SN850X 2 TB Arrived today, popped it in the Jonsbo heatsink, snug would be a generous word... It's tight back there.

The 500GB HAS 2200Mb/s read and 800MB/s write, and is going in the usb enclosure. Pretty awesome to see read speeds over usb over 900MB/s in practice, I was worried it was limited at first by the usb bus somehow around 500MB/s till I realised that copy was from a sata ssd.

Odd, M.2 at the back of a motherboard, no airflow though, hope the heatsink can keep it cool. :cool:

Seems like somewhat common placement for higher end ITX boards, and yeah originally I was going to go with the front slot w/ included heatsink, but I prefer the OS drive to have the direct CPU link, so I opted for a slim heatsink otherwise the back panel wont go on... fingers crossed that temps aren't too bad, it's purely there as a game drive so I suppose time will tell, but I won't be doing other data intensive work on it, so as long as it can keep up with direct storage I'll be wrapped.

I thought these products died away, but hey for every train there are passengers.
For years now I only use wireless mice.

New drive certainly seems to have the goods compared to the others in my system, quick and dirty bench for an indication on speeds.

Yes absolutely. I don't see the point of a wireless keyboard but a wireless mouse has good reasons. I really dislike a mouse cable pulling and pushing my mouse around.

After being burned on and off over the years with wireless mice crapping out, I've had a Corsair Dark Core RBG Pro SE for a while now, and it's flawless, little wireless charging puck on my desk, cable port as a backup if the wireless ever shits the bed, it's very nice.

As I couldn't decide on a new case for my newest ryzen I went with the Streacom BC1 v2 open bench table. Black looks great and vertical is now an option too.


edit: Waiting on a few parts. The GTX 1080 with a beefier aftermarket air cooler (left) and the EKWB water cooled 1080 Ti (right).

The folks here at TPU would like a word...
Eh, why so serious? I was being jocular, or just mucking around.

I mean, after all, it's undeniable that nVidia's RTX 4090 has only one miserable 'X', while the XFX MERC 310 RX 7900 XTX has 5, that's raw 'X' powah right there!

Fair enough. It's one thing to be joking in a real life conversation and everyone pick up on it due to vocal inflection and intonation. In text however, jokes intended to be subtle can come off as completely serious unless you denote them with " /s " or " /jk " or something else to indicate you're not serious.

Sorry, I'd thought everyone had caught on the joke, I'd mentioned Steve of GN who had made a vid about it where he'd talked about the number of X'es of the card.that makes it unbeatable, so to say.

I may be a fanATIc or AMD fanboy, but I know where the RX 7900 XTX stands against the RTX 4090, perhaps it's up to the RX 7950 XTX to beat that monstrous card, definitely not the 7900 XTX.

Sorry, I'd thought everyone had caught on the joke, I'd mentioned Steve of GN who had made a vid about it where he'd talked about the number of X'es of the card.that makes it unbeatable, so to say.

I may be a fanATIc or AMD fanboy, but I know where the RX 7900 XTX stands against the RTX 4090, perhaps it's up to the RX 7950 XTX to beat that monstrous card, definitely not the 7900 XTX.

I don't watch Gamer's NeXus but it coaXed a chuckle from me. Congrats on the RX XTX by XFX. I'm guessing it'll be eXceptional and eXcel in gaming - possibly even be eXtraordinary.
