Should I upgrade to either CAS7 1600 or CAS9 1866? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ya I know I want one but I really do not want to reinstall Windows. It is just so tedious, but I am getting close to not caring anymore. I just want speed in PC. It is the same with my car. More speed is always better than less speed or less power. I always went nuts modding my cars, so why should this be Different?

As mentioned above, you will notice a huuuuge difference on SSD.
BTW, what car you modded?

Shoot I have had several mustangs My first was 91 5.0 that I built the motor in. I had aluminum heads on it when no one did back in the mid 90's and I had one of the first Vortech Superchargers for it. I then evolved it over the years with better heads, pistons, camshaft transmission suspension for drag racing. I did drag racing only. The peak of its performance was when it was putting 670 horsepower to rear wheels. This was back in 2001 when no supercars in production put out that much power to the wheels. It translated to around 750HP at the flywheel. I then had to sell it and I got a few others then my last one was a 2003 Cobra that was putting out around the same power. I sold that and got a more reliable but still fun car a couple of years ago. I now have BMW 135i that I have done several mods to. My buddy makes one of the more popular engine tunning devices for the BMW's It bumps the power from 300hp stock to 380-400. I also added downpipes and a methanol injection system to it since the gas here in CA sucks for making power. IT is more of a protection mod than a power mod for me. If run the race gas tune it will crank about 420hp to wheels which for a little Beemer is pretty good.

My next car will be a GTR though. I drove a couple and they are pretty fantastic. The new ones are much better than the 1st gen GTR in basically every way. I was going to go back to AMerican cars and get a vette, but I am not that old yet, so I dont qualify to buy one until mid-life crysis hits.

Damn!!! You pretty much have tried all sorts of cars. I'm a DSM lover. My weekend warrior is a 1991 Eagle Talon TSi with 457whp and 411Ft Tq and does the 1/4 at 11.57s at 123.1mph. I stopped modding cars because it took too much money and I just grew out of it.

I now go speeding in the form of GHZ and Vcore.....if you get my drift (pun intended).

Ya I know I spent plenty of money on my cars. The Talons are sweet. I had a friend with a TSi that was heavily modded. It was a fun car. The best time my 91 ran was 10.24@137mph. IT weighed about 3000lbs with me in it. On regualr street tire I was lucky to get mid 12's out of it.lol I used to race my friend with their bikes back then. the fastest one was a GSXR1000 and I was always on his tail and sometimes even edge him out. I think his bike was capable of 140mph in the 1/4 but he was not a great rider. He was average.

I stopped spending on my car and started spending on my PC. I am all about modding it for looks as well. I have a poor imagination though so it is hard. I am trying to decide if I want to mess with this case or Just try to build my own. I was also thinking about a Case Labs build like Juggalo has. I love the lighting mods. If I decide to Water cool the GPU's and do a loop for the CPU I want to go with UV I think. Not sure yet. I am goign to order some EL wire though. It looks like fun to play with. I have some lighted fans in my case now, but I am not sure I like it.
