Bought mine here, quick and cheap delivery, recommended place!

Hi, the Asus website is confusing when it comes to memory support.
Looking at for example at their X99-A mainboard specifications we see that it does not support ECC memory, but that we should also refer to the Memory QVL.
So we go into Support > Memory Support and click on the "X99 Series DRAM...
Default I/O size in HD Tune us only 64KB, increase it to 8MB and you should see a big increase.
It's also worth noting that if you don't perform a "full test" on the same options/benchmark page it's known to cause iffy numbers with SSD's.
Remember that HD Tune was developed for mechanical hard...
If you want a quiet 15k RPM drive I can recommend the Cheetah 15k.7 drives, I have one and it's at least way more silent than a WD Raptor 10k RPM drive.
That said it's a SAS drive so you need a SAS controller for it...
Report your issue to Samsung, because they are playing the game of holding their hands to their ears and pretending there exists no problem:
Q: Will there be a firmware update for the other Samsung TLC-based SSD models that have also demonstrated this read performance issue? If so, which models...
EnderW: It would be interesting to see if the physical sector size can be changed on your 730 like it can on the S3500, they are the same drives after all.
I don't have high hopes though, Intel is famous for not updating "old" drives firmware.
It's probably the best option for forcing Windows to...
Surprise surprise: Intel's "new" NVMe based SSD 750 1.2TB is beat by the Samsung SM951 AHCI drive in all relevant consumer tests in Anandtech's review
Well, it was not a surprise for me, except it does show much better numbers than what I pieced together intitally.
But then I found this, look...
Don't you see the error in your own text?
I wrote in my initial post that transfer speed is 321KB/sec for the 1.6TB P3700 when doing small I/O's
How much less consistent do you need the performance to be for you to accept it's bad?
ToddW2, please this isn't about performance at higher queue depths or I/O transfer sizes.
I said in my initial post "It's a benchmark which highlights performance of a corner case: IO performance at transfer sizes below 4KB."
All I'm trying to do is confirm if Intel are wrong in their...
Any server load will have a mix of both high queue depths and medium to low queue depths.
I just copied a large folder with many files to the Intel SSD 910.
The speeds ranged from insane down to 91KB/s
Any SSD developed for enterprise use is supposed to have a minimum sustained speed...
It's really slow at booting, and it's also slow at launching a browser with many tabs open.
Both actions that I would assume cause allot of IO activity below 4K.
Looking for example at the Windows folder there are over 50000 files below 4KB in size, and the Program Files folder has another...
Just providing my input on this.
The original Intel X25-M controller and it's minor updates in the G2 & G3 received critical acclaim and are really fast for consumer workloads.
The last drive released in that series was called Intel SSD 710 and is aimed for the enterprise.
All of these drives...
Well I'm not really sure it supports NVMe, it was supposed to according to the info posted at the SSD Summit 2014, however reading the press release below it seems a no :(
You need to have UEFI enabled in the BIOS and start the installation in UEFI mode
Settings > Advanced > Windows 8/ 8.1 Configuration:
Windows 8/ 8.1 Feature: Enabled (The system will switch to UEFI mode)
Please note that there is a bug with the Windows 8.1 installation DVD which makes it...
Hi, you can use the following method if you have one system where you had the drive installed, and that you have not wiped:
Download & run this BAT file: http://hem.spray.se/hanzzzon/HiddenDevicesDeviceManager.zip
It will open your systems Device Manager.
Next press "View > Show Hidden...
Yea sure, except all my cars have had this feature since I got a license 10 years ago?
There is a button called "News" you push it and it switches to news broadcasts when they air.
There is another for Traffic Alerts
When done it switches back to whatever you where listening to...
I have not bought the game, but I have played the original and really liked it.
I very much remember Valve saying that Portal 1 was just a "training ground" or similar wording about Portal 1, hinting that the second game would be much more difficult...
But most PC users are saying that the...
Yea tell me about it, computer is of course full of Viruses and shit too
First scanned it with Macafee Stinger from my BartPE USB stick (where I also took the Defrag screenshot)
It found 12 viruses
Then booted it up to the Windows install after my "fix" and installed Symantec Corporate...
I'll up you all one.
"Friend of a friend" left me this PC to fix
Had a "bluescreen problem" > turned out it was an in-progress installation of Windows he referred to as the "bluescreen" (deleting the installation files and restoring the boot.ini fixed that "problem"
They say a picture says...
I could care less for a DX11 patch really
Start by releasing a high resolution pack, or to begin atleast a texture pack which is not half the resolution of Crysis 1
Actually you know, their final comments here are spot on.
I just found this april fools kinda strange.
I really miss 3dfx, and anything nVidia release will (for me) never leave the memory that the 3dfx Voodoo brand has
I agree with one of the previous posters that said they could use the...
Wow, I didn't know the vacations in the US where so short
Guess I should be happy then, as I wrote in my previous post we get 4 weeks in the summer, and then one week (5 working days) to spend whenever you want to
And if you don't spend them they get saved
I actually have saved 3 such...
3 weeks is considered much in the US?
In most of Europe you get 5 weeks each year, 4 in the summer and 1 in the winter
Paid of course, I just had my first week of work after one month summer vacation here in Sweden :)
Oh, as to this prank, not very fun at all
He was in on it before he...
Are you being ironic?
Sure, their Visual Basic based POS systems are worst
But their hardware aint far behind
We have so many failures and everything has to be based on Siemens own proprietary communication protocols etc so you can't even stand a chance debugging it without buying Siemens...
Hmm, having Windows Terminal Server on a notebook feels like it somewhat limits the purpose of the notbook no?
Why not just use a 19" Rack server for that since that is what they are made for?
(Which will make it quite nice to connect to with that notebook btw)
