Does it require much extra work to set up a SSD as a primary drive? I'm going to be building a new system in a few months, I figured I could just plug it in and go at this point.

I have a (OCZ Agility 3) SSD drive w/ win7 x64 on it, tho not my main OS it does work quite well, I am amazed at how fast it shuts down.
All I needed to do for my SSD drive was install the firmware (from another OS) & do some SSD tweaks.

a few more Overclocking results. I keep trying to push 5Ghz QPI & clock speeds with no luck so far, close though.
