    2. Shocking-see at the end
    Chipset Power and Installing Windows 7
    ( What is XHCI environment ?) see below

    The power into the chipset is now provided by a single power rail, rather than separate core/suspend rails, which should simplify design. Some other restrictions are also placed on PCIe routing signals, bringing the maximum length down from 10-inches to 9-inches, and also M.2 routing in PCIe 3.0 mode is also reduced. We are also informed that PCIe flex cable/daughter card arrangements are limited to PCIe 2.0 mode.

    One big shock will be for Windows 7 users. By default, the Z170 chipset and BIOS will not support full USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller (EHCI) mode. This means that for a number of circumstances, USB devices will not work unless an XHCI environment in play.

    Yeah, what for? I guess it's for the challenge, because the current hardware is so strong that it's hardly worth the chance of crashing and corrupting the contents of your hard drive. After all, isn't 200 miles per hour enough? That extra 10mph may cost you dearly.

    If your game doesn't run as well as you like with your hardware, get better hardware

    The again, we are Sysopt! Crash and burn trying

    Back when we were able to get 25 to maybe 50% increase it was worth doing.
    1 to 3 % increase, not worth the hassel.

    Apparently, Skylake will allow over 20%. Not bad.

    I guess if you're running the latest Crysis version, it would help, but then your graphics adapter may become a bottleneck.

    I just got tired of BSODs and oddball issues. Recently, my WD10ezex drive seems to become unbootable on ANY sort of sudden crash. I think we have another Deathstar on our hands. So far, I've had 3 of 4 of them die on me. This one seems flaky too. They don't seem to last a week.

    Cant imagine you dont know all tricks, maybe i can help. had such bootproblems over and over again.
    cleaning contacts, replacing cable then repairing bootfiles. can only help with winxp.

    Had not problems with the blue, of coarse it is about 3 years old.

    But it is not the primary either.

    128gb ram 8x16-kits available

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/29388...-ddr4-ram.html
    see the ram-disk-performance towards the end: fabulous!
    As you can see, the performance puts any SSD to shame. The mighty Intel 750-series SSD, for example, has a sequential read speed of maybe 2.7GBps. The RAM disk was hitting 8.7GBps.
