Basic SSD setup question. - Page 2

Thank you all. On a side note, How are you liking Windows 8.1? Any tips?
I am in IT and I have Win 8 on an infrequently used laptop. Seems nice when I use it.
Otherwise, my is an all Win 7, server 03 and 08 shop.

I don't mind it too much. I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to 8.1 and then used Classic Shell to get the start menu back to the way it looked in Windows 7. Some people complain about it crashing all the time but I have yet to experience a crash. Your milage may vary though. It also gives you an easy way to uninstall all of the BS that comes pre installed which I liked.

A Table OS don't belong on a desktop, also, the touchscreen feature which is the main feature of the OS doesn't lend itself to a desktop PC. Stick to Win 7.

I agree, as someone who has used both I would say if you can avoid windows 8.1, do so and stick with Windows 7.

Correction:
The reason I'm going with Win 8.1 this time is that it has a much cleaner look for my living room PC. I play games and do other stuff on a 46" LCD TV.

Discussing Windows 7 vs. Windows 8.1 is like discussing politics. You're going to get a thousand replies, and everybody's right in their own mind. My perspective is that Windows 8.1 is vastly superior to Windows 7 in the areas of virtualization, memory management, self-healing OS features, networking optimization, storage improvements, and of course that wonderful Metro interface (sic). At this point, Windows 8.1 is a stable, mature, and technically superior product.

You still find people driving cars with carburetors though - so take that into consideration when somebody tells you that Windows 7 is superior and there's no reason to upgrade. LOL.

Let's just say that XP and Win 7 are to date the best operating systems Microsoft has made. You have to look at the whole picture.

Hammong, Ditto!

Everyone I have another question. Should I connect my H100i to the radiator fans of should I connect my case fans to the motherboard? If I connect the fans to the H100i then I have to use the Corsair software to monitor those fans and Gigabyte software to monitor the other fans. Worth it?
