Post Fall Refresh
Since the refresh this past spring, I been running the 270x, a couple HDDs and the rest of the system on a cx430.A psu calculator said my system needed 403w to work. Surprisingly it was stable even during load. Being that I wanted to start overclocking the system, I started searching for a better psu. Found a good deal on used hx650. I wanted something modular and better than 80+ bronze.



During cyber Monday, I found a sick deal on a m500 for 90 bucks from tigerdirect. I thought it was time to retire the Intel x25-m and upgrade the capacity as well. Check out the benchmarks.

Why was your Intel SSD so slow? It was basically running at HDD speeds...

nice!... particularly jealous of the M500 and good choice on the HD598, it'll last you for decades to come. and once it's discontinued, you can sell it for twice the price you got it for. :) gotta love audio gear.
