NVME Bargain

Post by ProvokedPrawn » Thu Nov 28, 2019 10:39 am

Bargain on the Sammy 970 EVO Plus on Amazon:

These are ridiculously easy to install if you have a reasonably modern PC



And give you stupidly fast boot and load times. Well worth getting.

If you don't know what this is, then there is 100% chance you need one, m2 ssd is a tremendous boost in user comfort.
Worth every penny. But performance of this is really crippled by heat, a good, very good passive radiator is needed, and some mainboard do not offer adequate radiators on M.2 slots.
One i use which works fine :

I have to push this online retailer, small shop, always the same human being i spoke too in 10 years, good man, honest advices...
I have no financial interest in doing so nor was i asked to do so, nothing to gain except put in light good experience.

May i suggest some more reading for whom interested in ssd offering today...

@Lafayette m.2 expansion slots are amazing! But many people don't have one, so it's worthwhile they check they can install it before they buy it!
Just another scrub tier PUBGer

@Hevlikn I have faith in people judgement, it is so much obvious it's sort of warning " be aware you cannot use SATA if you only have PATA ".
Plus two links posted right up there, where you can find extensive information and links on the subject...
