Can these be used for like gaming drives or? do I need drivers for it? Sorry I'm new to these type of SSD's.Here is a link to purchase a new one::
I bought one of your $199 linked ones for a game drive on windows 10.I know nothing about either seller... But it have the difference between that and this one for $199?
Again, no affiliation, just saw it slightly cheaper. Please keep us updated! 3.2TB SSD for $200 is a good price if you don't need to boot from it.I bought one of your $199 linked ones for a game drive on windows 10.
Cant touch the price with new consumer stuff, and I’ve been looking for a ~4TB SSD. This will do nicely and cheaper....still plenty fast

some more information in this thread
Should be fine to run on your X58 motherboard. The thread I linked above has one guy that says it works with Windows 7, so you can assume Win 8 too, and for sure people in the thread used Win 10.My MB is a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (Ver.1), and I'm running a Xeon W3680 processor. I think my PCIe slots are 2.0.
Unsure precisely on benchmarks. It should have no problem at all co-existing with your sata disks.Can I expect speeds like the ones you posted? How will they react with a Sata III boot drive? Thanks
Its a dice roll. Ill give you one sample data point in a few days when mine arrives - which will be as randomly inconsequential as the rest of the pulls.I'd really be wary then cuz these things date back to 2013, and if they've been used that long in an enterprise... how much life is left?
