Just what I needed! Game library expansion

Crucial P3 2TB PCIe 3.0 3D NAND NVMe M.2 SSD, up to 3500MB/s - CT2000P3SSD8
Crucial P3 2TB PCIe 3.0 3D NAND NVMe M.2 SSD, up to 3500MB/s - CT2000P3SSD8

Pros: Upgraded from 1TB M.2 SSD simple swap. Works great with my Asus Z390 ROG ITX motherboard M.2 PCIE 3.0. Used with the included heatsink from the motherboard & temps stayed really low. Being an ITX build temps were 40c idle & 57c playing COD MW. Did a 5GB transfer test using Black Magic Disk Speed test software & did pretty good even thought I was doing more then its advertised. Also did ATTO Disk Benchmark & tested with default setting & got exactly what was advertised. Note, when in game my CPU i7-9700k 87% load was reaching temps of 80c. So a lot of heat was being creating & again it manage to stay below 57c preventing thermal throttle.

Cons: As always the consumer has to take the loss of loosing what the manufacturers dont want to loose. 199GB you dont get to use, reserved for SSD Firmware functionality. You get 1.8TB

Overall Review: In this fast technological developing world 1TB of storage for the digital creators & gamers just doesn't cut it anymore. With 30GB updates from Adobe cloud software, plugins, game updates & expansion packs a 2TB storage should be the standard now. You also feel limited when you have 500GB to work with, not good feeling when you have to remove things you want to keep. With the speeds of this drive & size its ideal for 4K video production. Overall its just what I needed & dont feel limited. Recommend to start BIG or go home.

Stable Easy XMP 2.0 3600Mhz OC with intel B560 Mobo

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB RT 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) AMD Optimized Desktop Memory Model CMN16GX4M2Z3600C18
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB RT 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) AMD Optimized Desktop Memory Model CMN16GX4M2Z3600C18

Pros: Low latency for 3600 mem. Has no issues running stable with one click XMP 2.0 3600Mhz OC with intel B560 motherboards. Ran Intel Extreme Tuning Utility for an hour, test passed. NO DOA here. RGB seems brighter then some other brands which is nice.

Overall Review: Pleasant experience unlike some Kingston Hyper X Ive used where you have to jump from slot to slot to get both working at the same time. These Corsairs were an ease to work with & a few more FPS from my old 3000Mhz ram.
