Britton, I went back thru this thread to find some info I couldn’t remember, and found that I mis-interpreted one of your posts. Sorry. I thought your use of “posting” meant: POSTing (as in PowerOnSelfTest). I failed to put the dark screen and your question, together. The brain gets soft after years of multi-tasking in this chaotic world. Now I see what you mean! Dah……

I’m not sure what I’m doing that causes the lighter resolution. Let’s try this.

BRITTON, PLEASE “QUOTE” COPY THIS ENTIRE POST SO I CAN SEE IT FOR MYSELF. THEN I CAN FIGURE OUT WHICH IS THE BEST FONT/SIZE/RES TO BE DISPLAYED FOR YOUR CUSTOMARY “DARK FORUM THEME.”

I WISH YOU WOULD HAVE CALLED ME OUT ON THIS OVERSIGHT OF MINE. I DON’T GET UPSET WHENEVER SOMEONE FLAGS MY BOO-BOOs. I KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT CAN BE WHEN WE CAN’T READ SOMETHING.

Try switching to a dark theme from the drop down list at the bottom of the page and you can see what it looks like.

Unfortunately, quoting the post is not showing how it looks on a dark theme.

Thanks derekimo.
Britton, I mis-worded that. I meant was capture a screenshot copy as you see it from your side -- with both text & quotes – and attach an image, just as you did last time. So I can see the font size & lighting from your view.

Reason being: when I view my post to you, while in “SF DARK” or “SF Dark Wide” ( as derekimo suggested), I see black text against a dark gray background. It’s appear to me harder to distinguish the text than when it’s black against white back. This is why I suggested you screen-shoot my post after there are “Quote” boxes in it.

For example, in the original one you sent me (thread page 3), the attached image contained both “quotes” and “text” in which both texts were white font against dk gray back. Only diff was the thickness and whiteness of the text fonts.
This is my view in SF DARK mode:
It seems black on gray is harder to read; is it better for you?


/////// TEXT IN WHITE AGAINST WHITE:

Britton, Derek must have been posting at the same time as me. His screenshot also shows the same as mine. The "Quote" box text seems a brighter White than the text portion. While in "Dark Theme" mode, which text sample sent you is best for you?

Oh yeah, back on topic; My reader has had the drives assigned since day 1.
Thanks for heads up on drive assignments; hopefully we've got that one figured out.

I was surprised with the 8-channel RAM at 800GB/s you mentioned. Last I checked, Intel reported E-5 family 4-channel bandwidth board/processors were peaking at 52G. 800 is a pretty big jump, even at 8-chan I would think. Possible I guess, but pretty steep. But sometimes, reviews or ads are mis-worded and can mislead us. Sometimes my 4-channel config is called an 8-channel setup because 4-chan per CPU together might be construed as eight total. on an E5 dual processor config -- there are 8 channels - 4 on one frontside, and 4 on the other. Collectively you might say that 8 channels are feeding, but technically not true.

Do you remember the board model# or processor family of the board you saw?

Hog-tie should evaporate hopefully around mid-year when NVMe is adopted by SSD mfrs. Samsung already has one about ready for release to Enterprise, maybe client. Intel isn't telling, but I suspect their Q2 2014 PCIe SSD P3700 for Data Centers will likely have NVMe judging by their xfer speed claims. Anything near 16G should saturate the SATA-3 bus. Then a new hog-tie may emerge unless they're already working on a new interface spec for non-PCIe drives. They'll probably have to resort to fire hoses until the new interface specs are released.
