u/xAlias · 14 pointsr/buildapcsales

I could be wrong but the link from the OP looks like a referral link.

Anyhow posting a link to the same product via Amazon smile


u/melonbear · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

Terrible deal. Spend $6 less and get a much better drive.

u/some_craic_dealer · 10 pointsr/buildapc

Cheaper and better RAM.

Very slightly Cheaper, bigger and possible better SSD

Cheaper GPU(Although not sure about delivery costs)

I'm sure there are other case that are cheaper but looks are subjective so I wont bother linking any.

Any money saved for the love of god get a better quality PSU. Even if it is something lower end like a Corsair VS or Cooler Master MWE, neither are great supplies but better than any Game Max one I'd bet. Remember the PSU is the corner stone of your build, never ever try and save money on it.

u/Slayer_Blake · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

the patriot scorch is nvme.. it isn't quite a fair fight

but keep in mind that drive is nvme 1.2 ... most are 1.3 now

if you want NVME, this Sabrent Rocket for 60 is MUCH better for an NVME drive for only a few dollars more

u/stumpysharcat · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

For another $7.30, the Sabrent Rocket 512gb is much better.

u/LucidMystery · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

if you have an m.2 slot on your build go for an NVMe drive. the adata drives that are on sale for this deal are SATA, which, although also is the m.2 form factor, are much slower than NVMe and don't take advantage of PCIe lanes that are available in almost all modern motherboards.

for $60 on a 500GB drive, don't get intel 660p, both because of speed and reliability issues. For $60 you can get


which is a great consumer m.2 drive that will be fast enough for 95% of consumer use cases.

u/rallymax · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Swap SSD with Sabrent Rocket 512GB for only $2 more. More speed and no cables to deal with over 2.5" SSD.

u/MC_10 · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

10% off code 10O55JEG also works with:

  • 256GB - $44.99
  • 512GB - $89.99
  • 2TB - $404.99


    Same sale as 13 days ago I believe: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/comments/aje68a/ssd_sabrent_rocket_1tb_2280m2_30x4_nvme_phison/

    Info credit to u/NewMaxx

    > Here are a few things to note: The 256GB, 512GB, and 2TB SKUs are also on sale using this code. The bottom three SKUs have the same $/GB while the 2TB has a premium ($404.99). The product page can be found here. Uses the Phison E12 with Toshiba's 64L 3D TLC NAND, like many other drives: Corsair MP510, MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro, Addlink S70, and Seagate BarraCuda/FireCuda 510. The warranty DOES NOT stand up with other drives in this category, it seems. As high warrantied TBW is a selling point of E12 drives, this is a disappointment; I suggest anyone interested in this drive contact Sabrent for clarification. Due to the previous two points, this drive would mostly fit the "Prosumer & Consumer" workstation category: fast sequentials, quad-core controller for heavier workloads and higher IOPS, basically a budget 970 EVO 11 | 22. I don't necessarily think this is a good deal on any particular SKU/capacity, but it's worth posting so the information is out there for those making decisions. There are a lot of these drives now.
u/ItIsShrek · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

Main differences are controller and memory type. Memory types are SLC, MLC, TLC, and QLC, from most expensive to least expensive. This video explains it pretty decently, but it doesn't mention QLC. It's the same principle, just Quad-level, so one more than TLC. Slightly less reliable but a lot cheaper. If you're doing a budget build it's cheaper and plenty decent for most people, so something like the Intel 660p is a great deal.


If you want something with slightly better performance, longevity, and potential reliability for about the same price, the Sabrent Rocket is fantastic in terms of price/performance. Highly recommend it for most builds. Same controller and memory chips as the Corsair MP510, but a lot cheaper.

u/shredz01 · 4 pointsr/buildapc

Looks good. IF you had not already ordered the video card, I would have recommended getting an 8gb version instead but if you got a good price its ok. Your motherboard has an M.2 slot, so I would get an M.2 drive like this Sabrent Rocket for the same price instead.

u/cyberintel13 · 4 pointsr/buildapc

This is a way better option: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SB-ROCKET-512-Rocket-Internal-Performance/dp/B07KGMBCKD/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=sabrent+rocket+512&qid=1569342867&s=electronics&sr=1-3

