Wait and see with Coffee Lake, It supposedly has better single core speeds, which means better game performance in a lot of games.

I fixed the HDD problem you had, 5900RPM is horrible for load times. Go with 2 7200RPM drives for 4TB if you have to.

Hmm interesting your the first person to point out the HDD do you think the difference that noticeable?

LucasderpYT 1 point 19 months ago

Yea for me it is, boot times on my 5400RPM drive is about 2 minutes, on 7200RPM about 45 seconds
