Windows 10: Show off your PC!
I have Kingston V300, 120 GB, one of first series with ****505 firmware and Im not exactly ecstatic about performance at least on paper:
There was a series with ****506 FW and it's good to skip it. Soon after they came with ****507 FW and problems were solved. Problem is that FW can not be changed at home, has to be done in the factory. I have it for about year and half and has been reliable and no hint of a problem but for speed that is quite a bit lower than advertised. 240GB are a bit faster and all of them are marginally faster on Intel systems.
HyperX should be better but with higher price and longer warranty, thought to be more of "professional" drives. Because of lo price they are popular here and I haven't heard of too many complaints about durability.
Just to the left, a bit more....a bit more.... OK. plop it there.
Actually it's very nice and useful to have another monitor even if it's smaller and cheaper. I keep a lot of stuff on it, comm programs, Sticky notes, network speed and reports, system monitoring and helper programs like calculator when needed, music and video player even watch TV in a window. I keep that other (22") one to the right of main 24" one and also keep it on a step lower resolution so if I can't read someting on main monitor I drag it to the right one and get bigger letters. With Win 10 if that feature works good should be able to have whole separate virtual desktop just for second monitor.
Theoretically you can have another OS running in VM on second monitor too. All kids of uses for second or even third one. Unless you plan to play games on multiple monitors, those one or two extra ones do not have to be top notch models or even brand new.

No, if I put another monitor on this desk I would have no room for all the papers I have to manage!!
I could have Linux running on one and Windows 10 TP on the other!!
Actually I've been thinking about replacing my monitor. I kinda want one that can support 1920x1080. Mine starts shaking!! t least that's what it looks like.
I just want to show it off again with my new wallpaper..
Oh, look at you with your four monitors! Show off...
Got some more goodies coming soon that will hopefully make things look better.
Nice water cooling!
Thank you Chuck.
Water cooling is 2 radiators and 10 radiator fans and 2 pumps. (XSPC)
I am Beeman hear me Buzz!
Yep no need to fire up the furnace in the winter with that setup. LOL
I thought since a lot of us on this forum are general PC (Windows) enthusiasts, that it would be fun to compare temperatures.
The specific temperature I am interested in is the CPU temp.
Please provide a screenshot showing your temps.
Was reading some info on SSDs over on TechSpot, and thought I would shear. Hope you find this info hopeful when deciding on an SSD for the first time or even if just upgrading from an old one.
At the top of the food chain are Samsung's SM951 and...
