    Best gaming harddrive Sugestion ???

    Seagate states on their 750gb,32mb cache harddrive that the best application is video surveillance.(liquor stores,how very sad and completly overpriced for the amount of problems they have).Yet Passmark lists this near the top of their harddrive page.Any one have a suggestion for something that will last.(maybe samsung???)
    Also I was considering a Raidmax hybrid 2 sli 630w powersupply.Any thoughts on Raidmax??

    Harddrive Failure or Hardware Failure?


    i feel like we are getting a tad off topic, but i am entreated by the suggestion of a NAS setup. i was just going to go for an INTERNAL Harddrive this time around because money is an issue and especially since it seems like i am going to have to pay for data recovery. It is something i will definitely consider down the road

    Unless you think a solution would be to get a NAS unit and crack open my external and put it in that?

  4. Harddrive failure

    Is my harddrive faulty?

    Please pull your CMOS battery, wait 20 seconds, install. Enter BIOS, set date and time, make sure SATA is set to AHCI

    Make sure your are booting UEFI

    Boot from media and redo the shift + F10 instructions above. Then install windows using custom. (Step 10 of this Tutorial)

    Clean Install Windows 10

    Then skip to Step 13. How big of a drive shows in the Window for step 13. Notice the note within step 13
