Samsung 980 PRO MZ-V8P250BW 250GB M.2 (2280) NVMe SSD

Seems like a decent price for this 250GB NVMe SSD.


Gigabyte Aorus Liquid Cooler 360 All-in-one Liquid Cooler with Circular LCD Display

Not sure if this is worth it at this price as you could probably get a 360mm AIO CPU cooler for less, without the LED display and RGB Fusion. Staticice lowest seems to be $333 (excluding delivery) at time of posting.

    $129 for a 256gb nvme SSD. Not a good deal.

    For gaming difference between like a 970 EVO plus vs 980 PRO is barely noticeable. You'd rather get like a 500gb 970 over 250gb 980 for the same price.

    Before anyone bashed on the price please remember this is PCIE gen 4 and also enterprise grade durability in terms of TBW

    •  

      It isn't enterprise grade durability though, the 970 Pro's were decent MLC but the 980 Pros are QLC, so worse than the 970 Evo. Only 150 TBW on this, the same as the 970 Evo, likely due to a bit more overprovisioning etc just to bring it up to par with a consumer drive.

      The selling point here is speed, and while PCIE gen 4 itself isn't really a selling point, there's some very limited circumstances where the better performance vs the 970 Evo at low queue depths might help. The controller is really good too. But I'd consider this a step backwards for those looking for durable drives. For enterprise they'd be looking at optane, especially in this size.
