Very interesting indeed

Made me stop to think... Will this trigger another breed of defrag utilities specifically, SSD Defrag tools for desktop applications? I imagine the defragmentation would be many many times more efficient than of HDs even at almost full capacity.

Shipping out products that are not yet prepared to handle demanding desktop environments are not unheard of just to get an early market share

I'm sure many of us are just waiting for SSDs to be the common storage media so we could all go solid state without the heavy pricing.

Possible performance drop due to cleaning fan.
Hi guys, Past week I did a manual cleaning of my whole cabinet, and also the processor's stock fan that was making a constant sound that fans generally make. I pulled out the lever for detaching the fan, and did a thorough cleaning of the fan. After that I blew away the excess dust inside...
