but benchmark says otherwise. HUGE HUGE difference. https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/HP-EX920-NVMe-PCIe-M2-1TB-vs-Crucial-MX500-1TB/m488611vsm406099
Good point. Thank u
Amazon HDD really that bad? Newegg is bit expensive and had to pay extra shipping price...
thank you for the information. What is PWM and DC mode? Do I run these with different application/software?
Enthoo Pro M Acrylic is my case. And MSI Z270 SLI PLUS ATX LGA1151 is my motherboard. The case came with 2 x Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 82.1 CFM 140 mm Fan (It's 3 pin fan - 1 front and 1 rear)
The question now is: Would I be able to add 3 x Original fans (Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 82.1 CFM 140 mm Fan 3 pin - 1+ front and 2 on top) Will my motherboard support these? How can I see if my motherboard will support 3 or 4 pin fans? Thank you.
Then thats great. Would u be able to recommend me good 120mm or 140mm fans?
I see. Generally speaking, I will browse internet, play games, do some video editing and streaming and transfer some few gb files at times (not always). Would I preferably need heatsink? If so which heatsink would be best combined with one of these Sabrent Rocket 1 TB NVMe (Not 4.0 version) or HP EX920.
Bump. Please help
Yea. I would like to keep my 240 PNY as my boot and 1 TB SSD for games and microsoft office apps etc. and HDD for just storage.
thank you so much for your great insightful advice. much appreciated man.
Are you saying there is no difference in speed, read/write and durability when using SATA 2.5" vs NVMe SSD?? I want faster, better read/write and durable SSD that can last me 3-5 years... :(
Is this good SSD? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rwcRsY/pny-xlr8-cs3030-1-tb-m2-2280-nvme-solid-state-drive-m280cs3030-1tb-rb
Also, is WD Black or Blue which is better? I have WD Black 4 TB in mind for 175$ is that too expensive?
What other reliable good HDD can you recommend?
So I cant have 2 NVMe SSDs in 2xM.2 slots? or 1 NVMe SSD and 2.5" SSD?
I see. Since I have very limited knowledge I may sound like a fool but why wont sata 5 & 6 wont work? should I be able to use all 6 x satas? Sorry if noob question...
On top of my current 2.5" SSD and 1 TB 3.5" HDD, can I add the following, will it have enough slot on the motherboard to plug them without any interference? Please advise me if there will be any compatibility issues? Thank you.

Thanks for the comprehensive input. So should I get a 2.5" SATA SSD or NVMe SSD? Which is better choice in terms of durability and reliability? Can you also provide me with few selections links? I want to be 2 x 500 GB or 1 TB good SSD. Pls help me.
I dont really understand what is the use of more core and what is multithreaded mean??? what are some real time example? Sorry if this is noob question.
I see, which GPU is better option for workstation mostly doing content development, streaming, etc. How about CPU is AMD cheaper and better than intel 9900 series (which of the 9900 series is bang for buck value)?
Are ryzen, especially ryzen 5 3600 reliable in quality department compared to intel? what are the new series of GPUs for this year? It seems RTX is the name of new GTX yea and goes 2060 2070 2080? correct me if I am wrong. I've been away from pc world for over 2 years. lol
Nah, its not virus or driver fault. When I open many browser tabs, programs often it would take 5-10 seconds to load. When I press on program whilst loading it goes to not responding and back to normal.
Anyways back to the topic. Can you please advise on my question? Thank you :)
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 better than Intel CPU? How about GPU? :)
Could you please kindly advise me on best value GPU, CPU and Motherboard combination that are compatible with each other? I will prioritize work first, content development second, and gaming third.
Thank you! :)
I have MSI Z270 SLI PLUS ATX LGA1151 Motherboard, is it bad? Not compatible with new GPUs? Which mobo should I get to be compatible? Please advise.
What is the best SATA HDD for me? Any recommendation?
Preferably around 3 TB would be good? I don't think I have extra SATA cable that came with Mobo... do I need to purchase two - 1 for new HDD and 1 for psu??? O_o
Preferably around 3 TB would be good? I don't think I have extra SATA cable that came with Mobo... do I need to purchase one?
Thanks for the response. So another HDD SATA hard drive won't have any problems in terms of not enough pin/plugs on m mobo, yeah?
So the option here is between dell inspiron or cheap lenovo?
Thing is I cant seem to find Messenger Lite on app store... it seems to be effecting my main account and other dummy/game facebook accounts are working flawless, i can switch between them without a problem
Please try now. Messenger is not working on my main facebook account. The actual facebook is logging in and working just fine.
Thank you. Sounds fair. Still not sure what or how NVME and 2.5" looks like on motherboard, lol.
how do i monitor the speeds (read/write) on these ssds? Any program that does that? :)
But is it? I cant use 2 x intel 660p Series with ASRock X470 Taichi?
If Zen 2 is coming in few months, maybe I should wait? :)
ASRock X470 Taichi has only 1 M.2 slot?
Thanks man. Got another question if you dont mind - what is Zen 2 and how it has upgrade future? sorry for noob question.
I was planning to get 1660 Ti. RTX 2070 or 2060 better bang for buck?
You are absolutely right. I have a gaming rig and this one is more likely to be workstation with mostly photo/video editing, rendering and streaming as well as data spreadsheets etc.
What do u mean by save cables by going with MX500 SATA SSD comes in M.2? The Intel - 660p Series 1 TB is also M.2-2280 - is there any difference? Pardon if I dont know really know all these.
Intel and Crucial are both M.2 2280 right? Therefore I chose the cheaper one.
1 TB SSD is for OS and other 1 TB SSD is for running games, programs etc. I have planned another 3 TB HDD for storage.
Please advice if i can make some improvements :)
Not more than 1400$
I heard the wifi on tachi is not really good. Maybe consider buying independent wifi card such as TP-Link - TL-WDN4800 PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter? Is there any better wifi card with better receiving wifi signal etc.?
I was thinking of using Adobe products such as premiere and photoshop...
Can u please tell me why the taichi is much better/high-end mobo compared to others? How about mid-range good mobos? would you suggest msi gaming plus vs msi gaming plus carbon or asus??
If i download the latest one, it contains every previous BIOS updates, yes?
Is 7A59v1A the latest update for my mobo??
hi mark, my mobo is MSI - Z270 SLI PLUS ATX LGA1151 Motherboard. Can u help?
X470 better than M450? That's just what I read...
Intel is better for games cuz of strong single core power yeah? But as I mentioned, for workstation and little bit of gaming Ryzen would be a better choice?
How about Mobo - which mobo is better for Ryzen 7 2700X? My budget would be around 1500-ish....
Just a question - isn't it better to get 2 x Intel - 660p Series 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive instead of 1 TB 2.5" SSD?
Guys, which card would you recommend besides the mentioned GPU?
Is the Ryzen 7 2700x good for both photo/video editing & rendering as well as gaming?
