Yes i use my main SSd to install games that i play often and other games i used the other SSD. I was installing BF2 today on my WD m.2 and the lag occurred. I was installing lego star wars on the WD a awhile back it happened as well. I completely installed windows and went to steam to install and the lag happened.
Great post man, didn't know how to reply right away LooL, needed some time to digest. I do have a Stock cooler for my 2700. Would you recommend on OC, or perhaps upgrading to a Ryzen 7 5800x? I do plan to watercool in the future, just not right now.
Those Gen 4 SSDs are dumb with the kind of cooling they need: active cooling, and location is important - installing it in the slot just above the gpu is like the worst place for it, if you put it there.
I watched a MP600 cooling test from Kitguru yesterday. It was a review for the custom liquid model, but the air cooled models were also included in their test.
I just installed HWIN to detect temps on my m.2 and while installing a game the MP is at 36C, WD at 40C (seems to be staying there as normal temps were 38C but this makes sense as it's being used). However, now im not expericing any slugish so it's doubtful that it's the m.2, correct?
