    Yeah, if my 500gb drive blew I would be pretty upset. I wouldn't mind getting a RAID 1 array, but I only have 4 serial power connectors and they're all used up already :/

    Hat, if you need any molex to SATA power connectors, I think I have a few.

    Thanks, but I don't really need any. In order to need a power adaptor, I would have to buy a HDD first... :laugh:

    Also, I can use molex on my Raptor, so that could free up a spare SATA power connector, so I really don't think I'll need one :laugh:

    The Time Warner folks came out and gave us a new cable modem...we've had various issues in the past with the internet connection, but it's reasonably cheap and fast so we deal with it :laugh:

    Will you go give your opinion in my thread where I'm looking to upgrade my WCG setup?

    Damn nice -- after you do one quick thing. Go to Advanced --> Preferences, and select "Use at most 100% of processor time". It looks like you have it set to 60% currently (default), so you could be getting almost double the PPD/work done

    Fits, why isn't it set to 100%? Temperature reasons?
