    Re: M.2 (NGFF) SSD Advice

    Thanks to both of you for the quick response. From what I've read cards with a single slot are PcIe, yet the Transcend is Sata. My Rog adapter comes with a single slot so I assumed it would only take...

    Re: M.2 (NGFF) SSD Advice

    My problem seems to be finding a PcIe SSD type 2260, which I'm assuming is faster than the SATA SSD. Plenty of type 2280 and plenty of SATA SSD type 2260 but not the one I'm looking for. I'll try...

    Re: First watercooled build (in bits)

    Thanks, good idea.

    Re: Maximus VII Formula Memory

    I took your advice on the Swiftech H240-X so I think I'll do the same with the ram. I fancy upgrading my sound card to the Asus Essence STX II. The ram can wait. Thanks once again for your help.
