    Mushkin 480GB MKNSSDAT480GB

      I just wanted to post and say that I have installed Windows 7 on an DC3217IYE with a Mushkin MKNSSDAT480GB and it seems to work fine. With this kind of storage we have a viable lightweight developer workstation.

       

      I haven't done any real-word load testing yet so I can't say if there will be any thermal issues (the Mushkin is rated to draw up to 1.1 amps). I've included a screenshot of AS SSD results (the drive isn't encrypted yet).

          Thermal issues would be rare since the included processor is designed for low thermal dissipation and the SSDs usually require less power and produce less heat than a standard mechanical drive.

            Hi, yes - even though I'm not doing any formal benchmarking/thermal testing, I find that the system works with no problems even after sustained activity (scripted installs of development environment, many tools, high CPU and disk utilization for > 2 hours).

             

            I'm using it day to day now with dual 21" HDMI to DVI connections and it works quite well. If I have time I will try it with a pure HDMI connection to a 30 WQXGA (2560x1600) panel.
