Glad that you are finally going to get the chance to build your beast, it must have been killing you all those nice new parts just lying there screaming to be used. I don't think I could have stuck it this long. I am sure that it will fire up first attempt.
Talking about SSDs don't take all the blurb to literally and worry about it. I just defragged mine again as I noticed that the performance had dropped to 88% and although I wasn't worried about the fragmentation because it doesn't really have any bearing on SSDs I did want to get the performance to max. As I say I just ran PerfectDisk Pro defragger again and now the performance is back up to 99.7%. Now a lot of know it alls would die if they heard of someone defragging a SSD but there are things that they don't know as well.
DM, thanks for those positive and uplifting words...and yes, there have been times I wanted to just call in sick and spend the better part of the day ripping one system apart and putting together the new system [I intend to use the CM Storm Sniper Case that houses the Q9550 system that has been my primary system for a couple of years].
You know, it is amazing you mentioned the defrag in your last post. Last night, I began to think about why people say DO NOT defrag your SSD...then I thought about my System Mechanic Professional Software that I really like to use and I began to wonder if it was a bad idea to put in on the SSD. [part of the System Mechanic Professional has a Defragger utility built into it].
DM, have you any more thoughts on defragging/registry cleaning, etc. on an SSD? Are people against defragging because of this theory that it reduces the overall life span of the SSD? What is so wrong with defragging?
Please help me understand this if you can.
