Re: HDD Elastic Suspension... Show your pics!

I'm still using these cheap elastic bands. These are changed once every 9-12 month. I only use the 1st and 3rd slots. If the bands loosen due to heat, there's still the bands in the 2nd and 4th slots to prevent the drives from falling. BTW, I've a Barracuda IV 80 gb (remember those with the SeaShiel...

looks and feels like Vista x86. However it appears to take up more ram due to 64bit registers(??). I can run more VPC2007 virtual machines in Vista x86 than in x64 without slowdown. In x64, 2 VMs noticably lag the system.
