Description

Going to be mainly using this setup for gaming and light workstation assignments. It works very well with almost all games that I have installed on it (60+ FPS). Definitely a huge upgrade from my 5 year old gaming laptop with an I-7 4700 MQ and GTX 770M. Thinking of adding an SLI after a year or so.

Runs really good. Compared to my other SSD and HDD this thing loads up games like nothing. For example when I play XCOM 2 with a traditional HDD it takes awhile for it to load even if it is new and such (search it up and you'll see that people complain about them). With this I can load up a mission without being able to read the briefing cause it loads it up in 1-3 seconds. Overall I think it was a good choice especially for gaming. Just make sure you have a good airflow in your case cause it does get a bit hot especially if its near your GPU.

I just wondered which is better? Mount the NX500 above or below the GPU?

I'm looking to use the same thing for gaming but debating if I should.

It’s best to put it below the GPU. Mainly because the higher the graphics cards are on the slots the more lanes they can use. Check your motherboards manual to see which PCIe slot has the most and put your GPU there. More lanes means more bandwidth for your GPU. As for the NX500 you can just put it about anywhere else. Correct me if I’m wrong but PCIe lanes don’t really matter for the NX500 from what I’ve experienced. Basically GPUs should have the priority for PCIe.
