Amazing PCIe4 speeds

Seagate FireCuda 530 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.4 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ZP1000GM3A013
Seagate FireCuda 530 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.4 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ZP1000GM3A013

Pros: I've trusted Seagates for decades, and I will keep buying them. I bought the 500MB for my OS and the 1TB for my games. Speeds are amazing, and I wish more people would buy Seagate. Some can say it is Seagate's fault for falling behind getting their foot in the SSD door, but I think they did a fantastic job sprinting ahead of the competition. This speed was achieved on an EVGA Z60 Classified.

Cons: None what so ever.

Overall Review: Yeah I'll buy more. People need to get off the Samsung juice. Seagate has been making storage solutions for over 4 decades, and I will continue to buy from them.

Most Critical Review
OKGEAR 36" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Right Angle, UV Blue, Backward Compatible with 3 Gbps and 1.5 Gbps
OKGEAR 36" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Right Angle, UV Blue, Backward Compatible with 3 Gbps and 1.5 Gbps

Pros: It's UV and it's the length I need since I have the leaning tower of puter (a.k.a. MozartTx case)

Cons: This stuff really is cheaply made. I just need to make sure I am extra careful taking them out. OKGEAR MUST learn to use higher quality plastic. I certainly wouldn't have minded paying a little more for this cable if they used better plastics.

Overall Review: NewEgg, get a hold of your contact at OKGEAR and tell them to use better plastics!!!

Wow on the air movement!

1STPLAYER High CFM Bitcoin Miner Fan, 4-Pin PWM, 1500-4000RPM High Air Flow High Speed, for Mining Frame Miner Rig  Case, Crypto Coin BTC ETH, CPU and Liquid Cooler Fan, Radiator, 120*120*38mm, Black
1STPLAYER High CFM Bitcoin Miner Fan, 4-Pin PWM, 1500-4000RPM High Air Flow High Speed, for Mining Frame Miner Rig Case, Crypto Coin BTC ETH, CPU and Liquid Cooler Fan, Radiator, 120*120*38mm, Black

Pros: 173CFM! No silly LED lighting

Cons: None so as long as you understand more air = more noise. No silly LED lighting for those that like them

Overall Review: 173CFM? Yeah you bet this thing is going to be LOUD. Even at half the speeds these blow more air than a regular fan. That is why I always try to get 38mm thick fans. If you sticking these in a case people are usually not close to, these at 100% are going to keep things cool. If you plan on using them with a pc case, you best make sure to confirm your fan controller can handle the 1AMP load. I played it safe and went with an Aqua computer octo-8. Sitting next to them at over 60% can get pretty loud. I basically run them at 40-50% for games, and 100% for benchmarking.

Sad about the chips...

Patriot Signature Line 8GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR5 4800 (PC5 38400) Desktop Memory Model PSD58G480041
Patriot Signature Line 8GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR5 4800 (PC5 38400) Desktop Memory Model PSD58G480041

Pros: Works like a charm, and I've had them running at DDR5 6000.

Cons: 1 stick uses Hynix. The other uses Micron. Pretty sad about that, but it wasn't a matched set, so I really can't complain.

Overall Review: If there was something I'd change, it is that you use all Hynix and pleasantly surprise the overclockers with an amazing underdog.

No batteries = win

Logitech M500s 910-005783 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired 4000 dpi Mouse

Pros: Exactly what I needed. Multi-button programming, no batteries to never worry about dead batteries and the option to free spin wheel for fast scrolling. I hope Logitech never stops making corded mice.

Overall Review: I recommend it, and this is the 3rd one I've purchased.

Long term Seagate user not disappointed.

Seagate Barracuda 120 SSD 500GB Internal Solid State Drive - 2.5 Inch SATA 6GB/s for Computer Desktop PC Laptop (ZA500CM1A003)

Pros: Come on. We all know the pros of SSDs. =)

Cons: Zero!

Overall Review: I have been a Seagate user from the mid 90s during the Cheetah days. It was the company I found the most reliable back then between the big 3 (Maxtor, Western Digital, Seagate). I stuck with them, and I never looked back. It did get me a little sad to see them take so long to fully jump on the SSD wagon. This is my first SSD (What can I say. My mechanical Seagates keep on going), and I wanted to make sure my first SSD was a Seagate. I can only hope it will be as reliable as my mechanical Seagates. Seagate software confirmed the SSD is healthy. I'll be looking forward to another Seagate SSD!
