Anyone who has an issue installing Windows or whatever on one of these is incompetent at best.
Seems to be some mixed reviews, mostly about quite a difficult time installing to it and making the drive work. Any input to this BP, or anyone else?
Even my install with two of them, as a RAID 0 set, went entirely without issues...and my install was rather extravagant since I was coming from a completely different RAID setup, to a HDD (when one of my older SSDs had a firmware bug), back to the Vertex 3s in RAID 0.
So yeah - anyone having issues is just clueless or has extremely odd hardware. These plug in just like any other drive, show up just like any other drive, and are amazingly fast without any crazy tweaks or whatnot.
GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.
