    its an awesome PC, i love it. of course i have shockwave flash crashing issues on windows 10, but thats nothing to do with the PC. I have tried the usually fixes everyone talks about. still crashes every once in a while.

    I suppose i could put my old 4GB x 2 sticks back in also, to make a total of 24GB. If the new ram doesnt run any faster anyway.. not that I need 24GB.. but it sounds cool anyway.

    20% off Samsung 840's including Pro's

    i was disappointed in the fact that my 840 PRO wasnt any faster than my old 830, but still glad I got the deal on it. I also made sure my SATA cables are 6GB rated and also in the proper ports in my MB. The chipset controlled SATA3.

    20% off Samsung 840's including Pro's

    after enabling "rapid" on my Samsung Magician software, my average reads went up 60MB. Now they are 360MB/s or so. so the Samsung has 100 MB/s more average read than your Corsair above. Which is more important than burst for sure.

    Compared Samsung 830 series to Intel 530 series

    Samsung 830 256GB vs Intel 530 240GB I was disappointed that the Intel was a lot slower, i guess i didnt research enough first. Always Samsung from now on. Disk indexing is off on both C and D, dont know anything else to improve it. I AM running in that AHCI mode. The Intel even dropped to...
