OS = Operating System; technically you can install it on any drive anywhere but C is standard (think 'dual boot': 2 OS; C for XP, D for W7)

Though ssd's have a limited amount of writes before they go bad. If u use them the way they are ment to be used they can live longer then a HDD.

So stop being afraid and start enjoying the speed ! ;-)

I use a M4 for my OS and BF3, everything else i throw on my WD HDD. Both are 6gb sata and my SSD is only a 128mb. Also there are a lot of tricks you can use to help with your SSD. Like turn off hibernation and so forth. Im really thinking of getting another one just for games.

SSD are not like they use to be, they will last for a very long time. By then you will probably have affordable 1gb models. Remember the days when B. Gates said " no one will ever use more than 256mbs" rolleyes.gif

EDIT: where in Iowa are you? My mom lives in Ottumwa wink.gif

How much did it help with BF3 loading? Just curious because I play and hate the load times (although I haven't played it with 8gb of ram yet either, its on it way with the ssd lol)

I have both 8GB 1600mHz RAM and a Crucial M4 256GB and I usually spawn as one of the first and quite often as the first in MP. BF3 really seems to benefit from an SSD, other games like Mass Effect however, do not.

Just ordered myself a Trooper and I need to change out the red fans for blue. What do you guys recommend for a fan that has blue leds and can work with the built in led off switch?

Well, you could get the Cooler Master SickloFlow, that should work, you might try BitFenix Spectre (Pro)'s, Antec TriCool's or Enermax Appolish fans if you don't like sleeve bearing, but I'm not sure they'll work with the LED switch.

And have you joined our platoon?! lol wink.gif Actually I seem to be one of the first in games even with my HDDs. I never thought that hard drive speed played much of a factor in that- always thought it was internet speed only.

I suppose I should have clarified... I know what the OS and all that that entails. I just meant when others say they use their SSD for their system's drive, I didn't know whether they meant they only have windows on said drive or if they put all their programs, documents, music, etc... on that drive, since doing that would seem to use up a LOT of 'writes'. LOL Now I've made myself out to be a total computer noob hahaha....

Well I've been eyeing up the BitFenix Spectre Pro LED and i noticed it mentions "on the fly light switching" but i cannot find anymore info on the plug headers or what that "switching" means. Anyone have these or know what that means? I've also seen the Enermax Applolish and those are really cool but pricey.

I have windows with programs on one ssd and games on the another one, my hdd is used as storage for games/movies etc.
And in life we are all noobs wink.gif