Based on Toshiba’s BiCS 3D TLC NAND Flash memory, its read speeds performance speeds can reach up to 3450 MB/s. 512GB for $59

u/figgzz007 · 3 pointsr/GamingLaptops

The HDD is perhaps the best bang for the buck HDD out there in the market. However, the SSD seems a little expensive for what it is. Seagate isn't the best company for SSDs. You can find a Samsung 970 Evo 500GB for $10 less and Samsung currently makes the best SSDs in the market. Other options include the Western Digital Black SN750 which you could easily find for the same price as the 970 Evo. If you want a cheaper alternative without sacrificing day-to-day performance, I would recommend the Intel 660p. It's a QLC SSD where there are 4 bits stored in each cell instead of TLC where there are 3 bits stored in each cell. This gives you lower performance but massively cheaper compared to TLC drives. Both the SN750 and 970 Evo are TLC drives therefore are more expensive than the 660p. This drop in performance is not noticeable at all if all you do is gaming, web browsing and the usual stuffs consumers use their laptops for. The Sabrent Rocket is also a great budget option for an NVMe drive. It's a TLC drive which you could find for as low as $70 for the 512 GB model.





u/howmadstha · 3 pointsr/buildapc

3600X is just 3600 overclocked, which you can do yourself, so not really worth it. I would look into Sabrent Rocket for your NVME (https://www.amazon.fr/Sabrent-interne-Rocket-performance-SB-ROCKET-512/dp/B07KGMBCKD/)

u/Mallninja42069 · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Pretty much same as sabrent rocket. Which is $59.99 regular price.


u/coololly · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Thats a stupidly overpriced SSD. $70 for 250GB! What is this? 2013?



Thats a fantastic SSD using the extremely popular Phison E12 reference design. Its very fast and reliable.

u/PintoTheBurninator · 2 pointsr/buildapc

have you been to pcpartspicker.com?

You can start a build with that CPU and then select compatible parts based on price, reviews, and availability.

I just built a system based on the same CPU and motherboard. Here is the harddrive I used:


and the memory:


and the power supply:


I used an Inwin 301 case but I would not recommend it as the cable management is a little fiddly and the front panel has a giant LED plate that is not RGP controllable and can't be turned off or dimmed.

With your budget, you might look into getting him a 240mm all-in-one water cooler so he can plan with overclocking. Something like this would be sufficient:


u/tl27Rex · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Looks pretty solid man. Could save some money by going to a sabrent rocket ssd with the same storage and same read speeds. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SB-ROCKET-512-Rocket-Internal-Performance/dp/B07KGMBCKD/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=500gb+nvme+ssd&qid=1572218584&sr=8-9

Does have slightly less TBW then the samsung one.

u/TheHonestPolitician · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I don't like that Hitachi 2TB hard drive. Not that there's anything wrong with the drive, but $35 price point and the drive model is almost 7 years old is just odd with me. I wouldn't be surprised if the warranty is already expired and/or you're really getting a reconditioned drive. I would find another 1TB or 2TB elsewhere, maybe a Seagate Barracuda 2TB.

Also, I would opt for a larger NVME SSD, maybe a 512GB. That 120GB will not last long and you'll fill it up with apps and documents very quickly. Probably this Sabrent Rocket 512GB NVME is what I would get instead.

Everything else looks fine to me.

Edit spelling

u/77xak · 2 pointsr/buildapc

The main thing you should understand is that M.2 is just the form factor, and an M.2 drive can be either PCIe/NVMe or SATA. A SATA M.2 drive is no faster than a normal 2.5 inch SSD, it just fits into the different slot.

I would recommend this M.2 NVMe drive to you. It's the same price as the SSD you were looking at, while being much better and faster.


u/Thepumpkindidit · 2 pointsr/buildapc

It's not that complicated. https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/m2-ssds-common-questions

>Team MP32 512 GB M.2-2280

This is keyed for slots 22mm wide, and it's 80mm long. Thats the "normal" size for NVMe M.2 drives. It's commonly known as M.2 2280. This will fit your motherboard.

Regarding the x2/x4 this just means how many PCI-E lanes the drive will utilise for bandwidth. I don't know the specific technical information here but I am assuming as the drive does not reach the bandwidth of 4 PCI-E 3.0 lanes due to it's design, probably to save on costs it's only running off 2 PCI-E lanes.

Compare this to a higher performance NVMe SSD like the 970 Evo Plus which uses 4 lanes.

I suggest you look at the Sabrent Rocket if you want a drive that is higher performance but still relatively cheap.

u/TravonsGhost · 2 pointsr/buildapc
  1. Hard no. Just OC it to those levels, $50 saved.

