[RT] Plextor M6e PCI Express SSD Will Be Available Exclusively At Newegg - Page 4

post #31 of 56
I don't get why any gamer would want this. It does not have pretty colors, it is not covered in LEDs, it doesn't say gaming in the name.

As a professional gamer, I only buy certified gaming gear, like the MSI Z87 GAMING motherboard, the G500 GAMING mouse, the GTX 760 GAMING....

Gaming.

It doesn't have to be branded as gaming for it to be used in gaming. In fact many gaming orientated parts lack features, that would come on a more full featured product.

Gaming branding usually means its functional for only gamers and lacking other features gamers are not normally interested in. Your motherboard is a prime example of this. This allows gaming branded parts to cost less than their full featured parts, giving a better performance for your dollar.

This hard drive features higher performance than a normal sata 3.0 drives. Giving you faster load times etc. However there are better products out there than this. One of them being the Muskin Scorpion Series pci-e drives.

I think you are missing the sarcasm in that post. smile.gif

Samsung XP941 M.2 smokes this anyway, too bad it's only available for purchase at one shop in Australia of all places.

I can't wait to do a Z97/X99 build with a M.2 drive slotted flat against the motherboard between the PCIe connectors.

I look forward to cutting the number of cables in my build by almost half. With the death of optical media and these PCB-mount SSD's, the entire front half of your traditional computer case isn't needed anymore. smile.gif

I've been wanting a case for a few years now that eliminates the drive cages and lops off the front 5 inches or so. Obviously bad for thick front mounted push/pull water coolers, but awesome for air cooling.

On the contrary, a flat-fronted case (with no drive cages to get in the way) is perfect for a 360 or 480 as you don't have to worry about the cages.

Absolutely if the requisite depth is there. I was referring more to the lopping off the front 5-6" as being bad for watercooling. Something like this hasty photoshop with just enough room for fans tucked up front:

you could still do that and put 3-4 2.5" drive bays in front of the psu, room enough for 2 ssds and 2 1TB laptop drives
