OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Ultra fast, power efficient, only consumes about 4.5W during heavy read/writes operation, very consistent performance across all scenarios and makes my computer boot around 5 seconds and that is without the Fast Startup feature of Windows 8.

Cons: TRIM commands are a bit conservative and after several delete files, the performance may dip from the typical 480MB/s to low 300MB/s which isn't bad considering that it is far from being slow, plus OCZ Toolbox doesn't work to trigger manual TRIM.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a nice SSD which scored 7.9 on the Windows 8 rating, snappy performance and more consistent than my 840 that I installed on my Asus G74. Overall a happy camper here.

XFX P1-750B-BEFX 750W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It is very neat, great cable management, ultra stable voltage readings and has a special switch that allows you to turn off the fan when the PSU is idle and will turn on itself when required. It is a rebranded Seasonic X series MK3 also used on the Corsair AX series, which means that going either 3 won't disappoint you.

Cons: The cables are flat and hard to manage and hide as they don't bend that well, poor documentation (At least it is intuitive to assemble and connect the proper cables).

Other Thoughts: Overall, is a well round product that won't disappoint you. It is able to powerup my i7 2600K @ 4.40GHz watercooled with a modest Antec Khuler 620, 8GB G.Skill 2,133MHz, Sapphire HD 7970GHz oced to 1,125 with a Asus GTX 650 DirectCu for PhysX processing, OCZ Vertex 4 128GB, all stuffed into the NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT.

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It significantly reduced boost and shutdown times, everything feels so snappy, it has been the biggest performance increase since I upgraded from a Q9650 to a i7 2600K.

Cons: If you use Intel sure you connect the SSD drive into a native SATA III connection using the Intel chipset. I wrongly connected to the Marvell SATA III port and the performance was erratic and never broke the 290MB/s threshold. When I switched to the Intel SATA III port, it easily broke the 500MB/s read performance and the Acronis CloneDisk worked fine without no more issues. Don't use third party SATA ports regardless if its AMD or Intel just for the sake of reliability and performance.

Other Thoughts: i7 2600K 4.20GHz, Sapphire HD 7970 GHz, Gigabyte Z68-UD4-B3, 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws PC17000, awesome OCZ Vertex 4 128GB, all tightly fit in an Antec 900 case, all bought here!
