Also, how do you have that ssd set up to run - did you move your OS and apps over? I've been thinking about taking advantage of SRT if/when I upgrade to Ivy Bridge.

EDIT: just found the edit button. I haven't been on this board in a while...

Thanks, it looks so much bigger in that pic, must be the glow.

Thanks GoodInk. Any alternative suggestions for top exhaust fan?

NZXT just came out with some new ones, and have read good things from mybadomen

They come in LED's too

This SSD doesn't use SRT to work, you can use it on any socket, including AMD and as long as your drive is under 2TB's it will work, the best part you do not need to reinstall your OS.

Here is a good review of it

I think there are going to be a lot of Cougar fan here, maybe someone will make a orange and black Scout.

Since the case won't be lit anymore, I'm already thinking of how to expose the new orange front fan! The issue is that my home is dusty so I'm hesitant to leave the intake filter less.

Put the filters on the inside of the fan, the fan will get dusty but the case won't. Or these

The Corsair Accelerator 60GB SSD cache drive. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It comes with a nice brushed aluminum adapter
A70F56.JPG?psid=1
The install was easy, just mount the drive and install the software then restart. First thing I did was test it with HD Tune, I wasn't very happy at first but it kept getting better and better. I did six runs total.
This is 2 WD Black 1TB's in RAID 0
460
The First run with the SSD, needless to say I was scared after this.
460
Run 2, looking better still not great
460
Run 3 more of the same
460
Run 4
460
Run 5
460
Run 6, looks pretty much just like run 5 so I called it good. I wasn't sure if I liked what I was seeing.
460
So seeing the drop in it speeds I thought I better run something different to see whats going on. Knowing I was getting this drive I downloaded AS SSD and ran it before installing the SSD. Man this thing takes ages to run on a HDD.
HDD's only
518
With the SSD
501
This is now showing I'm taking a hit in my write speeds but getting a big bump in my reads. 4k's are up through the roof.
Now for a little real world use, I fired up Paint Shop Pro X4 and it took 15 second to open. Then closed it and tried again, 3 SECONDS! eek.gif So far using it I can tell programs open faster but I'm not seeing increased speeds from the inside the programs. So time will tell if it was worth the money. So far I'm liking it, now a boot time test from when the Windows boot logo to the log on screen Before the SSD it was 38 seconds, now it's at 19 seconds biggrin.gif Once in Windows, its just ready to go, no waiting for everything to load, I'm happy so far thumb.gif

thumb.gif Still very impressive for something that super-charges the cache for your HDD!!! Good one Lt.Gen.!!!! Rep's+ thumb.gif

thumbsupsmiley.png This SSD is sounding a lot better to me every time I hear or read something about it. Keep us informed on your new
addition to your rig.. thumb.gif Sure look's like something I'm going to be getting soon. As long as the performance is there. I mean if it really doesn't
increase the reaction-time on most if not all apps.; then why bother.... rolleyes.gif

Robilat, how did you get that second front intake fan in there?

Just realized those are dedicated cache drives - for under $100!! :drool.gif:

I completely missed this development. Too late to return my RAM and get this instead! (I know they have different purposes.)

Time to start saving again...
