Re: How long does it take to format a hard disk drive?

Yeah it does but you are the one to specify if/when it does it (daily/weekly/monthly).

Re: Who uses a Optical Drive?

Recently burned some gospel music for a viewing. Doesn't hurt to keep it in the machine. I have lots of music CD's but I've moved them over to the PC lol.

There are a lot of cool replacements...

Re: How long does it take to format a hard disk drive?

I think the reason Windows does TRIM the way it does (not automatically) is because it wears down the cells and it wants the owner to be responsible.

Re: Samsung 960 EVO.

Is anyone using the Samsung NVMe driver or should I just let Windows take care of it? I use the Intel provided NVMe driver for my Optane because it is so new but wonder if I should install the...

Samsung 960 EVO.

Getting the 500GB version soon. The 960 EVO is really close to it's premium cousin this time. It uses the same Polaris controller as the 960 Pro and aside from getting 3200/1800MB/s R/W vs....

Re: How long does it take to format a hard disk drive?

Disk defragger was never timed AFAIK. It would make MS look bad lol. It depends on the speed of the disk and the disk size, and the amount of fragmented data. I remember if your disk was full of...

Re: *2X Intel Optane PCI 480gig VROC *

Yeah I might never use my key but I want to have it in case I do. I really do not think I need RAID anyway. Not putting it down at all, I like RAID but I already have the speed and all I need is...

Re: *2X Intel Optane PCI 480gig VROC *

RAID 5 is nice, never tried it. The standard key I bought will do RAID 10 which is to say 1+0 and not ten I think. But it won't do 5. 5 is really nice Skully if you ever swing for a 3rd Optanium....

Re: Far Cry 5 - System Specs

Re: *2X Intel Optane PCI 480gig VROC *

Well guys, I went ahead and bought a RAID key. I found a new genuine Intel VROCSTANMOD key at PC Nation for $84 delivered with 3-day shipping. I think it is worth it to have as it unlocks a...

I believe I read that with the Standard key or the Premium key that Skully bought, you can use non-Intel SSD's.

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Yeah the thing I find about ASUS controlled setting in BIOS is they don't seem to work quite like they should. For example when you set cores to certain speed like you did above they do not follow...

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Sounds like me, I have the Optane for Windows, the 500GB 960 EVO will be for games, and a 1TB for backup. I also have a 750GB WD Passport that is about 8yrs old that I keep in my safe. I use it...

Re: *2X Intel Optane PCI 480gig VROC *

You should have a good shot because your using Intel drives, you have the dongle, and you are using full 16X PCI slots. VROC is cool because it has less overhead and a goes straight to the CPU and...

Re: *2X Intel Optane PCI 480gig VROC *

Yeah Skully will have the sweetest drive available, 2 x 480GB in VROC. The 900P is the only drive worth doing it in because it is compatible (Intel drive). The other compatible Intel M.2 Optane...

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Yeah, you are right. Also, you can't beat the 960 EVO 500GB for $209. The speed of this drive is very fast, within 90% of the 960 Pro and has the same IOP's. It will make the perfect game storage...
