    this drive... It is your boy

    It is very fast

    do want :D

    the drive comes with a load of sweet packaging.
    nicely braided cable, little pcie card and the drive in a nice aluminium case

    the drive has a load of QC stickers all over it.
    exactly what you expect to see from such a high end part.

    photos of the packaging and contents:

    in fairness - OCZ should do a new sticker that ships specifically with this drive that says:
    "My SSD is Faster than YOUR SSD" :D

    Lovely piece of kit, will be saving up 4 this at @Xmas.

    Question: I presume one would need the minimum of 1 free PCIe x16, x8 or x4 slot (I presume PCIe x1 is out of the question?)? If so, would the speeds be identical to the above (which is I presume in a PCIe x16 slot) results?

    This is the adapter

    i think its a X4 slot, but in fairness i just went ahead and slammed that bad boy in the X16 slot :D

    the speeds would be identical as it isnt maxing out the slot anyway.

    Is the technology called HDSL or HSDL?

    The description says HSDL but the titles on the forums and shop page show HDSL... :confused:

    Can you boot from these? How do they appear in the BIOS as a boot device?

    they are bootable yes.

    they show up as a raid device much like a revo drive/raid array

    then you have to install the drivers during windows install to initialise the array :)
