I've learned that not all programs benefit from leaving traditional HDDs.
Also it's your rig. Do with it as you like man. It's your money and your stuff. I only try to help people prevent damage. That's all.
Yes and i appreciate that!
But you said yourself that you lost a lot of data when messing with the pcie, so i was wondering if you locked the pcie voltage at the same time? if you upped the frequenzy without locking the voltage, the motherboard may have done it for you.
Dunno, but i can't for the life of me understand how it can ruin something, at the worst it should make a bsod, or maybe corrupt a couple of files, but OS would crash the the system if it figured out something was wrong.
unless the pcie voltage was raised ofc, that could explain alot.
Edit: Also i noticed a big increase in both booting speed, and regular usage with this one. And after the pcie clock i sometimes don't even see the loading screen.
It made a huge improvement over both my samsung 840 pro and the intel x25 drive!
