This drive is the best I have ever purchased and I am now spoiled on nvme drives. Installation was a breeze and no cables to cram in behind my case either.
Make sure you read in your motherboard manual the speed at which this drive can run with certain pcie lanes being used. If I had used pcie4 on my motherboard it would be running at x2 which is half the speed this drive can utilize.
Also, to another review posted about the lanes on your CPU; Yes the 6700k has 16 lanes for use of pcie 3.0 which is used for your graphics card most of the time. HOWEVER, the reviewer failed to say that the z170 chipset hives you an additional 20 lanes. Which means your GPU can use all those lanes on your CPU and your nvme will function at its best using the chipset lanes. Intel has stated this so please please do not go out and buy a $1000 processor because you feel as if you need more lanes because you don’t. Thank you for taking the time to read my review this is honestly a very very good SSD.
