MyDigitalSSD 240GB (256GB) BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCI Express 3.0 x4 (PCIe Gen3 x4) NVMe MLC SSD
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Blazing fast file transfers. I've had one other NVMe drive, a Samsung 950, and this one beats it on real-world tests that I run using identical 16GB folders. It's close though.
Great price for NVMe MLC

Cons: Very low write scores on AS SSD benchmark test. However, I suspect the AS SSD program is not at all accurate for this drive. The real world tests that I run are very thorough. I copy 2 separate 16GB file folders with different types of files from external to HDD; HDD back to SSD; then SSD to HDD. It is the fastest drive I've ever owned in all phases of this test, and I've owned a bunch of them, running this test well over 100 times.
Slowish boot times for SSD. I have SATA 3 drives that are faster in this respect (28 sec reboot and 16 sec cold boot). I don't place too much stock in this, however, since I have experienced several occasions when the cheapest TLC drives boot faster than most top-tier drives that have considerably better all around performance. There are many factors that can influence boot times.

Other Thoughts: I'm using a PCI adapter for this drive rather than a native m.2 slot. Maybe that or the fact that it is a new model affects the AS SSD scores.
Overall I'm happy with this drive and would buy it again in heartbeat at the $120 price I paid for it.

Intel Cooling Fan/Heatsink
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs I like this heatsink a lot one a lot 01/08/2017

This review is from: Intel Cooling Fan/Heatsink

Pros: Easy to install
Very good cooling
Quiet

Cons: non

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this after my most recent of 6 installs with this fan/heatsink. If you find installing 3rd party coolers your least favorite of all facets of DIY PC building, then you will like this product. It uses the push pin method, exactly the same as stock, but it is even easier because they snap right in on first push, which is not always the case with stock.
Of course that wouldn't mean anything if it didn't keep your cpu cool but this gives me 5c cooler right after install and it does good job of keeping temp down after that.
Disclaimer: I don't overclock and am not a hard core gamer. That said, I played Fallout 4 for 2 hours yesterday on system with i5-6500 and R7 370 video card and cpu never broke 50c

Also, this was first experience with PC Rush and so far, so good. I almost never order from any other seller except NewEgg, but PC Rush had what I wanted so I took a chance. Good job,
