Closed Home built system a year in review... Tags: Homebuilt Western Digital Systems Last response: January 30, 2012 3:40 PM in Systems Share JD13 September 29, 2011 10:21:26 PM Last year I built a new computer, now it's 1 year old. I just thought I'd share my experiences with my rig. System specs: Intel i7 980X Asus P6X58D-E 6GB of 1600 Corsair RAM 120 GB SSD OS drive 2 WD 1GB data drives in RAID 1x 2GB WD backup[ drive. EVGA 480X VC CoolerMaster 942 HAF-X My only real complaint is: I wish that the SSD's would be about $150.00 cheaper across the board. I would have liked to get at least a 256 GB drive. just too expensive. The rig is running nicely, no big issues I did have to under clock the RAM as the "overclock" failed. Have to run it at 1333 instead of 1600. I need to clear out some space on the SSD as it drags the WE way down. I took the side panel (with the fan) off for lower temps and better circulation.

"120 GB SSD OS drive 2 WD 1GB data drives in RAID 1x 2GB WD backup[ drive. " We all wish for the prices of SSD's to come down, but they have from that time to now..... What is "WE" that is dragged down due to a full SSD? Have you shifted the Pagefile from the SSD to your WD HDDs? if not do it, it'll free up quite a few crucial GBs from the SSD.
