It's cheap for a reason. Don't buy a QLC drive.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)

Any good 2TB m.2

Also I have a question with a 2TB M.2 For a gaming/streaming build would I need another drive to move my user files off to another drive. I don't have that many music, video, or pictures as most of that is on one drive.

NVME is not faster or better for gaming in any way its only a single second faster at most



If M.2 is a must get a Samsung 860 Evo in M.2 form just note that this will still use a SATA port on the motherboard even if mounted in an M.2 slot
The 660P can be as slow if not slower than even a 7200 RPM HDD thats why its so cheap

It's great for a storage/gaming drive. Don't use it for your OS.

Its not good for those either any old 2,5 SSD is just as fast for gaming and a good 7200 RPM HDD is better and cheaper if you need mass storeage as copy speed on the 660P drops like a rock when copying large files to a point where the HDD is just as fast

I'd rather save on the space and for a gaming drive I'm not copying large files so that's not an issue. Bulky HDD trays take up to much space.

Corsair Force Series MP510 1.92TB, M.2 (CSSD-F1920GBMP510)

I may get it's sibling from Silicon Power (P34A80) but those are max 1TB.
I would not bother with a 660p QLC.
These TLC drives cost a little more, depends on region and capacity but they are better chips and better controller, 8x higher rated durability.

These are 3.0x4 capable and achieve decent speeds, many reviews on web for both Corsair and SP drive at least in 1TB size.

660p, P1, QLC, ... thanks no.

Linus did a video on them. It all depends on how you want to use it. The first half of the video is about how bad they are, then the second half is the reality. The reliability of them is set at 200TB written with a 5 year warranty, which is significantly less than TLC, but still more than most people will write in that amount of time. The speed does drop on large file copying, but how often are you transferring large files? They drop in speed when you fill them up, but that's the same with most other SSDs. I'd recommend watching the video, then deciding if you're in that target audience.

I've been using the 1tb model for my game drive for about 3 months now with no issues. I would have gone SATA, but I wanted to fill my last M.2 slot which is only NVMe. My recommendation would be to go for SATA since you can get them cheaper, but if you need NVMe and fit the audience, then it's perfectly fine.
