A big thanks to Rondog for taking the time to share his thoughts on his new drive:

Yeah, things just went from bad to worse. The drive failed. Still works as a storage drive, but not a boot drive. It makes a weird clicking noise during Windows boot up, so now im using a my old 120gb IDE as a Windows drive while its being RAed. To add insult to injury, my 9800 Pro decided to die as well. Its away for repair.

But anyway, many thanks for saying it was a good review!

Onto TechPowerUp and TechReport, it exceeded my best hopes.
