Faster Than the Samsung 980 Pro
Pros: - Large Capacity - Very Fast Read Speeds - Very fast Write Speeds - Looks Great - Heat sink appears removable
Overall Review: Fantastic drive that is very fast and looks great. Just make sure you have enough clearance for the large heat sink with your build! Crystal Disk Mark - 7297.89 MB/s READ vs 6633.31 Samsung 980 Pro - 6824.29 MB/s WRITE vs 4962.02 Samsung 980 Pro AS SSD - 5981.50 MB/s Read vs 4938.44 Samsung 980 Pro - 5798.70 MB/s Write vs 3760.21 Samsung 980 Pro
Made For Core Corsair Customers
Pros: - magnetic mount is nice - lights look great - everything you need
Cons: - not fully sure the point - stuck in the Corsair ecosystem with lights like this - you will live and die by iCue
Overall Review: These are defiantly made for a specific core adopter of Corsair products. If you are big into iCue and have a complete Corsair setup these make sense. For those that mix and match then I would go a different route.
Power Your Next Build!
Pros: - Fully Modular - Energy Efficient - 10 Year Warrant - Zero RPM Mode
Cons: - Ability to enable/disable Zero RPM Mode - No iCUE Controls - RGB would be cool (not necessary)
Overall Review: Solid choice if you are looking for a reliable power supply from a reputable company. If you have an i-series PSU (for example, the AX1600i), you can enable zero RPM mode in iCUE under the Cooling tab. If your PSU has zero RPM mode but is not iCUE-enabled, you will not be able to turn on or control this feature.
