But that's my point, what is actually mediocre about it. Every review has stated it was a bit over priced but well worth the investment. Not one mentioned faulty parts or subpar parts. So what is the actual risk here, and what is it based on. Ripple is a quality issue as far as extremes not reliability or safety, unless it is way out of hand ( I Know dirty power can decrease the life of products but it has to be more than just a little to do so). Like I said, I have used them for years and not one reliability issue at all. I get your point and am not saying your wrong but there are levels where a lot of these PSUs that are getting flak because they aren't top-o-line that they are being labeled poor or not recommended but will suffice with little to no risk of the kind of failure a lot of people like to fear others into believing. Honestly it is like a Ford Focus, not the best overall but quality enough to get the job done and last a very long time.

This PSU debate is as old as the hills. My take is that I have over $1500 of components in my rig and will spend a few extra bucks to make sure that I have a PSU that I have the utmost confidence will power and protect that investment. Having said that the PSU's built today as a whole are far superior to what it was a while ago and folks like Corsair are not going to put out products that will be inferior and damage components on purpose. Units like the GS and CX series PSU's are intended to be solid but designed for a smaller budget and maybe less of an enthusiast lean than the more expensive units. I have had far less quality PSU's in my system before I upgraded to very high end stuff and never had an issue, I even have a Ultra LSP 750 pro which everyone said was crazy but it never skipped a beat. I search for reviews everywhere for it and found none that actually backed up their claim that it was a bad unit. As soon as I upgraded to the 8350 and a CHVFZ I upgraded to a Seasonic platinum PSU and this was purely for peace of mind. $1500 is a lot of money for me to spend on a hobby and I was not about to dink around with that. I am sure the mid-range PSU's like the GS and CX are solid enough to get the job done so if I had too I would use them in my system I just chose to go with top of the line again for peace of mind. By the way I got mine on E-Bay for about $100 so it wasn't really very expensive, just $30 more than my the Ultra LSP.

If you can get 32gb then go for it but it depends what you want to use it for, eg if just to speed up browsing you can allocate 200mb per browser, and also temp files. If you want to load whole programs then you'll need as much as the program occupies eg BF3 will take up 20gb+
Just download the Ramdisk program install it following instructions and you can use a program mover like symmover to move it into the ram disk

Here's a good one http://www.softperfect.com/products/ramdisk/

Yip another 2133 CL11 kit. It got a little beat up in transit but they are all good! These are V3.24 so that means they are Micron IC's. They are different from my original kit which are v4.21 which are Samsung IC's. Now I know my Sammie was happy running 2400MHz 9-10-12-31 1T. I hope these Micron's can match it! I have downclocked them to 2000MHz for the time being until I rebuild my loop and do all my overclocking again!

Old Sammy based kit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

New Micron based kit.

Cool I have 2 sticks of those now I'll have to check and see what version I got

I reran the test tonight just to be sure. It didn't lock up, but Heaven kept freezing. Looking at the performance log in PrecisionX it looks like voltage to the graphics cards was dropping significantly and causing throttling in both the GPU and the GPU memory. Weird. It wasn't temp related - neither card was budging past ~62C. Just seems to confirm suspicions that it's the PSU. It doesn't exhibit any behavior like that when it's either IBT AVX or Heaven by themselves.

Thanks guys. I'm going to contact Corsair tonight.

what card is that??
post #33297 of 67332
I run 2x MSI GTX 660s. They both use the Twin Frozr III cooler. They run very cool and are very quiet until they hit 60C, at which point they ramp up and the temps almost never budge much past that. Card one gets a few degrees warmer, but card two has room to breathe and doesn't have much trouble.

is that overclocked??

it's kinda long shot but stabilize your GPU OC as well.
post #33299 of 67332
Only one of them is overclocked, and only by 23MHz to bring it in line with the other. They run at 1163MHz steady in games. I don't overclock them much specifically to avoid throttling since the 660s have a low power target. Heaven by itself never causes that drop in voltage or GPU/memory clocks.

A downside to Ramdisk is large hibernate files, so you want to take that into consideration if using a smaller SSD. Basically just set up the minimal amount you need. You can always copy the data back to the SSD and make the ramdisk larger.
