The Socket 939 Appreciation Club and Knowledgebase [Official] - Page 1971

Wow that in and of itself makes me leery of their services. I had a similar thing happen with the place I bought my A8N32 sli deluxe from. It took them a month to get me the board And I had to hound them for it.

I think I'll just use retailers I'm familiar with.

On another note, I finally got my 720 lapped. I went through 3 60 grit sheets just to get the coating off .Took her all the way up to 2000 grit. I'm still debating whether I should bother polishing it or not. I'll post some pics later.

I replied to the email and asked here if they shipped retail or OEM packages and how much it would cost to ship 1-5 games to 95206

Eternalenergy311, I have zero experience with these new drives but I did however do some reading. Some of the drives (could of been older drives) had really slow write speeds. Some users actually off loaded their pagefile.sys to a normal 3.5" drive because it was faster. Reads are obviously superior to a regular hard drive. The SSD's with MLC (multi-level cell) are the most common but are also slower. The SLC (single-level cell) drives have a longer lifespan and perform better versus MLC. It looks something like this:

SLC - More expensive. Longer lifespan. Faster. Smaller HD Size
MLC - Less expensive. Shorter lifespan. Not as Fast vs MLC. Larger HD Size

Perhaps Tator can explain more.

Good luck

Bold pretty much nailed it.

Windows 7 has advancements in the Pagefile system so that SSD's can have greater performance with them. (Microsoft is contemplating a Revised Windows 7 Netbook edition optimized for SSDs currently as Netbooks are a huge market)

The best options right now though, are offloading your Pagefile to a storage drive. Or, if you want a silent operation (IE, no moving parts besides lowspeed/quiet fans) then create a RAM Disk for your PageFile. Which would be helpful if you are running a 32Bit OS, as that would put your un-used RAM to work. And give it a job to increase system performance.

I can tell you honestly you'll make that Pally fry and die trying to hit extreme speeds with it.
Palomino core chips are inherently weak like a T-Bred "A" and will cave in quickly under the abuse. T-Bred "B" chips are much better and for the record, some extreme examples have gone well over 3.0GHz on LN2 and with Cascade cooling.
Any T-Bred "B" with an JIUHB or similar stepping with a date newer than 0339 should do very well, esp the XP 1700 and XP 1800 chips.
XP-M's are the ones to get if going for a Barton core, esp for a A7N with it's limited CPU voltage selection. Most any IQYHA, ADYHA or similar stepping chip should do well in a A7N. This particular one is a IQYHA 0408 date chip that's always clocked well for me. The BIOS in my A7N makes a real difference too, I'm using the Trats 1010 BIOS mod in my board and it's always done well so far. One more thing - If your board isn't a A7N8X Deluxe ver 2.0 or a A7N8X-E, it won't do nearly as well. All other versions aren't known as good clockers.

Temps for that run were at 15C under load so you know I had some great cooling for it at the time. I can do better but would need to get a few "Things" to do it on a consistent basis and I'm looking into that.

ramdisk is great if you have at least a gig of memory. I use it for firefox's cahce and have a 100 meg pagefile on it (dont worry, I have a 1500 meg PF on my storage drive)

I cant wait till I can afford a fresh 64 bit system and run an 8 gig setup with 2 gigs for my cache and pagefile. should make a killer respondsive system when its properly setup, even if it was only an AM2 system

Mattliston & Tator, with just 2GB of memory is a ramdisk still beneficial or would that sort of bog my system down? I'm assuming 4GB of memory would be a perfect amount.
