It's nice to have this thing as a boot drive. I initially installed Windows w/o updating the NVMe protocol in BIOS, so I wasn't getting the screaming fast read/ write speeds as advertised. Updated the BIOS, reset Windows and bam! Who has time for load screens amirite?

This SSD load data so fast, it's not funny. I can load large model files very fast, I can load large funky game data in a fraction of a second. It's kinda frustrating how it wound up between my 2 GPUs, those GPUs can get kinda hot. Aside from the heat issue, I'm careful with the SSD. I try not to write data on this frequently, and only write stuff that I'm going to load frequently. It's very expensive for 400 GB (almost 1 USD per GigaByte), but that makes up for the ridiculously fast read time. I think a PCI-E SSD is a great idea, and the Intel 750 does a great job.
