Benchmarks SSD HDD PEX40039

Here are the benchmarks I promised of the SSDs and PEX40039 PCIe Sata3 card.
I did not get the card to work correctly while my system was set to RAID on the X58 system.
Seems to be a BIOS conflict. So these were done with RAID OFF.



Current Project: SSD PCIe2.0 Card

Samsung 850 PRO 256GB SSD
PNY Optima 240GB SSD

I will be doing some benchmarks, and reviews in the days to come.

Windows 10 My Feedback

I have been submitting my feedback on Windows 10 Tech Preview Build: 9926.
The previous builds were heading in the right direction,
but the latest build 9926 has me a bit off.
I have decided to keep a log of all this sent feedback.
Hopefully Microsoft Build team will take it into consideration.

I will be documenting all my feedback I am sending to Microsoft
through the Windows Feedback app from within Windows 10 Tech Preview right here in this post.

Creative SB X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series Windows 10 9926 03/04/2015:
Driver: SBXF_PCDRV_L11_2_30_0004.
This card had no sound, Although it appeared to work fine in Windows 10 9926.
Device Manager reported the device working properly.
Properties sound meter showed working.
Just no sound coming through the headphones.
After an update yesterday 03/03/2015 the sound just started working.
However the Creative Audio Control Panel still does not.
I’m happy the card sounds great.

Windows Update Windows 10 build 9926 : 03/01/2015
Keeps automatically installing updates I do not want. Specifically Nvidia Geforce Drivers,
Which I would rather manually download & install this, there are features I want, and do not want.
Please give us more control with updates, specifiaclly 3rd party drivers, and software.
the old method in Windows 7 was much better. I could Hide the updates I do not want windows update to control.
Hide, Unhide, Choose, View, Manually install updates, turn off automatic updates,
Windows Updates is force updating my hardware, and software. need more windows update control.

Start Menu 9926 : 03/01/2015
I can no longer add programs to the context menu.
Previous version, I was able to add the Control Panel to the start menu,
A would make a context menu of the control panel items,
Now I cannot customize the menu.
I would like to see custom context menu on start.

RAID0 Benchmarks. Non-SSD

It’s been a while since my last blog post,
I’ve been busy with other things, However I do find time to play with computer hardware on occasion.
Here’s my updated benchmarks of my RAID0X4, i7-920 @ 3.35GHZ

I also did a comparison with the system Overclocked, and stock clocked.
This is with a stock 2.66GHZ Intel i7-920, ICH10R

And this a Ram Drive using ASUS ROG Ramdisk
Notice the size of the test.

Always fun to max hardware, and find the performance needed.
