So go the SSD in on wednesday(yes i know long time no post) and wow, boots soo much quicker, i dont have to wait for anything, WEI when up to 7.1(lame its saying my gpu is holding system back, really???? a 4870x2 is hold my system back ) Had a raptor and still say a nice performance increase going to an SSD, if you already havent got one, get it, i promise you wont regret this purchase, it will increase all Windows speed.

Been awhile since I've posted as well. I would LOVE to get a SSD, but too expensive atm. I can understand that your video card is holding your score back, I only get a 7.4 with 2 Radeon HD5770's in CrossfireX.

I've got my 965 @ 3.913, running stable, my equivalent anyway (10x 20 passes of IntelBurn Test using standard) and it's idling at around 28°-32°C. It will get up to around 50°C. during the tests, but I can deal with that.

well, you need to get one when as soon as they are at a price you think is reasonable , you can tell the difference between the SSD ans regular harddrives when you are accessing them, its like night and day difference, SSD load apps pretty much instantaneously, and the raptor takes at least three ssecs and the other two drives are about 5 secs,

I also wish on a SSD but i think when i get 1, ill just get 2 and put them in RAID 0. They will need to be 120GB drives though, $$$$. I could maybe get away with 2 60GB drives but i dont want to cut it too fine. I use my current RAID to install my OS, any apps and games (Which can get quite big). hence the 240GB partition above the 12gb. I currently am using about 150 - 200GB of my current 500GB Raid setup.

eh, i understand about the space issue, but i was only planing on using the SSD for the OS and some apps. Games and the Page file would go on my raptor drive.

As for running the SSD in raid, eh i dont think i could give up trim support for maintaining the speed of the drive as when i bought it.

My next upgrade is going to be the Phenom II X6 1090T, after that, prolly a new video card(6870x2 or 6970 equivalent) and then a G3 version of the Intel SSD(running G2 now)

I think its worth having trim support.

LOL, i just googled it. I think it is worth having but you can also get manual trimmers that im sure will work on RAID. Intel has officially enabled TRIM with their new BIOS Chipset Updates. AMD wont be far behind.

As soon as I can get a 120GB SSD for around $100 I will, but otherwise, I don't mind waiting another 15 secs for windows to load. To me it's like passing someone on the highway, just to turn off in a mile. It's like, "Really, that got you so far!" I don't think I'll be upgrading my computer for some time. There really isn't much out there now, that I use, which takes advantage of just the quad core, so I really don't see the need to upgrade to a hexa core. Same with my 2x 5770. I run all of my games with ZERO lag, and I can't see games becoming much more advanced in the next year or so. So, I would probably upgrade the cards next year or the year after.

Just finished a run of Prime95 @ 3.6GHz

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1133202

I noticed there is a 5 degree difference in the LCD poster reading and CPUID HW monitor. I wonder which is more accurate ? 50 Celcius max but everytime I checked it was acound 48 C . I wonder if this leaves room to try for 3.8 or maybe even 4 GHz
