In an unexpected turn of events I was fortunate to receive a contract to upgrade 40+ laptops and desktops. All received minor hardware upgrades, mostly memory and laptop hard drives to 7200 rpm models, and clean software installs based on Windows 7 OS. Needless to say that has kept me busy for the last couple of months. I have been planning a new PC of my own and have been acquiring parts for it, but was not making much progress with everything else going on. Yesterday I realized that I had all of the parts and had free time on my hands. The parts: Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D Pro CPU: Intel i7 860 2.8GHZ CPU Cooler: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler Memory: Corsair Dominator-GT 8GB (4x2GB) 240 Pin DDR3 SDRAM Video: PNY Technologies GeForce GTS 250 1024MB DDR3 PCIe 2.0 Hard Drive 1: OCZ Vertex Series 2.5” 120GB SATA II Solid State Drive Hard Drive 2: Samsung 500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive 3: Seagate 1.5TB 7200RPM Hard Drive 4: Seagate 1.5TB 7200RPM DVD: PLEXTOR PX-B320SA LightScribe Blu-Ray/DVD Power Supply: CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W Power Supply Case: Thermaltake V9 Black Of course, the OS is Windows 7 Enterprise. I used the SSD Drive as the “C” Drive and Installed nothing but software on that drive. All user folders have been re-directed to the other hard drives. From password to usable desktop: 6 seconds! Using ANYDVD-HD I ripped the movie “Cloverfield” on Blu-Ray to the hard drive in 34 minutes. The movie was playable fromn the drive using Cyberlink and WMC. This is my first SSD Drive, I am quite pleased. I selected this particular ASUS motherboard because it has the auto overclocking feature.
