post #4231 of 6382
I just received my new Crucial c300 128 GB. SSD!
I haven't broken the seal on the anti-electrostatic bag yet, though.
You see, NewEgg.com, in their increasingly slipshod fashion of packaging, put my little, $260 SSD in a manila envelope with the small pre-applied bubble wrap envelope lining, instead of a proper packing box with styrofoam popcorn or even wads of old newspapers!
The Crucial box itself shows no overt damage but I don't know whether I should take a chance on the drive itself possibly being damaged.
What should I do? Take a chance it arrived unscathed or immediately return it and demand one be sent in a properly protected package?
I don't know how tough these drives are. For all I know, UPS has special bins that they store packages such as this to help protect the contents.
I honestly don't know what to do. This is the 1st time I've ever had a problem with NewEgg packaging but I have heard of an increasing amount of complaints about this very thing.
What would you do?
I just realized that this isn't even close to being the proper thread for this but I'd still appreciate your thoughts and to start demanding whatever e-tailer you deal with to either package your items so you don't have to worry about them arriving intact. Especiall during the holidays when every single shipping company is swamped with excess traffic. Our computer components are too delicate and expensive to be treated in such a manner.

My C300 came the same way and it is perfectly fine. I know that the SSD's are much more resilient than their HDD counter parts. I'm pretty sure that you are ok and if you have a problem make sure to report it before 30 days and they will take care of it promptly. In some cases, they even take care of it after the 30 days if you tell them what's going on.

It'll be fine,
INSTALL IT
I installed my 60gig ssd and used my two WD Black hdds (sata3) in raid for my programs and user files then turned off indexing and page files to the ssd and set them to the SATA 3 drives then i install to the sata 3's all the programs and downloads etc so my ssd stays really nice and clean,

I would not raid ssd drives as they apparently loose performance radicly if you do (soming to do with NOT supporting TRIM though they say they do) so this way i can not overfill my drive

I have the corsair FORCE 60gig drive as boot (AHCI) and then had to use DISK MANAGER to set up my raid with the two WD RAPTOR drives i have though the SATA 3 ports i set the raid by its own controller

There are some good guides (if you choose this way) http://www.overclock.net/ssd/664738-...secondary.html

then this one (it works for any ssd the princible is the same) http://blog.corsair.com/?p=3989

Hi All.

I just built 2 identical sys's.
P6X58d Prem
I7-980x
12g Corsair DDR3
Crucial 128G SSD
Win7 Ult. 64bit

The first is up and running fine. The second is not. I cannot get the bios to save the config changes. Every time I restart the bios reverts back to default settings. I disabled Express Gate, Changed the Marvel controller to ACHI Mode, Changed Sata to ACHI mode only to have all revert back to default on restart. Does anybody have any ideas?

Update: I swapped out the PSU and the SYS Battery. Neither are the problem. I also limited my Mem to 1 stick. I am leaning towards a bad M/B. Any suggestions?

Thank You.

Thanks for the ideas sgilmore62, But neither seem to be the problem.
I do get this message at post.

Mem Ok succeeds in system booting
Enter bios setup menu and save memory settings or visit Asus site for latest bios.
Hit F1 to proceed.

The latest bios is already installed.

Update: I swapped out the PSU and the SYS Battery. Neither are the problem. I also limited my Mem to 1 stick. I am leaning towards a bad M/B. Any suggestions?

Thanks
