Re: Netlist Announces mSATA Mini & Slim SSDs

And the cost is ?????? I'm guessing mega expensive as they're aimed at commercial use in servers and the like but two of those 128GB ones would fit just nicely in my RV02

Re: Legit Reviews and NZXT Sweepstakes!

Seems the consensus here is a dislike for Facebook (include me). Nate, if this contest doesn't get that many entries are you going to try and curb the Facebook/Twitter contests in the future?

Re: Thermaltake BlacX 5G Hard Drive Docking Station Review

I've got an Vantec one but what bothers me is the heat the HDD's produce whilst in use beats me why you'd want to stick an silicon blanket on it to hold in even more heat A HDD barely makes any heat. In the average room temp of a house (72*F) you're not going to have any huge heatups from the drive...

Re: 6.30 SMP2 or keep using bigadv on the i7-920
