  • Hi,

    Inquire ko lang if meron bang nabibili na rgb heatsink for gen 4 ssds na nabibili separately?
    Gusto ko sana heatsink ng Klevv Cras C700 rgb. :)

    Thanks!
  • For 3.5K:

    PNY XLR8 CS3030 500GB M.2 NVMe
    Samsung 860 EVO M.2 500GB
    Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 250GB

    Ano kaya dito ipalit ko sa old ssd(barracuda)?

  • Ang init pala ng 970 EVO Plus. 53C idle pa lang.

    Malayong mas malamig yung Intel 660p at ADATA XPG 8200SX Pro.
  • @catwar

    sa bigger capacity ako no doubt, mas sulit yun
  • @MrBungle

    Hindi naman laptop pa naka-install yung sa akin




    But I am using a heatsink on it


  • guys im planning to buy ssd sata 2.5 cruxial mx500 500gb. and nakita ko yung gigabyte which is cheaper. any thoughts?
  • @ccl2003

    I dunno man. Mainit talaga yung idle temps ng made in Thailand na Samsung 970 EVO 2TB ko. Something must have changed or dahil mas mainit talaga yung 2TB. Nasa low 50's ang idle at around 60's range pag may heavy load.

    Using the same m.2 slot and heatsink, yung ADATA at Intel NVMe drives, nasa low to mid 40's lang.

    Hindi naman big deal sa akin as long as it works as it should.
  • I'll be using a Samsung 980 pro (pcie 4.0) as my OS drive soon. Ok lang ba without active cooling and just with the mobo nvme heatsink? What temps should I be expecting?

  • If hindi gen4 ang Motherboard mo I think you will be fine.

    Ito temps ko with Gen4 before and after ko installan ng Cryorig Frostbit yung 980 Pro ko.

  • Gen4 yung mobo ko Odellot. Taas pala ng idle temps, mas mataas pa sa idle temp ng wd black hdd and gpu. Hoping na yung fans ng NH-D15 makatulong to lower the temps.

    Edit: Mataas pala fan nya, so baka sa 2nd nvme slot at the bottom ko na lang ilagay, and put a 140mm side fan blowing towards it. Kung mahanap ko yung old na Antec spot cool ko sa bodega yun na lang hehe

  • good day sirs.
    1st tine ko magSSD.
    walang m.2 slot so ssd muna.

    okay ba si WD green 120gb?
    around 1.5-2k budget ko.

    to add, okay lang ba nakalaylay or nakadikit
    si ssd sa wall ng cpu using double sided tape?

    thanks!

  • thoughts on PNY XLR8 CS3030 2TB M.2 NVMe since 3115 TBW ang rating totoo kaya? planning in using it as main drive sa laptop ko tanggalin ko yung 256gb.

    Acer Helios

    1x512gb Silicon Power A80 (main drive), 1x256gb WD SN720, 1x2tb HDD

  • dumating na yung PNY XLR8 CS3030 2TB M.2 NVMe problema hanggang automatic repair tapos diagnostics lang di umaabot na magboot sa windows laptop ko, meron ba nakaexperience dito? bale nireplace ko lang yung 256gb WD SN720 para gawing lagayan ng file sana.
  • Sandisk Ultra 1TB as a Steam drive good for P5,500? Much cheaper kasi than other TLC choices like the 860 Evo, WD Blue, and MX500.

    I'm looking at 2.5" drives now because both my M.2 slots are used now.

  • if the review is correct PNY 1TB XLR8 is better, higher TBW and faster read and write, DDR4 cache. sa price na lang siguro magkakatalo yan.
  • Ok lang kaya DRAM-less SSD drives like yung Western Digital Blue SN550 M.2 NVMe? Pang games lang
  • Yup, using one right now.
