Patriot Pyro 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP60GS25SSDR

Pros: Great addition to my system as a cacheable drive. It really boosts the system performance. Resasonable price.

Cons: No issuues so far

Overall Review: My system: Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Gene-z Z68 CPU: Intel Core 7 2600K 16 GB (1600) RAM 2 TB SATA III HDD. I installed Windows 7 (64 bit) on HDD, then I ran Intel RST software to configure the SSD as cacheable drive. Works great.

Just works great

Pros: Just works great with my Windows 7 (64bit) system.

Cons: Internal port is 6-pin 1394 female (same as external). I'd wish it was 6Pin IDC female. You might need adaptor from to resolve it. One of the external ports is shared with internal one. If you're connected to the internal port, the shared external one becomes unavailable. It's, actually, mentioned in the item description.

Pros: It is really great motherboard. Extremely easy to install. I was able to overclock my system in lust a few minues to 33% (4550 Mhz) CPU and 50% GPU. Very stable. Great BIOS software. Great documentation.

Cons: Entry level Tech support is not very helpful. Lack of DVI output Lack of Firewire output Realtek audio driver has issues, which ASUS tech support can not address.

Overall Review: My system: Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Gene-z Z68 CPU: Intel Core 7 2600K 16 GB (1600) RAM 2 TB SATA III HDD. 60 GB SATA III SSD (cacheable drive)
