MAX Flexibility. Simple to integrate and operate, it supports hot-plugging, eliminating the need to restart the computer when connecting or disconnecting a SATA device. MAX Throughput. Sleep should be disabled when using devices with this card. The computer's screen will turn off, but the computer will not actually enter a sleep state with the card installed.

  8. Operating Temperature. Here's the only part I found that might relate to sleep as a factor. We believe this is due more to our population mix than to aging effects.

    Moreover, this correlation could be the effect not the cause of troubled machines that require many repair iterations and thus many power cycles to be fixed. Finally, I'd be more interested in figuring out how to make myself get more sleep, rather than my computers get less sleep, but I guess that's a little off-topic for this forum.

    Not entirely, however, since addiction to lit screens does seem correlated with human sleep problems! Thermal expansion, air flow, location And yes, vacuums do create static. I experienced this recently, where I have a HEPA shop vac Dustless tools and was removing blow-in mineral wool insulation. You could see some dust actually attracted to the outside of the hose, from the static. Heck, I've seen this with a regular rug vacuum and noted pet hairs gathering around the foot tool.

    Now with more and more ESD-sensitive electronics, you have to be careful I cringe when I see iFixit videos without ESD safety or YouTube vids of hacks working on their apartment wall-to-wall carpeting. So, mind that a simple cleaning without respect for ESD can result in electronics failure. The nice thing about using a card is you don't have to start the computer with the drive running, and you can eject cards, which you can't do with the optical drive thing.

    This provides much faster transfers for the SSD than my Mac Pro 5,1 could normally handle, allows for very fast backup to an external drive when needed, and is extremely convenient and reliable. Booting is fine internally and externally. This also reinforces my belief that expandability is good.

    Yes, Apple has Thunderbolt and it's probably going to be great and all we need. And really, you can never have too many USB ports.

    Apple has untold billions of dollars and can't make a desktop computer, but the guy down the street can? They are losing customers, and once you go to Windows or Linux, it's hard to come back. You may want to, but there's all those investments -- and here's Apple still not giving us what we want. Some people have had problems with this older card. I have had nothing but success.

    Only use a genuine static-free bag, some of which have a ziplock closure strip. These bags are either silvery or pink colored to set them apart from the grocery store variety.

    USB 3. It is backward compatible with USB 2.

    It also adds support for "super-speed" 5Gbps. But these are all theoretical maximum speeds for the bus. Faster than a MacPro 5,1's internal bays?

    I would not assume that USB3 will be just as fast. It may have a theoretical maximum data rate of 5Gbps, but there are so many other factors that affect USB speeds that it's impossible to say without additional information. I wouldn't use a ziplock bag. Use an anti-static bag or clamshell e. And throw a silica gel packet into the bag with it to absorb moisture. A normal plastic bag may have a static charge, which can damage electronics.

    And moisture in the air can similarly damage components if stored that way for an extended period of time. Just put 'em on a helper volume, point your bootloader there, and Bob's Ryan's your uncle. I've always wanted to dig into this but have lacked the time and programming chops. QuickTime was barely a year old , Woz talked about the importance of grounding yourself when working on electronics.

    He said something about if you can feel a static charge, it is at least 10, volts though obviously low amperage , and a charge of volts or less is enough to destroy an electronic circuit. I have also, on at least two occasions, damaged fans in computers by blowing them with compressed air. It's so tempting to do it, because it makes a fun noise and clears the dust out with a satisfying puff, but either because of the speed, or asymmetrical force applied from the air can, the fans became unbalanced and vibrated terribly, requiring replacement.

    So now I carefully hold the fan blades stationary and blow the air around them. All rights reserved. It has been stable under Yosemite since January, including waking from sleep. That means a single channel has more than enough power to drive a 4K display or high-speed storage device, but if you want to do both things at once you'll need to devote a channel to each one as daisy-chaining won't give you enough throughput.

    What's the best way to connect your kit?

    All three standards are much, much faster than USB 2. Thunderbolt can do 20Gbps. As we've already explained above Thunderbolt 2 isn't actually faster than the original 10Gbps Thunderbolt standard, but if you wanted to get 20Gbps out of that you needed to combine two 10Gbps channels. You don't need to do that with Thunderbolt 2.

    As with all maximum throughput figures, quoted speeds are theoretical maximums and don't take data overheads into account. The performance you actually get in the real world will also depend on your devices and their configurations. The DisplayPort element is backwards compatible, but you'll need a cable adaptor to connect an existing DisplayPort monitor.
