Ardent young professional, working hard to master all aspects of the beautiful aspects Object-Oriƫnted Programming has to offer.

Currently I'm working on several projects, including C#.NET standalone software, GWT applications involving a lot of grand interoperability services, and Alfresco implementations, most of which at a lovely young company that's decided to take me on board for mutual benefit.

I am also a regular WoW player and Roleplayer (limited to WoW). Next to that, for hobby, I am practicing with writing simple game algorithms using the Java Graphics api, and wrecking my brain trying to utilize the wonderful possibilities of the Arduino Uno. My human-cyborg relations droid is a matter of time!

comment PCIe SSD as main (boot) hard drive on AsRock X97 Extreme M4
Thanks for your advise, SATA and PCIe SSD's are the way to go for me! :)

comment PCIe SSD as main (boot) hard drive on AsRock X97 Extreme M4
I use my computer for a load of things, ranging from compiling software in both .NET and java (big software, compile times ranging from several minutes to half an hour). I also use it for heavy gaming, hence the HD 7990, and some minor video editing and photoshop. I don't suppose I could use a RAM disk for that, but I suppose that would limit me in size. Shouldn't I notice a considerable difference using a PCIe SSD as application wrapper?

comment PCIe SSD as main (boot) hard drive on AsRock X97 Extreme M4
With a 64GB SSD at 500MB/s rw speed not costing much these days, this seems a very attractive option. Does this mean, however, it is indeed not (realistically) possible to boot from a PCIe device?

Thanks for the cleanup, Journeyman Geek. What stressed the HDD is compiling of medium-sized applications, running several streaming downloaders at once, installers.. Combinations of heavy operations, my everyday multitasking, really. I ran procmon to see what stressed the drive, but nothing extraordinary showed. I assumed due to the other hardware being quick, the drive just falls behind.

The hard drive doesn't constantly do 100%, I should've nuanced that. It easily reaches 100% workload when I stress the system, while all other components easily manage. Furthermore, the question is how I should improve my hard drive bottleneck situation, as I lack expertise. Concretely, my questions are in the list. Lastly, stackexchange meta told me this was the place to ask this question.
