    OMG FINALLY! My v3 M.2 was doing my head in with how slow it is, and even though this is exactly twice the price of it won't stop me buying it. Nuh uh. That extra speed on top will be just..totes worth it.

    You'd think they'd have support for 10GbE, or a second TB port to allow a 10GbE adapter.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    Re: Seagate FireCuda 520 PCIe Gen 4 x4 SSD for gamers launched

    Same with my Samsung 970 evo, but my motherboard have something that should act as a heat sink, though i have little faith in it i must admit.
    I have been contemplating upon building new case and modding that, maybe i should mod my aorus extreme motherboard too, or at least do away with that heat sink and silly RGB light on the board.
    And maybe add some heat sinks to nvme drive ( the 2 i will have if i win one of these suckers )

    Really topping it up with the god awful Gigabyte RGB fusion software ( that do not work on my computer anymore ) then i am probably better off with no RGB VS the default rainbow BS i have now.

    "capacities of 500MB, 1TB and 2TB" who'd want a 500 meg nvme

    Aw shucks, I only have a non gaming SSD

    Though to be fair the endurance seems quite high... if it holds up...
