    Pics of the inside of that case would have been nice. What mother board are they using to get 5x PCI-e 4x slots (I presume those MegaRAID cards require 4x slots)?

    What are teh rest of the specs of this? Sorry if these questions have been answered in the video, I don't have sound here.

    They didn't say. Just 150k IOPs and 6GB/s transfer.

    They did say that it would take 0.9s to rip a BD-DVD. That's bull, because it takes longer than 0.9s to read a BD-DVD. If you had already read it into the buffer, then 0.9s maybe, but not altogether.

    PATRIOTS LIE!

    /pun intended. I mean who likes Tom Brady anyway?

    What I found really annoying is how he said "rip" a blu ray disk...ehem, excuse me? What Blu ray drive were you using to do that? EXACTLY!!! How about just saying a true great benefit of stuff loading faster...for example in video editing...where the files can be 1TB+ per clip (raw) ...for the typical consumer? 4 x SSDs MAX is what you need to get the most benefit....

    LOL why did the other posts not show up until I submitted mine?

    For overclocking world records, people use 5x iRams or 3x Acards, though iRams take a mobo slot each and Acards take 2 SATA connectors.

    Incidentally, the overclocking community specify Ramdiscs as disks run in RAM, rather than Acards, which are hard drives made of ram with semi-permanent storage.

    He just meant copying a file of the equivalent size of a Blu-ray would take 0.9 seconds. It's odd that he said it like that though.
