Rename the file type to .rom is usually what I've done in that situation.......

I'm still waiting for the Plextor and/or Sandisk units. The crucial unit I bought from Amazon was "ok" on reads but plain sucked on the write speeds. So I sent it back to await the nicer drives. Transcend is the same company as Adata, I've never been a fan of either company myself.

Was the Crucial noticeably slow in everyday tasks? I really like crucial SSDs since they are reliable.

I do a lot of file transfers for work and other associated things, and I wasn't pleased with most of its read and write performance, in sequential read it did fine, in everything else, it was way slower than either of my plextor or sandisk 2.5" SSD's, between 50-75% slower using AS SSD, ATTO, crystal Disk Mark, and in day to day, it felt like a normal HDD. I have two of the M500s in the 960gb flavor in raid 0 on my wife's machine, and they are doing great, but they needed the raid to make them that way.

They are fine for daily use, however the larger capacities will be much faster especially in a raid configuration.

Agreed!

For the sake of it here are a couple benchmarks of the Crucial M.2 NGFF 120GB SSD compared to my Crucial M4 120GB SSD

@hyp36rmax: Thank's but I already sold the nepton 140xl.
I can't mount it in the rear of prodigy (pump hit the radiator) and since it's white prodigy I doubt mounting it in the front = good idea.

Anyone have problem connecting wifi (broadcom ac) to 5ghz-N (RT-N66 in my case) with control channel above 153 ?

Anyone here installed the BitsPower or EKWB full mobo block?

If so do you have any stats from it? (heat from stock and heat from OC)

I've got my EK full cover block on mine, but I've not finished the system build yet, have had some illness in the family that's taken priority, but I'll post results as I get them.
