    I see completely erroneous information in the listing details, and further (especially from what you are stating) bad information edited into the description; not sure that the board is whack, but the seller appears likely (pics of runnin' screen shots and error messages that do not certainly mean bad MB - you see that screen attempting to boot from a drive that has no OS installed). No 9K came from the factory with a 2.5GHz (they only came with Meroms and that's a Penryn speed, T9300 to be exact)

    Before you order it have everyone you know cross their digits on both hands and feet, memorize and repeat aloud each day the entirety of Budha's teachings, insist that Gregorian music be played in the background and flog yourself everywhere you go from now on - consider your soul gone, sacrifice a goat daily and give it to some poor Hindus (or you can become Hare Krishna), gather your minion to cabal, get on your knees with face down head toward Mecca all day - don't get up (you should probably throw in all night too just to be safe), all these simultaneously and keep it so in perpetuity ... as bad as RTM is (and then someone attempted to fix it once the first two waves of returns occurred), guess what happened prior ... pre-release and\or experimental.

    I was thinking more along the line of Animaniacs. :D

    Hindus, who are vegetarian, would not want a goat sacrificed, but they would probably be sceptical of this purchase.

    Yes sir indeed an excellent observation and a well made point on the most devout of it's practitioners - I was thinking of the practice of only partaking of sustenance after it's presentation to their god and that meat's an expensive commodity and so providing such a gift garners good karma.

    Let us thank Saraswati for providing this to us and ask for these blessings in the future (which in this case I believe means know when not to do something).

    My OCZ is firmware 1.05 while 1.29 is current!! :eek:

    After update, my R/W speeds should climax yours. :D

    MaximumPC Best of the Best - Maximum PC-approved hardware and components for your rig building needs | Maximum PC

    But of course, ramdisk would be a much better option if the Dragon could handle all 192 GB RAM!!!! :cool: (@ Win7 64bit Pro or above)

    Then do an update.
    But I think the firmware has no big influence on the speed.
    The decisive factor was more dualIDA, "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" and keep clean the SSD.
    Please do before and after firmware update, a Bench!

    Unfortunately RamDisk is not directly comparable with storage.
    1. It is volatile.
    2. Everything must first be copied from storage. (depending on HDD read speed)
    3. The RAM HDX unfortunately limited to 8GB. (Max 6GB ramdisk at 32 bit)

    RamDisk in certain situations, however, very beneficial.
    For example:
    1. Temporary backup large files to be processed. (image processing)
    2. Multimedia

    Advantage: No HDD noise, lower power consumption in battery operated and extremely fast.
