PNY CS2030 480GB Internal Solid State Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you aren't careful it will fry eggs I have installed this PCI-E SSD drive in a Antec 300 V2 case. I have two 120mm fans in the front, 140mm fan in the top, 120mm fan in the back, and a 120mm fan in the door. This drive idles with temps in the 40C to 50C range. At full load it reaches temps as high as 75C. Without the fan on the door I have seen the temps under load hit in the 80c's. The PCI-E SSD drive has chips on both sides so it was not possible to add an after market heat sink to the drive since you would only cool one side. The drive has a 3 year warranty, but if you do not have some external means to improve airflow over the drive my guess is that it will fail within the 3 years. If it doesn't fail you will certainly shorten it's life. Now that I have covered the bad here is the good. The drive was very easy to install and it performs like a champ. It is almost on par with the Samsung 960 drive. The published read speed is in the 2800 range and I am seeing speeds of 2750 using crystal mark bench-marking program. I am using the drive as my main boot drive and it contains Windows 10 Home along with most of my programs. It is so fast that Windows is up and running in the blink of an eye. I do not use a password on my welcome screen so if I blink my machine is sitting on my desktop waiting for me to select something almost immediately. Other than the heat issue I am extremely satisfied with the drive and would recommend it to anyone. I did not buy the product from this store but I thought I would share my experiences with the drive.
