There is some really big price differences in the adapters so I'd like to know!

If you're talking about the PCI-e adapters for M.2 drives, I bought a cheap $5 one off of eBay for my Samsung 950 Pro and it works just fine.

Can you boot off of one of those? or is it strictly storage? I wouldn't mind having an m.2 drive for editing...

Yes, I'm using it as a boot drive. I think I posted about it in this thread a couple of weeks ago as a FYI for anyone else who may be interested.

The Samsung 950 Pro drives use a controller that is compatible with legacy BIOS systems. This means it can be seen and used as a boot drive. I did a fresh Windows 10 install via USB (unplugged all other drives just to be sure) and it was easy as pie. Windows 10 installer saw the drive and let me install to it. The only BIOS setting I changed was one for "Addon ROM Display Mode". I changed it from "Force BIOS" to "Keep current", although I don't know if it even matters.

Speeds in CDM are exactly where they should be. I'm limited by PCI-e 2.0, but I still get over 1600 MB/s sequential read speeds. Booting to Windows login takes less than 15 seconds (about half the time it used to take with my 840 EVO, but that was on Win 7).

I did get some thermal throttling on the drive before I put on some copper heatsinks. Got a ~10C reduction in temperatures and no more throttling.

First thing, do not waste time on a x1 pcie ssd adapter , unless its pcie 2.0 on both the slot and the card and you only want to use one drive

I mean something like this https://www.amazon.com/IO-Crest-Port-PCI-Express-SY-PEX40039/dp/B005B0A6ZS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1467996996&sr=8-3&keywords=pci+to+sata
States 2sata 3 ports at 6gbps with the chipset ASM1061

I wouldn't want to get an m.2 ssd since they are more expensive and I already own sata ssd's.

Boot time will be increased because the drive has to be initialized, you may see faster read and write rates but might lose out to the stock intel on latency.

Also two sata 3 SSDs on an x1 will bottleneck them, a gen 2 x1 slot can only provide 500 mb throughput


In the past I've used them when I needed more storage, not for faster anything, especially the marvell 88SE lines.

I picked up an EVGA Classified3 for a buck and a quarter shipped, and a w3680 for 80$ The CPU (w3680) prices are coming down. 80 bucks is not too bad.
So far so good, I have it on an open table 4ghz running Linux crunching BOINC WCG for a day or two to make sure it is ok. 6
Then I am going to replace an Asus Rampage3 Gene and install win7 then I guess I am going to try win 10 while it is still free.
I picked up a few win7 keys so I an going to load win 10 to a couple systems and lock the OS to the board for future use.

The R3 Gene has one bad ram slot, so I can only run dual channel mem. No big deal, but I want the extra PCI-E slots with the Classified3 anyway.
I think it is a better board overall.

We all make mistakes!! Lesson learned.
The slot on the R3 Gene got damaged when I wanted to add a 3rd stick of mem.
I shut down, got distracted, then came back.
Well I put the ram in the wrong way. I hate the darn slots with only the one lever. I rather have the lever on each side.
So I think it is in right, I go to get a flashlight it was dark in there. I reached for the light and my arm hit the power button. OH no Mr.Bill
If you wonder wwhat happens when a stick of ram is no backwards and only secure on the one lever side. I can tell you is is not good!!
The CPU is fine, the memory is fine, just burnt one contact in the slot and the computer will not see any ram installed in it.

That's a disaster. I always disconnect the power cord from the PSU and press the power button few times to discharge any power that's still in the capacitors before attempting to mess with the installed hardware. Takes a few seconds more but it's the safest way to avoid hardware damage.

Soo. Im sitting with X58 platform like two years. I bought W3520 + Pegatron IPMTB-GS combo for 449PLN (~ 150$ i guess, PC parts in Poland is horribly expensive for no reasion). Year later i got tha EX58-UD3R for ~30$ with shipping with broken socket with no ram detection symptoms but i luckily repaired them and i tried overclock this beast. I managed to get 4.5Ghz on 1.4V on core http://valid.x86.fr/2vqpez but it is for testing max stable overclock (ive get 95-100 degrees on cores). ATM im sitting on 3.5Ghz @ 1.16-1.18vcore http://valid.x86.fr/rqxmzw and i see a CPU or mobo degradation because i cant get system stability above 4.01Ghz regardless of vcore.

Annnd yes, i want to be in X58 Xeon Club. yay.

Sorry for my poor engrish.

PS: I still have that Pegatron motherboard so maybe in future i will testing this board with 6-core Xeons.

My X56050 start thermal throttling at 95deg C, this means that the temp does not exceed that temp. If yours is "stable" at 95degs, that actually means it is running too hot and is effectively downclocking...
