Cool, im assuming you needed to hook the drives up right to do some kind of RIAD setup? I had 2 SSDs in RAID but it gave me a few problems so ive moved my OS to a single m.2 nvme drive which is actually much faster than the RAID array was.

Yeah, I have 2 raid setups, one for my linux install and one for my windows install. Don't know if I'd do it again though, but it works for now so I'm not changing it.

I had problems with the array not detecting one of the drives randomly, might have been a faulty sata cable, but i replaced it and it still had the problem. Would sometimes happen when the computer was running as well, causing windows to freeze then crash. Since I stopped using it for OS stuff it wokrs fine though, no idea why.

I have had the intel raid config not detect the windows raid setup, usually because I had a different external drive connected (which i guess messed with the drive names?). Luckily never had it happen with windows still running, but that failed raid setup can be scary. That being said it does not happen often.

Its still a little too dodgy for me to rely on for the moment. Im pretty happy using the two SSDs at the moment to store games, since if the raid array gets corrupted because of that crap, its just games that i can re-download that goes missing.

The nvme drive is amazing, since im not dual booting another OS (I have another machine running linux since i use it for server stuff) , I have the speed of a RAID array, but no RAID config screen on boot (since it doesnt need to check the RAID status at boot) and it just loads RAID using the Intel RST drivers on windows. Makes boot times quite a bit faster.

#117 - rainbowtacos (03/08/2016) [-]
I understand that. If I were using windows for anything other than games, I probably would have switched off of raid as well.

For linux I use a filesystem level raid (btrfs) which hasn't given me any problems so far (other than a bit of a headache installing it). I would definitely go for an nvme drive if I had the money to do it and wasn't dual booting.

That raid boot screen is pretty annoying though, I think if I reinstall windows it would be on a single drive, because I don't think it's really worth it for the games I play (GTA V and Skyrim are the only really intensive games I've played in any recent time, everything else if just light stuff like LoL).

#118 - Ripsometime (03/08/2016) [-]
yeah go for a single drive, GTA V doesn't even benefit form RAID, most of the loading is networking related. Doesn't even load faster off my RAID. Skyrim does improve, but a single ssd would allow for acceptable loading times.

Well, intelligent memory haven't released any 16GB DDR4 dimms, and the only ones i can find are ECC server dimms. So i guess not for now.

Pretty cool, we have the same motherboard, did you have any problems when you first put it together with boot loops constantly util you remove the CMOS battery for like 20mins? Freaked me the hell out. But got it working in the end.

G.Skill and Corsair both have 16GB DDR4 dimms, so it's totally possible.

I didn't have problems like that, thank god, it's my first computer and I would have definitely been freaking out. I just ran into problems of not hooking up my drives to the right sata ports, had to move them like 3 times. But that's cause I didn't read the manual.

Depending on your chipset you could probably order some 16GB dimms from intelligent memory and have 128GB.. but thats pretty overkill for personal use.

It's an Asus X99 Deluxe. It has the slots for it, but from what I've found it only supports up to 64GB, even though I'm pretty sure X99 can do 128. Not like it really matters to me, I can't ever think of a situation where I would need or could afford to do 128GB.

Some weapons are banned because they are potentially dangerous, others are banned just for being unsporting. Usually, robot fighting rings ban:

Radio jamming
High voltage electric discharge
Liquids
Open combustion
Un-tethered projectiles
Entanglement devices
Lasers above 1 milliwatt
Visual obstruction
Halon (least likely to be used since it's no longer available commercially)

"Un-tethered projectiles" so they could essentially have a fucking harpoon? impale the enemy, reel in and drop in a crusher or some shit like a double suicide?

But that is pretty much how it works with fat acceptance. Everyone cares about their body, everyone else but you care about their body, you are the only one who cares, or nobody cares. Right now, women care, but there is a massive movement for making the 4th scenario a reality. That's why overweight women care so much, because they're bad in comparison to the good ones.
