Good parts, good build. There is a field for the 3dmark11 score when publishing a completed build.

I would have gone with a Samsung 840 pro because I heard the non pro versions weren't very good. Otherwise, very nice build.

It's not that they aren't good it's just comparative to the 840 pro they were lacking in the Write department :P still a better alternative to a HDD.

Oh so that's what the problem was.

And the fact they use 2 cells which be the cell will be used more and your SSD will die faster then most.

Thanks for the comments i went for the ssd just because of cost and will be upgrading to a larger one when money allows it.Im very pleased with the samsung performance compared to my old laptop. I partitioned my 2tb drive to mirror the ssd incase of a failure.

Just one more thing do my cpu temps look ok? they seem on the low side compared to other builds. So im wondering if there accurate! Im taking the readings from asus smart suite they do move up and down depending on what im doing. Any comments ?
