That's a good deal 500gb even sweeter :)

Thanks guys!

I would have loved to have gone for the 500 GB one, but the price was out of my budget. I'm only using just over 100 GB of space on my current computer, so I went for the 250 GB drive.

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

That's a nice size I have a 2 Crucial MX100 256gb I'm using for Linux 17.1 and the other for my second assembly Win-7 install they are pretty quick
Both my Samsung's are 500gb evo ssd's 1 unused waiting for 10 to mature for an outright buy so I've discounted any upgrading nonsense

Win7 Ultimate X64

Just a thought but are you sure the PSU label was upside down ? im wondering if you have installed the PSU upside down which would pull air through it the wrong way around and prob wont cool as well as it should
Worth double checking

ps I know its a bit late now but some optical drives come with two bezels dark and light to match your machine

The majority of oem psu's pull air from the inside and exhaust out the back so I doubt that's a big deal the old baby might need a little more cooling or air pull :)

That would freak some people out putting win-10 on it though

Sorry guys, I've been super lazy with this. Car issues, work issues, etc... anyway, I have been using the machine seamlessly for the past month or so, and am posting this right now with it! :) I'll get a more in-depth update and photos here eventually...

The 250 EVO is a great drive, I have one, but get this one next :)

SSD 850 PRO 2.5€ SATA III MZ-7KE256BW | Memory & Storage

And this would be the Ultimate, but still pricey yet.
