    outside of germany, maybe:eek:
    was the cheapest SSD which could be trusted in my opinion... do you think, it was no good buy?:)

    what one do you got yourself?

    nah, its the same price as in denmark i'd say,

    so yeah i think its pretty good, supertalent should be quite nice afaik:D

    i got a demo version that havent been used,
    this one http://www.komplett.dk/k/ki.aspx?sku=585379

    got it for around 65€ , + they have support for TRIM with this one afaik,

    i saw the 64gb Kingston SSD, but i didnt wanted it, because its based on a Samsung controller i believe, whereas the Supertalent has an Indillinx Controller. It was much of a choice "do i take capacity, or speed?" i chose the speed,tho the capacity would have been cool too!:D

    awesome deal on your side tho, you can get more expensive HDDs, that are slower!:)
    for this price(and an unused demo version:p) i would recommend everyone to get an SSD!:rockout:

    wanna share some benches, when our drives arrive?:)
    im interested, how different they may perform!

    well im not into all the technical stuff regarding ssd's, but i just couldnt say not, and idc if it has 20mb read/write more or less, then i would rather have double the sixe:D
    but we are all different:D thank god for that haha:laugh:

    and yes , what should we use? HDtune or? i dont know any other programs haha

    I have informed myself a little about different controllers, overclocked caches and special Flashcells, so im not much more informed, only a bit:laugh:
    nevermind, that wont be a problem:p

    i also have to admit, the extra space is much more worth, considering usefulness!:)
    but i couldnt resist the Urge, to get the fastest i could get for my money:eek:

    oh there are great differences! Lets say... the SSD speed the manufacturer claims, is usually taken from a single, best running benchmark. its as much lie, as fan specs:laugh:
    Also, is difficult to measure, compared to normal HDDs, its like comparing a Lithium-Polymer accumulator, to an ordinary NiMH or NiCad accumulator. You cant simply do that, because its hell of a different, much more advanced tech.

    i believe we should stick to AS SSD Benchmark, it was made to compare SSDs.
    furthermore i would recommend PC Mark Vantage, and HD Tune and ATTO as comparance Benchmarks.
    We could even name it "Entry Level SSD´s compared" and start a new thread, if you like to!;)

    I can see you have haha :laugh:
    but sure, if that is what you wanted then that is what you should get imo:rockout:

    and yes i know all speeds published by the companies are not so accurate, but it should be somewhere near it :cool: + this ssd is only a test to see if i like it in the long run, and then i will go for a 100gb+ model in the future.
    or 2 of these in RAID 0

    i will find those programs and start downloading them so i have them ready when it arrives :rockout:

    and yes i think it would be good to make a seperate thread, so we dont use some thread that isnt related to the subject:D

    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.

    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?:)
