    Four things:

    1: Terrifically useful site.

    2: Thank you for posting this. I discovered that a 2X water cooler can fit in the D-frame chassis. I’m using the Asus Crosshair V mobo with the AMD FX-9590 5 Gigahertz CPU.
    I’ve ordered the NZXT Kraken 61 cooler, which is 20 mm wider than the Corsair. Hope it fits.
    I have 2 Toshiba 850 Pro SSDs on order. Might stuff in a Velociraptor for backup.

    3: I’m a software developer, so interested in CPU/Memory/Disk speed rather than graphics.
    I’m more than willing to test various components, especially if they are provided or subsidized. Perfectly capable of executing/writing reviews. I do live in Australia – don’t know whether that is a positive or negative.

    4: I was about to pull the trigger for the PlexStore M6e drive (256 Mb) as the boot drive, but since I read your m.2 overview, perhaps you can suggest something different…

      Thanks for the comps and I am going to believe you meant that you have two ‘Samsung’ 850 pro SSDs on order…not Toshiba. When considering your predicament, I would wonder what your motherboard (or adapter) can accomodate, a X2 or x4 M.2 SSD. If I had the choice, I would go for the Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe X4 SSD… RAMCity sells them up your way…or rather down your way.

      Pass the word on to other regarding our site if you get a chance and thanks…

        I looked at the XP941, but it doesn’t appear to boot under Windows. Thinking to run the development system (Delphi RAD) on the XP941, and boot off one of the “Samibas”. I think it’s wise to invest in M.2 drives, as they can be reconfigured as things change – the SATA SSD & spinning rust drives get moved down the chain & Girl Friday ends up with them.

        When the ROG site opens up again, will be happy to spruik up SSDR.

        What are you using for a mobo? The XP941 boots off of newer boards, such as the ASRock Extreme6, 990FX and newest OC Formula…as well as other manufacturer boards I am sure.

        I’m using the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z – We use AMD because we don’t want to see an Intel monopoly. The board does not have m.2. Next build, perhaps. In the meantime, PCIe adapters seem to be the way to go.
