PCI Express 4 NVMe Drive Roundup

Temperatures

If you put the drives in heatsink size order like the famous Tower of Hanoi game then it would look like this graph. Bigger heatsinks lead to lower temperatures. Not exactly a result which will hit the front pages, even if the "no heatspreader at all" Seagate FireCuda 520 is well inside thermal limits.

Taking off the heatsinks and leaving the temperature management solely to the motherboard heatspreader/heatsink brings a whole different set of results. What is perhaps most surprising is how effective a motherboard heatspreader is. Given that all these drives are double sided then perhaps the big surface area of the motherboard cooling is doing a better job than the supplied heatsinks which, let's not kid ourselves, have some aesthetic considerations.

It's so nice to see Patriot back. IDK where they went for so long, but their new range (RAM etc) is cheap yet very pretty.

Cheers Guv, I shall watch the vid later in bed Quote

That Corsair box just won't give up. Could you lower the volume for OC3D intro Tom? It is deafening in most of your videos.Quote

Why is no one addressing the actual performance of NVME drives? It doesn't matter that it can do 5000 MB a second sequential. Sequential doesn't matter at all. The most important things are IOPS, Low Queue Depth, sustained write and 4K performance. 970 Pro and especially 905p although on paper "slower" and PCIe Gen. 3 are demolishing these drives in pretty much every task.Quote

Tom.

The blue Patriot. Does it have chips on it that say Phison per chance?

I bought two Pioneer drives and they're actually Phison which are blue.

Chances are Patriot are buying them like that.Quote
