Went in from the garage last night and my so called hot rod computer isn dead, as in no start, nothing.

Tried the basic troubleshooting routines, the power supply starts up when unplugged from the board and the jumper is set.

Plug it into the board, and nothing.

Looks like I'll be picking up an 8 Core AMD and new Asus MB on Staurday. cheers

So much for fun parts for the month. Sad

I'd love to run SSD's, but i need them in sizes of a terabyte or more, and so far, i can't get them.

as it stands I have 4 terabytes in total, and 1/2 of that is full.

I wish I was technologically inept to run 4tb. Everything I use ends up overheating or being jogged too hard.

You may want to re-examine that statement. I don't consider myselft "technologically inept "

I run 4 tb of HD, to do that with SSD would be extremely expensive

I dont think I worded that right. Sounded right.

But yea, SSDs are expensive as all get out. I could have gotten a 320gb HDD for the price of my 20gb SSD. A 1tb would be ridiculous.

I have a small SSD and have had it for ages, well worth the money. Mines just big enough for the operating system. And super fast BOOT.

That's to big, no wonder you think they're expensive. I think mines a 64GB it's plenty.

I was told my version of WIN7 would need at least 60-something gb to run properly. My laptop had a 320gb HDD originally, and the more room on a drive the faster it usually goes (dunno if that applies to SSDs). I used to run 250gb and I think a 120gb but they filled up too fast.

It's only for the operating system. All storage goes to my 2TB discs. Normal Sata-2 discs.

Yea maybe it's 128GB, I got the smallest and fastest I could have for the operating system.

I have two 64gb SSD - Patriot TorqX II's. I don't use them for data storage at all, but one for OS and essential software and the other for games. I have one other smaller set of torqx II I use for Linux in a RAID array. I think I paid 75 dollars a piece for the 32gb TorqX and about 90 for the 64gb.

Smart, I should look at that, I have to do a full wipe and install soon anyway. Also need more RAM. I have a dead stick.

Move the paging file, print spool, and user libraries to a mechanical drive, turn off indexing and last access timestamping... it will fly
