    If half of that is right, what people state, we both will be very happy,i believe!:D
    SSD´s in Raid should also be very nice with the right SB, but i wouldnt use raid 0... its very easy to damage the array as you know:)... i would prefer raid 1, tho that costs you some space;)

    nice, would be cool! finally im able to do that, SSD´s have come down quite a bit in price till now!:rockout:
    Im looking forward to do a dual bench with you! :D

    haha i guess so :laugh:
    yeah they are wild things, but i think that the performance might get crippled with the onboard raid controller when were at those speeds?

    will you be making the thread? i think you should start it, you seem to know just a tad more about it than i do haha :laugh:

    btw, new case

    or i havent got it yet, but got some pics in the mail today, it should arrive next week:D

    love that its made of alu, has room for 5x120mm fans, + it has ALOT of room compared to other cubes, but its also bigger than others:D

    The best way to drop temps on stock coolers like yours is to replace the TIM with even cheapo DeepCool silver TIM mine dropped 9 degC but with better TIM Gelid GC2 i got a whole 15degC idle and load with the fan on auto

    Tough choice between the Raven02 or Obsidian 800D both excellent cases.


    Had a thought about the pic and came up with a good quote:

    "In my day we used all the parts of the SSD, that ment the box too!"

    its a NZXT rogue,

    but you have to get a used one, its like no one has them in stock anymore
    http://www.nzxt.com/products/rogue/
    i was lucky to find a used one for cheap because the dvd cage is broken, but idc since i use my usb stick for win install,
    it only takes m-atx, but i've seen a few mod it to ATX, but then you wont have the removable mb tray anymore
     
    computertechy says thanks.

    you def can, + it can fit you 5970 in there, i had a 5870 in there without a problem:D

    and there was like 10cm room behind it haha.
    you could go for a 785g board, should be nice:D

    Depends, when you plan to do raid, your onboard controller will probably lag you out by a bit.
    The stuttering and hanging problems, that happened to even single SSD´s a while ago, when it was the OS drive,should have vanished with the newer drives technology;)

    alright, if you like to, i could use my eeeeendless wisdom, to open the thread:laugh:
    just hit me up, when you got the drive!:)

    I really love that Rogue! i must have one my one, really!:rockout::rockout::rockout:
    how is it moddable to atx?:)

    i'm getting this
    Sapphire 5850, but i cant find ANY review on that specific model, i would like to know if the voltage can be raised, but if not ill just return it and get a reference one instead
    [​IMG]

    looks like the XFX one has a good cooler, i like those with the middle fan instead of the others

    Any of the 5850s and 5870s that have the fan centrally located use the Vapor-X pcb which does not have voltage control.

    Never messed with water so don't know. Though, I would guess that any full block that works on the Vapor-X would work on those but I would check with the maker just to make sure.
