My DVD drive is currently flashed with iXtreme 1.3 12x speed since that is the stock speed of the drive right? Should I leave it 12x? or should I downgrade it to 8x so the drive isn't all stressed out?


p.s. I don't care about noise... my 2 fans already make jet noise lol (12v mod)

Well I think its worthless, since the noise difference isnt to much.

As long as you burn your media slow at 2.4x and use quality media(verbatim) then you shouldnt stress out the drive. If you use shit cheap media and burn at 8x, then that might kill your drive, but most of the time, you just replace the laser and drive works like a charm.
