970 EVO Plus NVMe® M.2 SSD 1TB

Today I am here to share the 970 EVO Plus NVMe® M.2 SSD 1TB SSD with you and I bought it to use in a gaming setup and it works really nice. The SSD is fast enough for me to do anything I need to and the computer loads right up. This low-profile SSD will fit in any motherboard with a m.2 slot. The Samsung SSD is only $139.99 on the Samsung website. I am also able to load into farming simulator really fast not like my old SSD that took up to 2 minutes to load the gaming software.

Specifications:

  • Size- 1TB
  • Read-3,500MB/s Seq transfer rate
  • Write speed-3,300MB/s Seq transfer rate
  • Total rights/MTBF, how long will it last- 1.5 million hours
  • Warranty- 5 year
  • IOPS- 400,000
  • V-Nand
  • Price per GB- 14 cents per GB
  • Form factor 2280
  • 600 TBW

I am very happy with this SSD and would suggest it to anyone who is looking to build a computer or upgrade from their old Hard drive. This SSD is customizable for different amounts of storage and that would change the price if this one is too expensive for you.

Crucial 8GB DDR4-3200 UDIMM

I have liked the Crucial 8GB DDR4-3200 UDIMM RAM for my home PC build. I have had no problems with it so far and if I were to have a problem they guarantee a Life Time Warranty. I am on a budget because I don’t want to spend all of my money but I really wanted to play Farming Simulator 22. Since I purchased this ram I have played the Farming simulator for 9 hours and it is running smooth and I just keep farming. 

The RAM does not look the coolest but is cheap enough to be within my budget and is $19.99 on the crucial website.

Intel was able to create the LGA 1700 socket and with that, I was able to purchase the Intel Core i5-12600k. This CPU has been awesome and worth every penny. I was able to find it on amazon for $166.00.  This is a 12 generation CPU and has many specifications that make it a Great valued gaming CPU.

ASRock Z690 Pro Motherboard Review

The Z690 Pro  Intel Motherboard is produced by ASRock and it is awesome. This motherboard is $119.99 on NewEgg and is well worth the price.  The motherboard looks amazing in a black and grey colorway, with a splash of blue and purple glowing lights. When I saw this motherboard it just stood out from the others and when I looked at the specifications I was blown away.

This Motherboard uses Intel’s 1700 CPU socket and can support the newest CPUs from a 12th-generation CPU to a 14th-generation CPU. The Motherboard looks great in my white PC case. The different contrast in colors makes it stand out.

The Motherboard comes with many functions to help you advance. The motherboard is good how it is or you can add different graphics to make your PC more of a gamer or a really nice home or work motherboard. Since I bought this motherboard I have been very happy with it. It allows me to do everything I need to. I can stick up to 4 sticks of ram into this motherboard adding up to the Max of 128GB.

This Motherboard Has good reviews from people who have bought it. This Motherboard comes with integrated components which allows you to get started faster on your build to using your computer. Instead of waiting to use your motherboard till you have bought a graphics card, you could get this motherboard that comes with onboard graphics.

This Motherboard has 6 of USBs for your accessories that you will plug into your PC. you will have 7.1 channels of freaking audio to give you the ability to use whatever sound system that you desire.
