    oh good. I can probably unplug the floppy drive after copying stuff.

    and I do have 2 PATA ports on this mobo, so it'll still work :yey:

    Re: Win a Samsung 850 Evo SSD

    I'm using totally 11 SSDs, among which one 512GB Plextor PX-512M5P has its remaining life of only 31%, and another one has 81%, while my 256GB Samsung 830 SSD is still doing well. I'm seriously considering if I should get new SSDs or should I go back to HHDs. I'm sure the new Samsung 850 Evo SSD will help me make correct decision.
