My new Corsair M.2. I'm just trying to get the kinks out of the system but I have to say that this is a huge improvement over my old drives, lol.

Yes. I probably should have given the specs in the first place. Corsair MP600 NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4.

Woa, those are some speeds!

My Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD (OS)

My Intel 665p 1TB NVMe SSD (storage)

I'm still trying to get use to how fast it boots to Windows. I no longer have to turn it on and then go get a cup of coffee. I can be in Windows in around 5-7 seconds. It's kind of funny because I will now sit in front of the computer and turn it on, get distracted for a couple of seconds looking for something on my desk and then realize "Oh, it's ready for my password".

Also, those speeds I'm getting are higher than the rated ones.

So... I got to the point of moving about 180 gig of pictures and music from my C: to the 2nd drive in the system, a Corsair MX500. Not only is the SSD fast, the transfer of all that data was almost pegging the SSD at it's MAX rating. Below is a shot of the Cyrstal Disk report for the SSD


Sorry if I'm blabbering too much about how fast this new build is but it's just blowing me away.
