    Returned the HDD and paid the extra $15 for a 2TB....yeah. Kind of got a very similar problem, though at least it's warning me upfront. Going to do the scan, erase it fully, and see what happens. Because if it survives that without its current pending sector count increasing, then it should actually be OK. BTW ignore the "uncorrectable sector count" warning, those are the default values.

    RIP 1TB HDD. I forced it to fail completely last night by doing a simply complete erase. And it had less than 12,000 hours use....with a rated MTBF of 1.2 million hours and ancient HDD with over 50K hours still working after 20 years.

    Even more glad that I bought my 4790K. Because without and my 2x2TB RAID 0 array (those 300MB/sec+ reads&writes), it'd take forever to run a complete malware scan on my computer, since there is over 3TB of data to go through (downloading my Steam+free Uplay games took a really long time to say the least).

    RAID 0 really comes into its own when your array is nearly filled...a single 4TB or 2TB drive slows down significantly when nearly filled, unlike the array which sees speeds that are still higher than the single drive when empty.

    I'm going to take the unpopular opinion that society has a culture of over-punishing rapists and that society is so against rape that it's treated worse than murder.
     
    Honestly, murder is worse than rape and this is just ridiculous that rape is so over-punished.
     
    Also, I love how technically according to the law a woman can't be punished if they rape a man.

    I just found an LGA775 motherboard with a quadrupled triple phase VRM. And counting them, it does appear to have 4x3 phases. Not even that, its marketed as actually having that, instead of just them saying "12 phase VRM" or in the case of Asus "true 16 phase VRM". Some mobo manufacturers used to be far more honest 10-11 years ago.

    The way Windows handles files on a software RAID 0 array is weird. I'm finding that files are far less fragmented and not scattered all over the array the way they would be if the drives were used normally. I might stick with a combination of a RAID 0 array and ample backups for a long time if neither of the drives fail.

    Ok. Odd development after overclocking+stress testing (yes downloading kindle books is stress testing for the Tegra 3) with my old tablet, the aluminium back for the first time ever is doing what it was supposed to do originally-acting like a giant heat spreader. Not only that, the Tegra 3 wasn't thermal throttling either
