Allyn - Would M.2 temperature be a problem when it's sitting under a hot running video card? (radiant and convective heat heading down towards the motherboard that the M.2 is sitting on?). Playing a game for a while, and then loading a level or something like that..?

For that Serious Sam VR testing with Dual RX 480's, please do some Dual RX 470 testing with some Price/Performance metrics comparsions between Dual RX 480 and dual RX 470 configurations. The RX 470 prices are falling more than the RX 480 pricing currently so there may be some Dual RX 470 testing that can get close to the dual RX 480 performance at even better savings for dual GPU gaming/VR Gaming.

Hey Allyn,

For those people who don't have Photoshop, Microsoft has the Image Compositor Editor. It stitches together multiple photos and is FREE! I have used it and it is great if you want to make Panoramas.

@Allyn - I'm curious about the difference between these M.2 drives and normal SSD's in real world scenario's. What would upgrading from an 850 EVO to this new 960 drive accomplish? I use my PC (I7 6700K, 16GB, GTX1080) mostly for general browsing and gaming (also got an HTC Vive). I do nothing like encoding, video/photo editing or whatever. As impressive as those number look it still seems like an incremental improvement for my daily needs. Nothing like going from a traditional HD to my first SSD (that was epic!). I'm actually very curious about the Intel X-point technology. Seems like that will be another big step. What do you think?

BE SMART AND BECOME RICH IN LESS THAN 3DAYS....It all depends on how fast
you can be to get the new PROGRAMMED blank ATM card that is capable of
hacking into any ATM machine,anywhere in the world. I got to know about
this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month
ago..It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and
I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about
$50,000.(fifty thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money
into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught
,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it
also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect
you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on : (
atmmachinehackers1@gmail.com ). Tell your
loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how
my life changed for good...Love you all ...the email address again is ;
