I never knew that. Thanks for the help. Too bad I already ordered the bracket. Oh well was only $12 after shipping.

You are most welcome, but I would not consider buying a new one a waste. SSD prices are dropping and now you will have room for four drives, and only have to use two drive bays to do it.

I JUST realized that you can put two SSDs in one bay. Mind = blown. Now it's tempting to RAID 0 two Agility 3s... thinking.gif

I like it becouse you can drop the bottom bays, and still have room for three drives. I see you are using the Agility 3, and was wondering how you like it. I have two Vertex 2 drives and they have worked very well for me.

I like it a lot. It's very snappy. Boots are ~10-13 seconds after you see the windows logo start to piece together and firefox and MS office 10 open instantly; even right after the desktop is visible.

One weird thing though is the page file. When it's on the SSD I get page file BSOD's about once every 2 days. When it's on my storage drive it's rock solid. With 8GB+ of RAM it's mostly a non-issue though.

Back to the 690II, has anyone dealt with CM customer service regarding this case? I accidentally knocked-over a box of screwdriver bits and the screwdriver itself while shaking the case and they ruined my window. Two hairline cracks and tons of gouging. Polishing compound and buffing doesn't even heal them fully. I asked to buy a new nVIDIA window/side panel but I don't know what to expect. When I e-mailed the CM Store about this problem they never replied or even acknowledged receiving my e-mail. confused.gif

Amazon.com: Cooler Master CM 690 II Transparent Acrylic Side Window Panel RA-692-KWN1: Electronics

I'd do that if i had the normal case, but I like my green nVIDIA claw window a lot. Combine it with green fans w/ white LEDs and it's drool.gif

If CoolerMaster fails me I'll start calling custom acrylic shops to see if they can match the color and do the tiny step-down that makes it sit perfectly flush with the steel.

Thank you for the feedback on your SSD drive. I set my page-file on my SSD drive to 4096-mb minimum and the same for maximum 4096-mb. I have never had a problem. Just a bit of feedback on what has worked well for me is all.
