If you want to buy the JEYI M.2 adaptor, I'd suggest you to buy the JEYI Knight instead of JEYI SK8

Indeed the price is doubled but the full length PCI-e X16 pins helps to hold the card better than the short PCI-e X4 pins
Still waiting for the delivery, as I ordered each of them on 2 different days

sweet thanks a lot for the tip! save me some troubles doing research again

My server is using ASUS M5A99X Rev 2.0 motherboard so I couldn't get the full speed of the SSD since the motherboard only supports PCI-e 2.0
If it was running on PCI-e 3.0, it should reach around 1700MB/s

But since it's a server, I couldn't care less as long as the boot-up is faster than conventional SATA SSD's

Also, Toshiba NVME SSD is quite bad in my opinion, without heatsink + active cooling it could reach 79°C, and that's while using in a casing with high airflow
The NVME SSD that I'm using in my SSD comes from my company's HP EliteBook 840 G4, took it out because got free upgrade to Samsung SM951 512GB
Wonder why HP picked the Toshiba NVME SSD to be used in their laptops, imagine the temperatures if it was used inside the laptop doh.gif

maybe it's about cost factor. in general toshiba's nand is not bad.

samsung's z-ssd is finally official now, https://www.anandtech.com/show/12376/samsun...-800gb-of-znand

it's an more affordable alternative for intel's optane ssd. however, optane ssd still outshines this one for workloads that emphasize on random writes. (due to limitations of nand flash technology; the gap between nand flash and 3d xpoint is still a thing)

Hi sifu, I have question to ask about SSD. Currently my PC is only running on SATA 2 (3Gb/s), definitely I won't able to achieve the rated speed for SSD.

Will it benefit to add SSD to my system even-though only on SATA 2?


At the moment, I have a WD Velociraptor 1TB as my main drive.

yes, although the overall speed is throttled by sata2 (typically max at around 250MB/s) you still can enjoy benefits from high iops from ssd.

there is a brand-new ssd optimization guilde for 2018, http://www.thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/opt...imization-2018/ (which include useful tips related to uefi bios)

be sure to read the article thoroughly, and understand that these optimizations are optional. our systems are built and set up differently, so don't apply the ones that can affect your system in a bad way. as always, system stability comes first.

thankyou

True, better get the one from garage sales since both of them don't really offer long term warranty.

right there are warranty risks, unless you can be very sure that seller can fulfill their side of the deal. this is why i think local oem units might be better.

no the write speed for pm951 128gb is this slow.

usually we don't compare speeds with rapid mode turned on. if you wanna run nvme ssds with speeds as rapid mode, use primocache.
