If it's normal, it's normal. Just making sure. Thanks!

Hi. We just got a Dell PowerEdge T330 with 4 x 120GB SSDs in a RAID10 config. Ran an ATTO Benchmark and am concerned about the write speeds shown in the image below. Any settings or tweaks to change this? FYI - the SSDs are Intel DC S3510 Series (6 Gbps)

Hi all.  I'm in the US and bought a laptop from an eBay store in Canada. The service tag doesn't allow me to get support through Dell but I can through the eBay seller for 1 year. The specs on the laptop are as follows: CPU - i7-4600U RAM - 8GB HDD - 256GB SSD ALL TEMPS BELOW IN CELSIUS  I'm running into issues with the CPU temperature.  Using software like Speccy I can see the motherboard temperature is staying cool (25 degrees) but the CPU has an idle temperature of about 56 degrees and gets up to 80+ degrees when doing nothing but basic office work. I've ran Prime95 to see if the laptop would crash when put under full CPU load and it doesn't which I suppose is a good thing.  The temp gets up to about 95 degrees and then the fans kick into high gear. This brings the temp down to about 83 or so. Again, idle the CPU has a temp of about 56 degrees. The eBay seller will take the laptop back to repair it but I'll be without a laptop for over a week.  I need to know if these temperatures are normal for this CPU/laptop. Any insight would be appreciated.

Hi all. This is my first post! I have a Dell XPS 435MT.  I am happy with it. I upgraded the video card and everything is working well. But... I need a PCI-Express 2.0 slot for a SATAIII RAID Controller I purchased. The 435MT only has PCI-Express 1.0 which is limiting my hard drive speed to 50% of what it should be. I was wondering if I could possible get a "newer" Dell motherboard that actually has a PCI-e 2.0 slot. I'd hate to have to buy a new computer. I'd also hate to lose 50% of my hard drive speed. Anyone have any suggestions?
