Yeap! But it's not what I meant. I was thinking about my current memory sticks Corsair low profile. I was convinced that removing them will be quite easy and I used hair dryer to make the whole process of removing them easier. I don't know what was the reason but it seems that heatsinks in my Corsair Ram are attached for good (very firmly ... I assume they are just glued permanently to RAM chips). And that is how I damaged my 1 memory module. wink.gif

SSD's are wonderfull as os drives, av-software and other programms you run a lot.

What you install to it depends on the size you have. Mainstream are 128GB ones atm, and that will be more than enough for os/av/other.
A 64GB would be doable, but then only os / av and you'd be wise to move your documents folder to the 3TB disk in that case.
But that all depends on the os you want to use: 64GB would be just enough Windows 7 / 8, but Windows XP would fit on a 32 GB one with more than enough room to spare. The same goes for the various open source Linux distros ou there.


The 3TB could be used for other software that doesn't need the speed and/or just takes up a lot of space, could be used for download folders and of course used for backups (either with the Windows back-up manager or programms like Norton Ghost).

Cheers!

I thought it will be very easy. So, I watched a few tutorials and tried to remove the aluminium heatsink. It seems that my Corsair low-profile RAM is very sensitive or heatsinks are just glued to ramchips for good. I just don't really know because it seems that there are no adhesive tape there like in high profile memory sticks. Anyone knows how to remove this heatsink?

So, there is a question for you.
I was wondering about buying [ RipjawsZ ] F3-17000CL9Q-8GBZH (2Gx4) but then I thought it would be nice to have 16 GB of memory and I saw this
TridentX [ TDX ] F3-2133C9D-16GTX and thought to myself: nice wink.gif
Any recommendations ...
@Mistral Are those Tridents you have ? I can see tested voltage is 1.6, so how about their overclocking capability?
The ripjaws 2133 are excellent.Cl9 @ 2133, cl8 @ 2000mhz, and cl7 around 1750 or so. You can get em for $50 when there on sale.

Then you'll have plenty of room for the os + a whole bunch of other programs!

PS - maybe I'll be getting an 830, 256GB a in a few weeks, the notebook upgrade kit to replace the 128GB Crucial M4 in my notebook. The Samsung 830 has a very good reputation.

Don't have r2.0, but can say new bios' can change things when overclocking, quite a bit. 1 to another has change my spd ext's. in bios and i've had to manually re-enter them, as well as my clock speed thresholds. A newer bios isn't always a upgrade. Looking to fix 1 specific bug can cause other issues.

I am probably asking a stupid question here and you probably cant, but i will ask anyway can you flash rev 2.0 bios on rev.1 board? Also which bios do you guys recommend for asus sabertooth 990fx rev 1 board.

in behalf of the people in this thread... without being rude or something like that... i think (99,9% sure) that it is impossible to flash a rev2.0 bios on a 1.0....

you can't. they are two different boards. the only thing interchangeable are utilities like asus suite and chipset drivers. i would just go with latest bios.
