New to OCN

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to say hello. I finally created an account on these forums because they seem to be the best for PC enthusiasts.

That's my machine in my avatar. It's running a swiftechh 20-220 water cooling loop, cooling a core i7 2600k @ 5.0ghz (I know overkill biggrin.gif).

I've currently been reading alot about SSD's and I see people on these forums seem to love the crucial M4's. Im currently running a 60gb vertex 2, but I think I'll wait until I see the new offerings this year before I make any decisions.

Best is only the right word if you're a complete bore or a masochist. Or just stupid.

Welcome.

Welcome to ocn! I recommend you stop reading about the SSDs, lest you end up with a sweet, sweet corsair performance pro 3 at a fantastic price before you know it

Thanks everyone!

It's funny, after reading everything about SSD's, I sort of ended up wanting a corsair performance pro because it uses the marvell controller, or the plextor which is basically the same drive.

DO tell more about this great deal...
