Re: Mobo advice

My fault, that was the original build. The computer was rebuilt with wini7 in 64 bit. The reason for all the fans was mainly for looks. The rebuild is in an Antec DF-85 which keeps it plenty cool. The only thing I don't like about this case is that the plastic thingies in the front have to be opened...

Re: Mobo advice

Pics huh? I can do that I guess and here's something for you for now. This is the original configuration, it's changed a little since then but mobo, video card and the main stuff is still the same http://extuff.biz/forsale/Computer-Configuration-Screen-Capture-1.jpg Hmm, I see the video card is miss...

Re: Mobo advice

I'm not necessarily in a hurry. If I can sell my current computers to pay for the new one, cool, then I'll do it, if not, I can wait till I sell something. The question is really, will this solve my problem (see the explanation right above your post) As for there always being new stuff on the way......

Re: Mobo advice

Just FYI - copying a large amount of small files will be a lot slower than copying large files, no matter what drives you are using. I wouldnt go as crazy with the CPU like Vibronchef did either. I would snag a quad core i7 rather than going higher end. Also, the only thing you keep saying about is...

Re: Mobo advice

Well, I was gonna mention the stuff running in the background...I guess I should have. Ok, more cores, more speed and sure, I DO understand that it's good to have more cores, I just didn't know if I needed them or not and I was trying to keep cost down at least a little. I'd have to get rid of a bun...

Re: Mobo advice

So, why is quad core faster if I'm only doing one thing at a time?

Thanks

Re: Mobo advice

Yeah, the raid cards (or at least the good ones) ARE expensive :( The thumbnails are the whole purpose (at least when I'm in Windows explorer and ACDSee) because that's how I find the pics. I have 8 gigs of ram right now and a processor running at 4gHz so exactly how can I speed it up on THAT end? T...

Mobo advice

Guys, getting a new computer built and I want to have several SSD's in raid 0 for faster performance because I constantly access folders with many thousands of files and it takes forever to index them, make thumbnails of the folders, sort them by size, date, etc. So, I wanted to stripe a few SSD's b...

Re: Raid 0 vs Raid 0+1 Speed Difference, AND Acronis problems

Any idea how this is for quality? I chose it for the colors (yes, for ONCE in my life, I wanted some color in my computer) and because it was modular.

Ah, I learn something new every day. That's not something you can fix anyway, even if you buy a good one, right? I mean, no real guarantee right?

Re: Raid 0 vs Raid 0+1 Speed Difference, AND Acronis problems

I DID go to the thread you posted and man is there a lot of info. I don't understand all of it but I will probably ask a few questions there too. As for the PSU going bad, it's only a matter of replacing it. My stuff is NOT really time critical. I can be a day or two without the puter without going ...

Re: Raid 0 vs Raid 0+1 Speed Difference, AND Acronis problems

Yeah, I know I can have that many drives on one card but I don't know if you can have TWO different RAID arrays on the same card. Ie, a Raid 6 and say, Raid 0 on the same card..? As for having it all in one location, what I would worry about is fire and that's about it and if that happens, I have bi...

Re: Raid 0 vs Raid 0+1 Speed Difference, AND Acronis problems

I initially got this case but it's a piece of shi* Also, their way of doing business sucks. They wanted something like $40 just to drill holes for TWO handles. NOT EVEN the handles... It was cheaper to get their handles and just take them out and throw them out which I think is extremely stupid :( h...

Re: Raid 0 vs Raid 0+1 Speed Difference, AND Acronis problems

Second question. I had the case set up with three Raptors in Raid 0 for boot drives as you already know and two 1TB drives in JBOD for primary storage. I WAS going to use my NAS for external storage but I am considering putting a Raid 6 array inside the case for backup storage and even higher redund...
