Samsung SSD M.2 Hard Drive PM981a NVMe

Recently, I got this hard drive and installed it into my motherboard. So far I have had no problems with it at all. The price of the Hard Drive is only $182.13 according to Newegg. If you really think about it, that is a great deal for 1 terabyte of storage. After I installed it into my motherboard, I noticed a change that was much better than the last SSD hard drive that I recently had installed in my motherboard.Specifications:

  • Size 2280 GB
  • transfer rate 2900 MB
  • MTBF 1.5 million
  • Compacity 1 TB
  • Warranty 5 year
  • Read speed 3500 MBps
  • Write speed 2900 MBps



CORSAIR Vengeance LPX Memory Review

VENGEANCE® LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Memory Kit - BlackI recently purchased the CORSAIR Vengeance LPX with 16GB DIMM Memory Module (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16) for my motherboard I use for gaming.  The motherboard I use for gaming is the A320M-K AMD Ryzen, it only takes DDR4 RAM.  I got it because it was fast, a cheap price, and I wanted 16GB or more of RAM. After making my purchase and putting the ram in the motherboard, I realized that this definitely wasn’t the best RAM that I could’ve came up with. The recommended GB for gaming usage is 32GB and I went under the recommendation, which caused my PC to be a little slow. Personally, if you’re going for gaming, I do not recommend this choice of RAM.

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Review

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is by far one of the best deals I have gotten for a fast CPU that is fast and will not let any occasion down. In the time that I’ve had this CPU, I have had absolutely no problems with it and it runs almost anything that you can put your mind to, which is probably why it got such a good score on Passmark, with a score of 39010, and a Single Thread Rating of 2710. 

This CPU is also priced very well, at $579.99. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 threads, which allows this CPU to do much more than your average PC. On Newegg, this CPU got a whole 5 out of 5 stars, coming from 187 different ratings.

This CPU also takes an AM4 socket. This socket is decent but it is even better when the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is connected to it, giving the CPU a base speed of 3.5GHZ and a max speed of 4.7GHZ. One thing I do recommend though, is a newer type of RAM to give it an even better performance.
