Hey people,

I haven't been around much since discussing SSDs in the hard drive forums. But I build a beautiful rig, runs flawless. Nothing uber fancy, just solid hardware and it works good.

Corsar 800D case

EVGA P55 Classified 200 MB

Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler

PNY VCQFX1800-ELEM-PB Quadro FX 1800 768MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Card

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" 2 each in RAID 0

I got this system for a budget workstation. Bought Intuos 4 for it as well. Running Win 7, its running very smooth thus far - stock. Room is 80f and the idle temp on this rig is 30c. It's blowing me away how much I could push this system without even cause for alarm.

Also built an air stop for the case's top hole meant radiator water cooler. Now the case has a solid positive air flow with a dust filter to boot. As a whole, this unit is solid and very quiet. Runs exceptionally cool as well.

I'll wait another few years before I go SSD. There are just too many failure stories out there right now. Granted there are the success stories, but they aren't as common as the failure rates.

I wanted to add that I updated the bios for the MB and am running win 7 - 64 bit. I'm also running a corsair 1000 watt PS so it [the PS] basically idles when under load with this setup. So far, I've maxed it out at about 150 watts under load with all cores working. Idle is running at about 90 watts for the entire system.

With the speed turbo mode, there is no need to over clock. When pushed, the i5 750 jumps up to 3.2ghzs stock! Its a really cool thing when you plan out a rig that ends up running so smooth and nice.
