alright now thats settled and is my new choice thanks CB :mrgreen:

 

any important information i should know about the SSD? i already know defragging is not good so i wont do that. but will virus scans and spyware scans be bad for it as well?

 

should i put the paging file on a seperate drive? i have a laptop HDD lying around if i need to use it just for the paging file.

 

and whatever i download from the web i can set to go to my Raptor drive ill be using for gaming

 

SSD = No defrag...

Spyware/Malware/Antivirus scans = O.K.

Paging file = If you want to put it on a separate drive, o.k....otherwise it'll be fine on the SSD.

awesome. one more thing do you know what typical life will be on the drive with little to no extra downloading or moving files around?

just use it like a normal drive, except no defragging, and don't run loads of speed tests on it and it'll last for years.

 

yes there are guides on the net for best setup advice (mostly old outdated advice and not needed now.), but to be honest i'd just install and use it as if it was a normal drive, let windows 7 look after the maintenance of it.

 

Windows XP and Vista do not support TRIM. If you convert a computer running these versions of Windows to an SSD, then you also need to install software from the SSD manufacturer that will issue the TRIM commands.

i checked them IG

the 24 pin mobo, 8pin cpu(says cpu on connector), and 2 6+2 pcie plugs are coming straight from the power supply. everything else is modular.

 

upon some of my own research, says the 8 pin cpu is compatible even though the rounded pins and squared pins dont match. says there made like that to work with most motherboards. it plugged in like a charm too.

 

i have not powerd the rig up yet. gonna get some shut eye. will finish build tomorrow. only lack mounting the Corsair H100 to the top of my case and of course throw the MX4 thermal paste on the cpu spread and apply heatsink. then im done just have to install windows

Big joe, Kinda want to see what that rig can do. I just spent like 100 bux to get a new 970 board and 8 gigs of ram for my 955 i already had. got it at 4 gigs on air right now. would have been relatively close to what the 965 u were looking at would get. i'll race ya! lol (don't have ssd though *sad face*)

edit: on a side note i downloaded coretemp and shows my cores running around 8-9c i dunno about that. even if under little to no load

 

Mine idles around [email protected], so I'd say that yours is correct for the larger cooler.
