  1. If your looking for the best you should look on eBay for server/enterprise SAS SSDs. They are up to 4 TB and double the speed of SATA SSDs. However, they require a RAID controller.
  2. All motherboards will recognize external HDDs to nearly 16 EiB. Even if your motherboard doesn't have UEFI the drive will still be visible in Windows. In order to boot from a partition with more than 2 TB the motherboard requires UEFI.
  3. Don't use RAID functions built into the motherboard. Get a dedicated RAID card. SATA SSDs aren't designed to run in RAID.
  4. I'm not sure how to connect these to a standard desktop. I have the Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 drives which use a SAS connector. By any chance do these drives use the Ultra SCI 320 interface?
  5. I've noticed significant improvements in stability, speed, and reliability upgrading from a 5400 RPM HDD to a 7200 RPM HDD.
  6. It's okay to use the RAID that is included in the RAID controller BIOS(LSI MPT BIOS).
  7. I understand the function doesn't change but I am concerned if there is any damage to the PCIe slot.
  8. Is it safe to use the same PCIe slot that the USB header card was in?
  9. Cannonlake will be the first 10 nm. processors from Intel.
  10. Icelake is going to replace Cannonlake in 2018. Coffee Lake is actually going to be equivalent to Kaby Lake.
  11. Cannonlake is the next die shrink down to 10 nm. It got delayed many times and will be released around the same time as Coffee Lake.
  12. Cannonlake will be making its way into the desktop and server market.
  13. I had similar problems with the previous generation processor the Intel Core i7-3820. When it was overclocked it ran extremely hot. I just put it on default clockspeeds to solve the problem.
  14. Intel divides their mainstream and enthusiast processor lines. For example, the i7-6700K is a mainstream processor but the i7-6800K is an enthusiast -grade processor. The 6700K is Skylake and the 6800K is Broadwell-E.
  15. Do you want ECC Memory support and other Workstation features or do you want a standard consumer motherboard? Do you have two Xeon E5-2680-v4s or just one?
