Wow. Thanks for that money! This is exactly what I was hoping to hear.
1. The question is will SSD work? I've read about controller compatibility issues in past but pretty clueless about the market today. Would this work? OCZ Solid 3 - 120GB
- 450-500MB/s read write it says..
2. I'm going to dig up the mobo reviews to see what this is about. I use the wake from sleep feature exclusively - and would hate for that to be the pitfall. Especially if pairing it with a solid state drive...
Has the wake from sleep issue affected you personally?
3. Not too concerned about the CMOS access upfront. I can put up with a full tear down if needed. I do want to give the "thermal-armor" a try because it covers up and protects a lot of motherboard components. And with a 50mm fan it has good cooling I've read. I see there is still access to the CMOS reset button at least - whew!
