Samsung 830 or Plextor. (Or wait for the Samsung 840, theoretical). Their durability:performance ratio is extremely high.

My RMA has been completed, unfortunately the UD7 has now been discontinued so Ebuyer will not be getting any more in, I have had to get a refund and spend another £40 get one from Scan but the good news is I will have it tomorrow.

At least you got your money back, not so bad, yeh? Congrats on soon to be fix'd. biggrin.gif

The 840 isn't such a big improvement of the samsung 830. its just a bit better, but also more expencive at launch. the 830 is just as cheap as the M4 in my country, so thats the one I should pick.
plextor and intel are way to expensive, and the m4 is good enough, but you will notice the difference between a m4 and a 830 and the difference is allmost nothing (in price).

so go for the 830.

edit: I'm talking about the 840. not the 840 pro, which is now about the best ssd on the market on a sata interface for consumers. but you do pay for it (1,4 dollars per gig)

I'm back up and running on the UD7.
A funny thing I thought I had killed this new one when I was tidying the cables as I booted it up and received the dreaded 88 error again, turns out I hadn't plugged the 8 pin EPS back into the extension.

OH, so you got another UD7? Awesome!!

I think the 990FXA-UD7 is under rated. Yes, it may be over kill for some, but those that need it. Its awesome.

Yeah the place I had ordered from was out of stock, so I had to go to another store and pay an extra £40 to get one, which I have since found was their last one (the UD7 is being discontinued).

I just had a random freeze at start-up of my pc. I also had a few lags in my system since the new beta bios, anyone else experienced it?

I would revert back to your last known BIOS version to confirm that the new beta is quirky.. I would bet it is.

It is not common. i just had this twice, in a time of 3 weeks. not really worth the effort to flash it back and set my OC's back in my bios.

Should I expect the bios update will make things better, or am I going to need to compensate for this vdroop by raising vcore to something much higher in the bios?

You have to set the LLC to "High and/or Ultra High" to prevent that, when you do that, it will only have a 0.05v difference with what you manually set it to. This is only for rev 1.1 or 1.2, rev 1.0 doesn't have LLC.

hi all, I was lucky enough to have my 990FXA-UD5 donated to me, the only drawback is that there is no back plate with it to secure to case and tidy up the appearance, does anyone know if these plates can be bought seperately?

Cheers
