G-Skill :/
Some people love them others not so much :)
Yeah, no tape seal...

This stuff I got is 5 Egger from nearly 600 reviews. Hey, I'm all ears... what's your preference?... this stuff matched up good with the Z97 Chipset and Haswell i7-4770...runnin' 2 kits...check it out!-

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM -

Thanks, TZ... Now, back to my query- how can I make a bootable and installable set of discs from this HDD
once It's all updated to install on an SSD?... I don't want to migrate, but would like to clone it accurately. I might have trashed this Samsung 850 PRO- I wiped it twice in Partition Wizard. This is my 1st experience with an SSD.

Thanks for all the input, fella's!

I don't know much about ram I have ddr4 corsair dominator which isn't going to do you any good on a z97

Other Acer board I have plane Jane 4x2gb Crucial 1600 that works I tried some G-Skill and it just didn't work after installing it just gave a constant tone so I removed it and got a refund on it.

That does look like the same ram I sent back I can't remember except it was 4x2gb ?

System Imaging well that is Macrium's main deal I started using it so far it's great
It does have a clone option I haven't used it though

So I have a harddrive with important files on it with possible bad sectors, and I'm wonder how I should back it up in case the drive entirely fails. I can access the files on the drive using Windows 7 on another harddrive right now, so it's not that bad, but I know the drive has problems. It...

To start with, assume the OS runs from a hybrid drive (SSD+HDD in one package). Everything I read about these hybrid drives indicates to me that they can be treated as a standard drive when cloning/imaging to/from any other drive, as long as the OS and the cloning/imaging program is booted from...

Cloning or Imaging?
When would one choose to clone a drive for backup, rather than an image? I have always done images which have always been perfect on restorations.
