Plextor is coming to the UK with its high-performance solid state drives, with the launch of its second generation M2S series SSDs next month. With this, Plextor is officially entering the SSD sector in the UK and Europe, where it hopes to become a pioneer in the coming future. According to Plextor, the new M2S drives will among the fastest available in the market once they are launched.

The manufacturer will be launched the 2.5” internal M2S Series SSDs in three capacities of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB respectively. The drives will be among the first to support the new SATA III 6Gbps interface. Additionally, Plextor has included exclusive technologies in the drives that boost their speed, stability, and lifespan. The manufacturer claims that the SSDs offer up to 10 years of undiminished performance.

The new SSDs boast of read and write speeds of up to 480MB/sec and 330MB/sec respectively, speeds that are significantly higher than other SSDs currently available and making these the fastest SSDs in the market. The reason behind such exceptional speeds is the new server-grade Marvell 88SS9174 control chip that Plextor has used in designing these drives. The chip not only adds to the read/write speeds of the M2S SSDs, but also provides them extended lifespan and higher stability.

To keep things moving smoothly, the M2S drives have also been equipped with 128MB of DDR3 cache, which further enhances their speed capabilities. Plextor has included its unique Instant Restore Technology in the drive design so that users have an intelligent solution that prevents performance loss and boosts longevity. There is also the latest Windows 7 TRIM command, which allows users to efficiently carry out data-wiping. Dynamic Wear Levelling technology on the other hand writes data into equal blocks so that the number of memory wipe-outs required is significantly reduced.

For the tech-savvy home and business users, Plextor has gone a step ahead to make migration from HDD to SSD easier by providing the Acronis True Image Software. With the software, users can quickly and easily clone their entire partition or drive and transfer the same to their new SSD without having to worry about data loss or OS re-install.

All M2S drives will carry a 3 year on-site warranty from Plextor, with after sales service provided directly by the manufacturer rather than third parties or retailers. All three drives are expected to launch in Europe and the UK in March 2011, with pricing details to be announced at the launch.

forget that 1010W psu, Get a 850W Corsair, 8GB is overkill, but leave that alone...might i recommend mushkin instead £80 from aria.uk.
Go with the Corsair H50 or H70 if you really want to watercool...if not then get a Titan Fenrir Evo, will be a good cooler for medium sized OC.
If your getting a SSD get a 64GB just in case.

thanks for the reply, it is real good info but i was talking to a man who overclock and he said that you can't overclock without cool water so that is why i want it, if you can overclock with air i would like it better. For the powersupply i am getting a second 6970 so i was told min of 1000 wats, and i have looking at a second ssd and was thinking of run them in raid 0.

You can overclock with air just get a noctua nh-d14 with some mushkin ram and your good to go. If you wanna go liquid cooled a 360 should be enough for your gpu and cpu. IMHO dont buy a h50 or a h70 its just POS for the price and by everyone (well mostly) opinion round here and i own a h50. Dont run ssd's in raid it will disable TRIM which will increase collection youll see performance decrease drastically in months and for the psu get the ax1200 or hx 1000 by corsair. Both solid psu's.

850W corsair will run two 6970, no problem for it. Are you going to cool your GPUs with water? If not a noctua NH D14 will do the job if you want a 360 rad that is something else but don’t buy premade kits they are horrible.

:rolleyes: In that case the guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Really annoys me when people like that give out 'advice' like that.