  2. Yep, 3200 runs really well and is probably the most popular speed people pair it with.

  3. For gaming, not really, but most do. Nobody really uses boot drives these days because you can get a 1tb m2 for $100.

  4. Not with that 1060. But the setup would be good enough to add a newer card to and 1440 would be fine.

  5. Don't get that 970 Evo plus, for less than that you can get a 512gb sabrent rocket which is a better bet.

    Edit: Drop the 3600x for the 3600 and the 970, use the money saved to get a 1tb sabrent rocket.
u/madbr3991 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I would consider this one it's much faster and has more storage for $60

u/OnlyTilt · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

The 500gb 860 evo is approaching high performance nvme prices, you might want to look at drives like the sabrent rocket, adata sx8200, silicon power or similar drive on amazon.

sabrent rocket: https://www.amazon.ca/Sabrent-SB-ROCKET-512-Rocket-Internal-Performance/dp/B07KGMBCKD/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2H0D5TAUP2EK6&keywords=sabrent+rocket&qid=1568915130&s=gateway&sprefix=sabrent+r%2Caps%2C211&sr=8-2.

Also is the build 100% for gaming? if so then everything looks good, if not then go with a AMD R7 3700x and a B450 Tomahawk MAX instead of the intel stuff.

u/thenseruame · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales


Link is just an example, but it's a solid drive. They go on sale occasionally. Doesn't get much more simple than that, no need for the two sata cables. It slides into a slot and is held down by a screw. The 500GB will hold your OS and a fair amount of games for around $100. I have a 250GB I use as a boot drive in one computer. In another I have this (again just for reference. Quite a bit cheaper than the Samsung and also well reviewed.

Then you can always add more drives at a later time if need be. You can link most game clients to different locations for games. So it won't matter for that.

Edit: Someone just posted this 500GB NVME drive for $50. Your board has two NVME slots it looks like. As long as you aren't planning on doing SLI or something crazy you'd have 1TB of storage for $100+ tax. Or do the logical thing and pay the $10 more for the 1TB version.

u/throooooooooool · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

I do like the addition of the cooler approach. I have previously melted graphics cards (don't ask)
I'd be keen to swap out the HDD for a larger M2, I really only need just a boot drive as I have an HDD I can bring over (apologies for not making that clear in the OP.. I have much to learn about this subreddit's ways).
Would you say the Sabrent 512GB from u/IHave47Chromosomes suggestion would work well or is there a better option?

u/sebakjal · 1 pointr/buildapc

What SSD would be similar to the Sabrent Rocket in terms of price and performance?

u/Computerknight54 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Which specific power supply? If it's a higher end one, 3 years is nothing.

Change the SSD for a Sabrent Rocket. You can currently get the 512 GB version for $92 tax free with a coupon https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07KGMBCKD

u/MoChuang · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Lol this is not the best build option but its a bit unique. This Asrock A300 case and board thing is tiny and uses laptop SO-DIMMs. If you want something super small this could be a fun and simple thing to build.

Asrock A300 Case/board/PSU all in one for $150

R3 2200G APU for $80

RAM Crucial DDR4 SO-DIMMS for $40

SSD 500GB Sabrent Rocket NVME for $60

Total: $330

u/pawalec · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

This or the Sabrent Rocket? Going 512gb for either, but they're both $60 + tax https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KGMBCKD?th=1
On paper they seem to be the same but have different controllers? Also would not really mind waiting.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Amd

Looks great. I'd probably get a nvme m.2 instead l though since that WD blue sata m.2 isn't saving any money, but has much lower speeds than nvme

For the same price you can get this Sabrent 512GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive

u/TeslApple_Guy · 1 pointr/computers

You should look for NVMe it’s much faster than sata or m.2. This one is pretty cheap

u/labrat84 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have 2 of the 1tb Sabrent NVME m.2 drives in my 3700x build and am really happy with them. I think I paid around $110 each for them on amazon. here is the 500gb version which is $70 before a $5 coupon.

u/kafyr · 1 pointr/buildapc

yes, gpu is my current one, i will replace it with a 5700xt or 2060 in a couple of months

for storage i'm looking at m2 Sabrent 512GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 (60€). total configuration will cost aroung 580-610€ (it depends on cpu cooler)

u/HesusMendez · 1 pointr/laptops

Looking into a suitable SSD. I'm leaning towards this -


Its M.2 NNMe, good reviews affordable. Just want to make sure this is compatible.


