After reading a bit about temps and overclocking etc i ran Prime95 just to check how hot my system gets at 100% CPU usage. Should i be worried by 63C?

No, that is a good temp reading, you would normally not thrash you CPU to that extent. Your real world usage temps are excellent.
Should you get close to 85C when overclocking, I would back off as seems to be getting too the danger zone.

Is your OS drive the SSD and the only drive you have installed in the case?

Thanks man, really reassuring :) I won't be pushing it that hard with the cooling system i have now. I spend an absurd amount of time watching the temps inside my case :happy:

Yep, only one so far.


hey jakob. As far as I know you can do caching with any ssd but it's only worthwhile if your ssd is small. I think the technology is called Intel Rapid Storage Technology.


I was expecting as much, but that would lower the performance of my ssd :(

Thanks, i'll try to squeeze in the time to read it thoroughly before I go on vacation.

If i don't reply by Monday there's no point checking for updates for about 3 weeks :)

...And i'm back

I bought a 1tb hdd in the states, which is running smoothly in my PC :) It's currently being used to store movies etc, so speeds don't need to be all SSD. I think i'll just leave it as is for now.

That being said, it was a great guide you sent me

Well I guess I should say no further assistance required (for now) :) Unless someone wants to hook me up with a good 3d video player for Nvidia 3d vision 2. The only one I've found that actually supports more than one codec is this one, and i'm not prepared to spend 40£ on the worst video player I've ever used.

Thanks for all the help guys! You're the best :)
