    Help 2500k OC

    Currently at 5.2GHz with 1.4v :) I got rid of the freeze when I disabled the virtu multimonitor mode. PLL voltage actually helped lower the vcore a little bit. Vtt at 1.25v Temperatures below 70º under prime95 Do you think it's safe for 24/7? I don't have many experience on chip's...

    I might do raid0 in the future. But atm I have more than enough. Another question.. I just got Asrock z77 extreme4. I have 2 intel sata3 ports and two sata3 ASMedia ASM106. I supose you would recomend the intel ones? Are those two ports shared (shared bandwidth)? As I plan to install another...

    1x 120GB SSD vs 2x 60GB RAID0

    I get your point. This is like overclocking your cpu above 4ghz, you won't notice anything, but you do it anyway :laugh: I will start with a single 60gb drive for the OS and some programs. I'm only using 30gb right now. Win7 and battlefield 3 included :D If I get bored, i will get another one...

    1x 120GB SSD vs 2x 60GB RAID0

    Thank you for the replys. I found on another store crucial m4 for the same price as patriot pyro. I've read that sandforce controllers have problems, are they serious? As I read in toms review, performance on raid0 scales almost linearly. Is trim supported on ssd raid0 setups yet? Will I lose...

    1x 120GB SSD vs 2x 60GB RAID0

    I'm going to upgrade to a sandy/ivy bridge computer. I need a drive for S.O's and maybe some games like BF3. I'm going to buy it here. I was thinking about adata s510. What are your thoughts? Will two be faster with raid0? Price is almost the same. Maybe another brand/model? Thank you :)

    How to survive the end of the universe

    Well, I really hope that universe will crunch itself. The idea of full entropy dislikes my a lot. Imagine, heat / infinite. What a depressing end.. If humans don't kill ourselves, we'll be like a plague. Spreading carbon life around the galaxy.. I can see some angry aliens, lol too much...