I'm at work, so I can't check what Ram I have, but I think its safe to guess from the Model and its specs that I have a 8GB DDR4 2400 mt/s SODIMM (260-pin?) and looking into also getting this which I think is compatible -



If all this for under £100 can get me another year at of the Laptop, definitely worth it.

u/TheOnlyQueso · 1 pointr/laptopsdeals


Just as good drive for $5 more, but new

u/Crazypally · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yeah. I would suggest looking into a Sabrent Rocket m.2 nvme ssd. They are much lower cost without sacrificing much speed. I'll edit this comment in a few minutes with a link for you.

Edit: I would go at least 512gb. 60usd.

u/SgtKibbles · 1 pointr/buildapc

I would switch out the Samsung 860 Evo for the Sabrent Rocket 512 GB it's not only cheaper but it's faster than any SATA SSD. Take a look at the MSI Gaming X 2060 Super, it's $430 at B&H and should be much better than reference. Though if the choice for reference was aesthetic I won't stop you.

Waiting for a good 5700xt to be back down near MSRP (such as the Pulse at $409, Gigabyte Gaming OC at $419 or the Nitro+/Red Devil at $439) would get you better performance if you won't miss the RTX features like new NVENC encoder (though really if you're using GPU stream encoding you should get a 3600 instead of a 2700x) and ray tracing. Drivers being buggy seems hit or miss.

I would also consider some Crucial Ballistix 3200 mhz kits that have a model number ending in AES. Such as this one as it means you can guarantee getting memory chips that tend to clock better/more consistently (Micron Rev. E). I'm not entirely sure what chips G. Skill is using for that kit.

u/kpqvz2 · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Why a SATA SSD? You can go with a much faster NVMe one for about the same price.

u/tbone338 · 1 pointr/applehelp

I would recommend getting an nvme drive with an nvme enclosure. I personally have a sabrent rocket nvme drive with a sabrent nvme enclosure. Comes out to be $100

u/hi_im_12_btw · 1 pointr/buildapc

I agree with etnguyen03, you should invest into an nvme m.2 ssd as they are easier to install and are also faster than regular sata ssds. Also check this out, you might be interested in a 2070 for 366$ right now on Amazon.

u/rollem78 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I don’t know what others’ experience is with the Sabrent rocket, but it’s so fast. I don’t know why anyone buys another NVME. I have the 1TB, so the write speed is faster than the 512mb, but even that is faster than the Intel.

Did you need a LAN case with that particular shape? There are very good cases that could save you some money. For example, Fractal Focus G https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=Fractal+focus+g

u/kurowuro · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Honestly, I've never used them, and the only experience I have is through my friend. If you're not comfortable using it then I wouldn't risk it. It was just a suggestion.


This is the NVME drive. They have 1tb at $100, 512 at $59, and 256 $39. Looks like they also have a 2tb. My last build had a 256, and the guy who I sold it to eventually upgraded, but if you're already planning on using an SSD then you should be fine with the 256 only holding your OS. I believe boot times would be under 15 seconds, but I'm not 100% certain.

u/duduqaz · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yeah is very easy to find good NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 at better prices than SATA (60$), like THIS one or THIS, or even the CRUCIAL P1 (wish i think is worse than the other two, but is a better known brand).

Thanks for the replies.

u/Candyinsight · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thank you so much! This was so helpful!
So for the ssd, is this one good? I'mm sorry, I'm extremely inexperienced, I know nothing about what the letters you typed mean I just tried to find something cheap with good reviews that matched! Also should I get the SSD along with the hybrid, an ssd with an HDD, or just the ssd?

u/ryguy867 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Looks good, the only thing I’d change is using a nvme drive instead of the Samsung evo because nvme drives run at way faster speeds than sata ones. This one will give you over 6 times faster read speeds and about 4 times faster write speeds for $20 dollars less. Samsung ssd’s are really overpriced.

u/5_DOLLAR_DIARRHEA · 1 pointr/buildapc

You can get a Sabrent 512GB NVME for $50 from amazon https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SB-ROCKET-512-Rocket-Internal-Performance/dp/B07KGMBCKD/ saves you about $15 from the WD you picked and no rebate hassle.

u/xandarg · 1 pointr/buildapc

The MX 500 is one of the more popular SATA SSDs. I can definitely recommend that one. If your mobo has an M.2 slot, then you might consider one of these much faster SSDs for similar price.

Oh god, I just tried to find them on Australian sites... You poor bastards...

Well, I guess read this review of the BX 500. It doesn't seem like a bad choice, if that's your budget.
