    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

    Re-downloading my Kindle library, with my tablets Tegra 3 overclocked to 1.8GHz all cores. Even plugged in it was still draining both its battery and the battery in its dock.

    Can't find anything of interest on YT. TV still has only inane shit on it. Time to hit up some documentaries on YT. At least its soothing BG noise for playing my favourite space game.

    Note to anyone getting maglev bearing case fans: They are whiny AF when mounted horizontally-though the lifespan shouldn't be reduced.
    Stick with hydrodynamic/fluid dynamic/rifle/ball bearing fans for you're cases horizontal mounts.

    Well, my PCI TV tuner+PCIe SATA/IDE RAID cards also no longer cause micro freezes or BSOD after the PSU replacement. I now have a fully fledged entertainment/gaming system (though only with my computer screen-my TV's picture quality blows) system. Though I don't think the TV card handles DVBT-2 HW decoding due to its age. But since I've got a 4790K instead of the P4 3.2GHz that was recommended that's not a big deal-it idles while recording.

    So after installing the EAG650Pro:
    The HDD no longer randomly parks when the graphics cards are under load I can run both of my graphics cards (GTX 970+GTX 650ti) without any random freezes (everything including the sound for less than a second randomly) I have my GTX 970 running at 1372MHz without any problems, previously it had issues with even a 20MHz OC The PSU no longer runs warm/hot There is far less interference with the front headphone+microphone jacks  
    So what I can gather is that the Corsair VS650 really has troubles functioning as a 650W PSU, and would probably struggle in a build as a replacement for a 450W PSU. Functional but well and truly deserving of being included in the tier 6 PSU bracket as it was causing havoc with my rig.

    I'm not sure how well it works, since I just found out about it. But the Logitech mouseware software for my old ball mouse has an option to disable mouse acceleration in games, in addition to the then standard option to increase the PS/2 report rate to 200 reports a second.
