA_Kings_Fan votes for M4, lol, again 50-50 opinions.

Some people go for 510 because it's 34nm and supposedly has a longer lifetime. M4 uses 24nm. But seriously, are we talking about like 20 vs 10 years?

Its VRM looks good, but its more of a cut down P8P67 Deluxe VRM than a Maximus 4 Extreme VRM, it shares 2 things with the M4E though, the PWM and the Inductors, the MOSFETs, the Tri MOSFET design, the capacitors, and the frequency divider/dual Driver IC is all the same as the P8P67-Deluxe.

Sweet little board though, i am itching for some more switches, maybe one to disable TPU like the other ASUS LGA1155 boards have? and maybe a dual BIOS? and add that memory from the M4E for the BIOS profiles.

Its also gotta be the most affordable ROG board ever, i gotta say its impressing me.
Glad you like the board. Will you really do a review?

NCIX ... so I assume you're in Canada ...

Crucial M4 128GB = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820148442 = $209.00

Crucial C300 128GB = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820148359 = $235.00

Intel 320 120 GB = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820167052 = $209.00

Intel 510 120 GB = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820167042 = $239.00 w/ -$40 Off MiR

The Intel 320 is SATA II, the other 3 SATA III, you get 8 more GB out of the Crucial's than the Intel's, the 320 is rated the slowest but as utnorris mentioned in the real world it's doubtful you'd notice, they're all rated to last 1,200,000 hours of use, The Intel 320 only has a 1 yr Warranty, the other 3 carry a 3 yr Warranty.

IMO, I doubt you can go wrong w/ ANY of those 4 so pick the one YOU want, I chose the M4 because I thought it was the best bang for the buck, I haven't owned it long enough to honestly tell you much more than that.

Good luck,

German prices for comparison for 128/120GB models:
Crucial m4 about 150€ = 216US$
Crucial C300 about 190€ = 274 US$
Intel 320 about 175€ = 252 US$ (hey SATA II is outdated!!!)
Intel 510 about 223€ = 321 US$

Ok, good luck to all who don't get m4s.

P.S.: And good luck for all of you on the stormy eastern coast!

Yeah, anything not Sandforce based is going to be good. The reason I went with the 320 is because I got 160Gb drive for $200, it was the best bang for the buck. The reason I got rid of my 2 x C300 in RAID0 and went to a single drive was because the C300, like the M4, was having issues. I could not run those drives and another RAID array on any SB MB I tried including the Gene. It would eventually start giving me BSOD and then corrupt my OS array. Since going to a single drive I have not had any issues. This could have been more to do with the SB southbridge than the drives, but all I know is I was having issues that when I was x58 I did not.

Opinions matter little when the 510 is the only drive that has had no issues. You cannot say that for the Crucial or the Sandforce drives. To me that means it will be more reliable in the long run. That being said, I will restate what I said before, go with the best bang for the buck, if that means the M4, then do it.

EDIT: The Intel 320 OEM comes with a 1 year warranty, the retail, $5 more on Newegg, comes with a 5 year warranty.

Well I've officially pulled the trigger on the Gene. Ordered from Newegg last night. Had a 10% off Asus mobo coupon plus got in on a combo deal with Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM) which itself had $8 off... So total came to $235 for the board and Windows. Not too bad!

I stick another in for the 510.
The Intel storage software makes OS movement from an HDD to SSD so much easier. Nearly worth the price difference alone.
