Looking at the 120GB SSD Corsair Force myself. Let me know what it's like ;)

I just replaced all my fans with Akasa Ultra Quiet Vipers. Surprising how much cooler my PC runs. I also dropped in 12GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz and ordered a steelseries mouse mat as I liked Snappers one.

The firmware on the V1's was FUBAR but the V2's are supposed to be solid and fast as fuck :)

I'll let you know :)

I'm inheriting my mates H60 corsair hydro cpu liquid cooler soon :) so only the Gcard will be blowing. The case has a huge 200mm top fan and one 120mm front fan and it's cool and quiet.

crucial m4 is the best ssd by far, every test done across all the different ssd's the m4 comes out on top.

I don't know if you can read this thread But its a completely independent test carried out by the overclockers forum.

I'm not sure if it's the best, but it was for a good price, speed and the reviews were pretty good.
I'm liking corsair stuff. Case, memory, headset, cpu cooler (soon).


The best SSD's out there atm are the PCI-e ones, but the cost is huge.

You guys seem to get a boner for these SSD's,what's the deal?
I assume they are fast but how much difference do they make in applications/games etc?
Looks like a lot of money for a small drive to me.
I think I'll stay a platter man.

A spinning disk is not always spinning Hughie, so to access data it not only has to spin up, but it then has to move the needle to the correct point to start accessing the data.

In an SSD, its just flash memory so there is no spinning up time, and no moving parts such as a needle required, so its much much quicker at accessing data.

Because of this, current mechanical hard drives struggle to reach about 1/5 and even 1/10 the speed of an SSD.


ALSO, THEY ARE WELL MINT AND COOL INNIT!

I guess I'm not cool because I don't get it.
I'm not in so much of a rush that I need to shave 30 seconds off my boot time.

So what do you do? Put the O/S on the SSD and a few games? These drives are too small to cope with a fraction of my games collection.
