    is it safe to run a SSD 24/7 for the OS? or will this wear out the SSD to fast? then I plan on WD RED as my data pool drives

    THanks Christopher my black drive is about 5 years old and I was debating a 2.5 inch 1TB red or a ssd. im liking the crucial M500 series for ssd but was afraid of all I read about the issues with writes and deletes. ive heard how this wears the drive down fast. Also the machine is going to basically sit and serve my drive pool which I'm planning on getting 3+TB red drives. so im not sure the performance boost is worth it for the os drive. im looking to also use windows 10 as my server os once It launches. also is 16gb ram enough or should I max the board out to 32gb? I will be using up to 512mb for the onboard video card.
