    single platter HDD recommendations?

    As of this post, it's 24oct2012, est. If I wanted only two single platter drives in raid0, what's the maximum platter density available? I once had hitachi 7k1000.c's, 500gb single platter drives that kicked ass. I know at the time, there were the samsung f3s, which i'd have gotten, but we're...

    High-end gaming with ivy bridge i3

    Having trouble finding benchmarks with people using an Ivybridge i3 (3220, for example) and a 660ti, 7950 or better at 1080p. Every time i do find something, they are using a much lower res which I understand to place more load on the cpu than the gpu. I have seen users on various forums using...

    Seeking build advice

    A few questions: I had to sell my sig desktop, but things are looking up in my life and I intend to build again soon. Have a mATX Lian Li pcv350 and an 800w corsair psu still. I also have the LG w2363d 120hz monitor. For this reason, I'll be gaming at 1920x1080. No desire for multimonitor...

    LLC/VDroop question

    After getting a new case, mobo (asus x58 sabertooth) and hsf, i've since achieved a better overclock. Right now, i'm at 4.2ghz using 1.39vc, 1.32qpi with htt off, LLC off/VDroop on. When i run small ffts in prime95, my voltage in cpuz/ohm drops to ~1.32. If i turn LLC on, would i lower my...

    benefit of more powerful cards for physx?

    is there a difference between running a 9800gt vs a gtx 275, for example, as dedicated physx? or perhaps the question to be asking is are there any games using enough physics to make such a difference noticeable? simply curious

    1.5v ddr3 vs 1.65v

    with the i7, doesn't it make more sense to go with 1.5v when possible? not like 1.5v is particularly hard to come by these days, i mean. is there a reason for 1.65v other than the particular stick of ram might have tighter timings, etc?

    jmicron jmb363 throughput?

    i'm having a hard time finding information about this controller. i have the msi x58m mobo, 6 sata ports on ich10r and a 7th on the jmb363 controller. i intend on getting a single fast ssd in the future, so i'm wondering if the jmicron port might be worthwhile in this case? i see bad reviews...

    16:9 vs 16:10

    More commonly considered the debate between 1920x1080 and 1920x1200. This actually comes from a discussion i had with a true pc gaming friend of mine. Personally, i prefer 1080p; a media standard, and i like knowing my movies are running at full native resolution, etc. the fact that 1080p...

    does this exist?

    i'm wondering if people know of any software that would a.) have the ability to create self expanding partitions in ram and b.) run from a context menu to create approximate storage space for a file on the hdd (in ram), and then move the file into ram. then a paste feature would dump it to the...

    aero desktop, locked at 30fps?

    hitachi 7k1000.c 4x500g raid 0 performance

    thought this might make a good reference. ICH10R chipset on the msi x58m mobo, i7 920@3.5ghz with 12gb of ddr3 1600 was hoping somebody with a similar setup using samsung f3's could post to compare? the raid volume is 200gb with 64kb stripe size. write cache enabled...
