Just update rig. Was running overclocked haswell(gen 4). Ran great hence I was pushing off upgrading. Let me tell you the 8th gen upgrade was worth it. Just starting to overclock. A few clicks and went from 3.7 to 4.7. Will be going to 5 GHZ if I can get everything stable. Still running 980 GTX OC. Waiting for next NVidia GPU which should be out in a few months... so they say. Anyway the M2 SSD has this thing booting to windows in about 3 seconds. Running G-Skill trident memory. Stock 3600 cas 16. Booted right into that speed without issues. memory can be a PIA.
