  1. Yeah, at this point I think it all depends on the motherboard. Some have multiple M.2 ports (I'm looking at this: http://www.evga.com/products/Product.aspx?pn=142-SS-E178-KR) and some just cut the number of available channels of that PCI-e slot to 8 or 4 or whatever, but some use the SATA express buses like you mentioned. I think on that MOBO it just uses PCI-e channels, which is good, because I want all the SATA ports I can get. That's some crazy speed. I don't need that much, but I like to build big every few years, rather than upgrade a little every couple. My desktop right now is about 5-6 years old. Running a Q9550 yayyyyyyyyyy. Do you also have a 2.5" SSD or HDD? Yeah, I don't need that sort of speed or storage for what I'm doing. I mean I want it lol, but it's mostly the price tag I don't need. Dependability, however, is what I'm after. As is everyone I guess.
  2. Or PCI-e SSDs for that matter? Just wondering what kind of real-world performance you're getting versus the number of channels. Thinking about using M.2 for my OS drive for my next build. That or just a PCI-e card, whatever it works out to be, but M.2 sure is convenient and space-saving. I'll do my main OS on the PCI-e storage, working photos/games on an SSD or two (and possible a RAID 1 array), and probably RAID 5 with spinning drives for storage/backup. Plus an external for backup.

  4. Yes. In Wisconsin, the exhaust can not be louder than "96dba at 20" away from exhaust." Technically any exhaust modification is illegal, but not strictly enforced. And to be honest, not sure what dba means. I'm assuming that's just decibels, but could be wrong. Don't know what the a stands for. Here's the lol ok getting it from. http://americanmotorcyclist.com/Rights/State-Laws.aspx?stateid=49 dBA is generally A-weighted decibels, but some write it for "acoustic decibels." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/decibel-d_59.html
  5. You sure it's ready? Some of those F-150s I saw last year had a ton of work in them. it's nowhere near ready lol. it's cheaper for me to enter it on the showside and haul an ice chest in that to pay spectator fees and buy drinks from concession though lol dropped 4wd on DUB Directa 24's. I won't win a thing. Well, let me know what you do, I might have to throw some cash in for you to smuggle me in a six pack or two. you'll have to buy em first. I'll just be 20 here this month haha Dammit I forgot lol.

  8. Typically you're grandfathered in. What benefits specifically are you talking about?
  9. There are some nice benefits though, I will say that. 30 days paid vacation per year, can pretty much handle personal business without taking leave anytime, medical and dental (though it's questionable in some places), some career fields get awesome bonuses (mine's not one of them ). There are some good things, and the retirement is tough to beat. Base pay isn't good. Pay isn't good period. I work side-by-side with, and outperform, civilians and contractors making literally triple what I do. At the same time, a decent amount of people who get out say they wish they stayed in, and people that did retire are glad they did. Guess I didn't answer the topic lol. Yes, I'm 100% for tax-free anything.
  10. Nice. Entering in the show, or just going to Mexico in the evenings?
  11. Who's going? Looks like I'll be there with a media pass taking photos for the event. Let me know if you guys definitely want me to swing by and snap some of your car (not like I wouldn't anyway!). I'll give my car audio folks a deal on some.
  12. If you're analyzing a user review, you've got too much time on your hands.
