from completed build Zensible (1070)
This is my first NVMe SSD and it is absolute EPIC!!!
Its sososososo fast you just can't go back to SATA3 discs after this. Sometimes when I move files or download things, Windows don't even realize it have to show a timer, because the disc is already done doing the job before the timer shows up (also thanks to a 100mbps fiber connection when I download).
Its a little downside that Samsungs SSD tools don't so far supports this drive, but its pretty much just plug and play so not a big deal. Do yourself a treat though, look it up on Google to find newer drivers than those Windows finds on its own, its well worth it in terms of speed.
If it should be improved, it could use a heat shield/sink of some sort, its sometimes toasty hot and brings windows to its knees, but a restart and its back up in speed again. Maybe again a driver issue, but its in general too awesome to really complaint about.
