2600k + Samsung 950?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was going to upgrade to broadwell-e but haven't been too impressed with it. So I'm still rocking my 2600k at 4.5 and it's doing great. However my SSDs are getting long in the tooth and I want to switch them out. Does anyone have any experience running the Samsung 950 in a PCIE adapter?

Looked all over online and can't really find any info with NME + Sandybridge configurations.

I know I'm limited on PCIE lanes but it should work, right?

Unless you're constantly moving large files or something, you probably won't notice the increased speed.

I won't notice it because the 2600k is nerfing any of the performance gains or the difference between my Kingston HyperX's in RAID0 is negligible?

The m.2 drive will be faster, but not something you will notice. Look at reviews online and it will show faster read and write times in benchmarks, but actual applications won't seem any faster. For example, check out the Linus Tech Tip video about m.2 drives that shows game loading times being basically exactly the same between the m.2 and ssd.
