    Is TRIM overrated?

    well, if you do secure erase for your ssds, you will get 90% of the performance back. first make a image of your system drive then, breakup the raid configuration and then, secure erase the drives. finally setup raid and restore the image to your raid drive...

    OCZ living up to reputation, Vertex 3 BSOD

    Well I felt sorry for you. I have exact same drive in raid 0 as you. However, I have the P8P67 Pro board... My drives still have the 2.02 firmware...never update to 2.06.... So far, I have no problem with them in raid. I like them, it is over 1000MB/s read and nearly 500Mb/write.... If you...

    4GB to 6GB - any noticeable gains?

    Duel channel is better... I will suggest either keep the 4GB of ram, or upgrade to 8GB of 2x Dual channel... you will lose performance when you going from 4G dual channel to 6G single channel...

    Is it safe to OC ram?

    Yes, it is safe. As long as you keep the ram cool and don't exceed the spec voltage. I have my ram overclock from 1600Mhz to 2133Mhz with 1.65v and 9-11-9-27 2T timing (the 2T timing for stability)...

    ddr3-1333 (10666) gskill

    tRAS should be >="CAS" + "RAS to CAS Delay" + "RAS Precharge" In your case your CAS = 8, RAS to CAS Delay = 8, RAS Precharge = 8 as well....the sum of all three = 24 which is your tRAS... the tRAS should never be less than the sum of the other three timing....

    ddr3-1333 (10666) gskill

    Well, as rule of thumb - "DONT MIX MEMORY, UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO". Mix memory may give you headache.... The new memory may not run at the lower will match the slower latency... You be better to get the same one as you have right now.

    Corsair Vengeance 1866

    how about relaxing the ram timing and run it at 1.55v... that should do the job... and that is how I found my max ram speed with the relaxing timing... XMS3 DDR3-1600 7-8-7-20 2T 1.65 manufacture spec... I am running it at DDR3-2133 9-11-9-28 1T with 1.65v My ram also works in DDR3-1866...

    Mips RAM Liquid Block 6 - Corsair Edition vs. EK Corsair Dominator liquid cooling

    For me, I will just use the VGA RAM heatsink to cool the memory, that I ordered through ebay... it should do the job... so far I ran my Overclock RAM at 2133Mhz (from 1600Mhz) with 1.65v for a days at 2d mode without stressing it... I ran memtest86+ 4.2 for about 2 hours without any error...

    Can you manually set the RAM to operate with 1.5v in BIOS? I thought you can adjust your RAM voltage for all of the motherboards nowadays...

    Which DDR3-1600 is superior? G.SKILL PI 6GB CAS7 or Corsair Dominator 6GB?

    I have the Corsair XMS3 4G DDR3-1600 7-8-7-20 2T 1.65v. Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL7 DIMM I put 2 of them in Dual Channel mode... Right now I am running them at DDR3-2133 speed with 9-11-9-28 1T timing with 1.65v

    which RAM timing is better?

    This one? CMX4GX3M1A1600C7 I found it works really good on my P8P67 pro board with 2600K @ 4.7Ghz

    Again. 6GB vs 12GB

    You won't see a difference with more ram in games... However, if you are doing some video editing or photoshoping...then more ram is better.... for me 8G is good enough for me to do little video and photoshop.

    Windows 7 and Intel SSD settings?

    Like all SSD you should disable the drive indexing option... Right click on the drive and select properties. uncheck the second option "allow the file one this drive...." also move the page file to another drive....if you have more than 6G of RAM you can set the page file to like 2G...
