So I have a MSI X99A MB https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/X99A-SLI-PLUS/Specification and I'm wondering which one of these will be better as a system drive ?
nvme1.4 with PCI4 can be run in nvme1.3 with PCI3 motherboard without problems, right ?
Seems like the Gammix is better at everything ... only difference seems to be TLC vs SLC

Your mobo supports pcie gen3.
I would not pay extra for a gen 4 ssd.
Shop for a gen3 ssd read the reviews.

Adata drives have a bad reputation, you might be best choosing the 3rd option, something else.

I don't have any suggestions, I use Samsung myself but they might cost more.
Whi is that not mentioned anywhere including Tomshardware review ?

The people who right the reviews aren't the ones who answer all the questions on the forums. I don't know how involved they are here, I haven't got anything to do with them as they are staff and I am just a user (Mods aren't paid staff). So opinions may vary, one mod here has used the drives before and they were the only ones to fail, I also see other people with similar problems (Example) so I try to warn people before they buy.

Do not hesitate to browse your local craigslist sites. Very possible that someone sell exactly what you want. I got my system drive (Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1 TB NVMe) for 130€ exactly in this way. Proof.
A fellow latvian? What are the chances ... buying from SS that means no warranty ..
