I am currently running the build in my signature however I have been having some issues with the Mobo. Occasionally one of my drives disconnects and is not recognised by the mobo. This has happened mid usage and has so far not caused any corruption. Now this is a very rare occurrence and I tried to diagnose it by switching drives around and also buying new SATA cables. Following this I am pretty sure that some of the SATA ports on the mobo are occasionally failing. To add to this the rubber grips on my Be Quiet! cooler have also broken leading me to purchase the H100i GT recently when it was on offer as well as a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB for a price I could not say no too. so I have a bit of an upgrade bug now.... My dilemma is this. I do not see a real need to upgrade my cpu at the moment however with the sata ports failing I would need to upgrade the mobo. I also don't want to spend money on an 1155 mobo that is outdated which means I would need to upgrade the whole system to skylake (that's what I would do if I upgrade). This would also give me access to more sata 3 ports (GD53 only has 2) allowing me to raid 0 my two 128GB SSD for OS. So do I take the plunge and do a full skylake upgrade for a 15-20% performance increase or do I wait for the next iteration of CPUs and hope this rare occurrence remains rare? Money is not really an issue but I just don't want to throw it away!!
