    So I suddenly dropped off the radar because, well, my SSD died and I finally decided to partition one of the 1TB drives and use that until I replace it with an 840 from Sammy.

    PC's, man, they give you so much trouble at odd points in their lives.
    Bummer on the SSD.

    If you can raise the shekels, get an 840 PRO instead of an 840. It should be more reliable since the 840 Pro still uses MLC instead of the unproven TLC used in the 840s. The Pro has a five year warranty instead of on three years and has better specs.

    I just ordered a 128 GB a couple of days ago. If you are on NewEgg's mailing list, they have them on sale right now.
    Appreciate the advice!

    It sucks when your SSD ups and dies on you, doesn't it, Bungee?
    It really does! But it got me to optimize my spinners and I'm very pleased with the results.:)
    Hope you have better luck with the sammy. I've heard only good things about them.

    Michael I suspect it would be under warranty?

    It probably is but I don't even care to replace it, because while the speeds are great I continue to hear bad things about their drives.

    Of course the same could be said of any product (which is chiefly the reason I purchased it in the first place) but I'd rather not play Russian Roulette with my stored files again, and I'm aware I'm doing that anyway with flash memory but I've heard nothing but greatness about Crucial's and Sammy's SSD's.

    Michael, if it's under warranty, get it replaced and use it along with the Samsung. Do regular backups, they will save your bacon. They have mine, but I'm the backup king probably. I have everything backed up to at least 4 hard drives. Losing my data is not a concern to me. Using my SSDs is a concern. Speed kills.

    You have me beat; I use only three drives per HDD. One of each group of three is kept in a safe deposit box at my Credit Union and gets rotated out no less than once a month. I also use Carbonite.

    I do a full image once a week and a differential image between full images whenever I put something important on my computer.

    Lady Fitzgerald, I'm surprised to find someone as fanatic as me. But, forget images. I have 2 drives and use Paragon Migrate. It is made especially for SSDs, but will work on spinners just as well. I clone my OS to another drive at least once a week, alternating weeks between drives. So, I always have 2 copies of my OS. If my drive died tonight, I wouldn't even lose an email, and would be back up and running in less than 5 minutes. To me, that is well worth the $19.95 it costs. Yes, I have a lot of hard drives. I think I should get some more. I'm sure I would find a use for them. Actually, I have been waiting for them to drop in price, back to where they were.

    Just upgraded to an i5 3570k, Gigabyte Z77X UD3H and a Samsung 840Pro 128GB.
    Found a slim fan for the top case, the CPU cooler and both fans now fit inside the case.

    Nice job, Dave. Real clean and neat. No doubt you will love the rig and the Noctua fans are fantastic. The color kind of grows on you, but the performance is unquestioned and unheard. I've had to open the case to make sure they are still running. All around great job. I'm anxious to hear whether you think the Samsung 840 Pro is worth the extra money over the 830.
