Just found out there is a BIOS update to support NVME on my ASRock Z77 Extreme4 board with a passive adapter and my still ticking 3570k. Time to give it a try.

My DDR3-1600 RAM will be the biggest bottle neck in my system. I'll tackle CPU/MB/RAM another time.

Nice! I recently upgraded from that exact combo to a 3700x and ASRock pro4 x570. I still have the 3570 and z77 e4 sitting in a static bag assembled. Was planning on using it as a streaming PC so I might just get 2 of these and try this out. Good lookin out.

Please donate your Z77 to me after you upgrade Smilie I'm keeping my 3570k for another 10 years; only annoyances in my system are no USB3.0 and no built-in wireless card. I bought the cheapest motherboard possible.

Isn't QLC like the worst kind of flash you can get for the average user (high read write usage)? Honest question, just curious, seems like a good deal.

Technically yes, however for the average user, I don't think they would notice the difference.

You have it backward. It's the best for the average user, as it is good bang for buck.
Average users do not have high usage of their drives and rarely strain it.

You might not be an average user but think you are - I don't think any average people would even be on slickdeals imo. above average at minimum.

I do enjoy the cheap price for my more regular PC people. Smilie

Depends on the use case. The average user just wants something that installs and loads their OS, programs and games fast. QLC is more than enough for that. Every time they add to the bit length per cell, people always freak out at first. You could look at posts from 2010 when people were debating MLC to SLC. "Why would anyone want MLC? Sure it's twice the storage but it's lower performance and endurance!"

As technology advances (better controllers and DSP, wear algorithms, higher capacity), the downsides to using a higher bit level are mitigated.

If you are doing work with heavy IO work then you would want a higher performing drive.

I just got a Dell XPS 15 7590 and want to put a bigger drive in it. Should I jump on this or wait for something like a Samsung 970? My budget is up to $170, and value reliability above all else.
