I understand and take your recommendation of CM VS very seriously. But i was just curious if CM VS 550W will be enuff for overclocking as i said above tongue.gif

Like if i plan to overclock i7 4770k to 4.2-4.5 GHz

And may take up the voltage of R9 280x (which is a rebranded 7970),

will the PSU (CM VS 550W) still cover all of that?

If anyone can say if it will do, Phaedrus would know. Its not like he built or designed that model himself now rolleyes.gif

A definite answer would be great. Would suck if i start overclocking and find out the CM V550S is not enuff.

I can get the CM V650S , just want to be sure i have power to cover overclocking smile.gif Thank you all for your help. I may sound really stubborn, but i have to be sure of things.

550 is enough

2. If Ramdisk is faster than SSD, would it not be good for me to go with ALTERNATIVE II? Ill be having a pretty fast HDD for OS (velociraptor) and 32 GB of Ram (faster than SSD for Gaming).
3. Assuming Ramdisk alternative is significantly cheaper... is it not good idea to go with it?

Please ask questions if you need more info to evaluate if Ramdisk build is wise choice for me or not.

Thank you smile.gif

--- 1. How safe is Ramdisk operation? Is it unstable (in it´s infancy) or has it become pretty stable and good to use?

A RAMDisk, generally speaking, has been used for decades. I remember using them myself in the 1980s/1990s. RAM itself is extremely reliable, and extremely fast. It only has been recently that RAM has been extremely cheap.

-- 2. If Ramdisk is faster than SSD

I've seen ramdisk software benchmarked at over 10,000 MB/s. Speed varies based on a lot of things, but one of the most important things is tight timings in your RAM. That being said, I would imagine RAMdrives in 3,000 - 10,000MB/s+ whereas SSD's peak at ~550MB/s.

-- 3. Assuming Ramdisk alternative is significantly cheaper... is it not good idea to go with it?

If you're somebody who needs faster loading games, programs, web browsing, etc., then you SHOULD buy it.

Now the question you should be asking is this: How will you use the ramdisk, and what features would YOU like on it to be most useful? Also, in the absence of those features, would the ramdisk still be useful enough to warrant purchasing it?

DDR3 RAM prices here in Denmark is higher then they have been in the last 2 years

So cheaper then ever no
