    New, secondary drive disappears after wakeup from sleep mode

    That really doesn't solve the issue now, does it? I just don't need my to run my PC when not using it for a period of time.......simple enough. I used to run the water the whole time I was brushing my teeth as well........... That said. I put the drive in my HTPC and it wakes out of sleep no...

    New, secondary drive disappears after wakeup from sleep mode

    No. A rescan in Disk Management or Search for New Hardware doesn't work either.

    New, secondary drive disappears after wakeup from sleep mode

    So I've swapped from my Hitachi 2TB hard drive to 6TB Toshiba. Drive is gone as soon as I wake it up from sleep(Windows 10) and returns every time I reboot. I'm on a replacement after returning the first one, and this one does the same thing, so it's not likely a bad drive. Swapped out SATA...

    New ASUS X570 BIOS Update [02/05/2021] - Version 3405

    I found that loading my BIOS backup profile from a thumb drive worked, but not the saved one on the mobo, though they were both the same. Went from 1407 to 2407 an hour ago on an X570-F, so we'll see how stability goes.

    Panasonic VIERA Infinite-Black 50 Inch 1080p THX Plasma HDTV - $949 w/ Free Shipping

    True, for most not a concern, but it's a shame oblivious comsumers can allow companies to keep putting out a compromised product with no repercussions. :( And I'm sure you know you can't just "tune" the black levels back, calibration disk or not. I hope mine don't become too noticeable over time.

    Sandy Bridge CPU's not available from e-tailers

    Wow. I stated "I exchanged to an i7 950/X58 setup that booted right up and was running within 3 hours". That sentence includes from the exchange, travel time home, unpacking everything and all the little interuprtions in between. It also doesn't imply it took 2h59m59s. I shouldn't expect great...

    Sandy Bridge CPU's not available from e-tailers

    Funny how my "skilz" gots betters wit my new mobo and proc. :rolleyes: Do you really think Micro Center would tolerate someone doing that many exchanges without legitimately proving fault? Please don't answer, that's retorical.

    Sandy Bridge CPU's not available from e-tailers

    Yes, it is shit for many. I went through 6, yes 6!, motherboards(Asus, Gigabyte and MSI), 3 sets of RAM and 2 2500K's(one died in a day) in 5 days trying to get a stable system that could complete a full OS install. I knew everyone's name working returns at Microcenter by the end of that fiasco...

    SSD For OS?

    Nonsense. I've had 5 pairs of drives in RAID0 over the years and access time may have slowed .1 ms on some of the lesser on-board RAID chips compared to the single drive at worst. And since access times are unchanged, and STR has basically doubles as well with HDD's, how do SSD's scale better?

    Q6600 to i7-860 - Worth the $600, or better spent elsewhere?

    Upgrade the slowest part of your system IMO. HHD to SSD.

    ssd's are they reliable?

    If you're [Hard] :rolleyes:, go for it. Otherwise, do a search on it's developing problems to see if it's risk you want to take with your money.
