Synopsis: Jeffrey Edson at Overclock.net uses a combination of MyDigitalSSD solid state drives to get more from his latest PC build using 8th Generation Intel technology.

In his latest Overclock.net guide, Industry Ambassador Jeffrey Edson details building and overclocking a high-end PC for gaming and editing using an 8th Generation Intel 8700K CPU with a Z370 chipset - something Edson expects to be a "respectable" overclock for builders of all experience levels.

For this build, Jeffrey chose three 480GB MyDigitalSSD solid state drives, including one BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe SSD and two BP5e Slim 7 Series SATA III 2.5" SSDs set to RAID 0.

Why choose MyDigitalSSD?

"You can get excellent performing SSDs for a lot less money." he says, later adding, "They are another company that is always there for me when I need them. I have been working closely with these guys to solve some issues when Ryzen launched and they really value their customer's feedback."

RAID 0 for Added Performance

First discussing the BP5e Slim 7 Series, Edson first notes that the drive "offers excellent Read/Write performance" telling readers to expect read speeds up to 565MB/s and writes up to 524MB/s. He also goes on to say, "The drive offers the PHISON S10 controller, low power consumption, and Toshiba TLC Flash. Whats outstanding here is a 480GB SSD with Toshiba Flash and a PHISON controller for under $200.00."

When expanding on his plans for using the drives in RAID 0, Jeffrey says, "Having 2x these drives in RAID 0 will definitely add an extra layer of performance next to the main NVMe drive." and then says, "I will be installing the Operating System to the NVMe SSD and all my extra games and programs to the RAID 0 array."

NVMe Storage

Calling the NVMe protocol the "performance standard for drive storage", the BPX offers great value to builders as Edson again mentions, "you can expect an excellent performing drive for less with the MyDigital brand."

Jeffrey notes that MyDigitalSSD BPX NVMe drives feature the Phison E7 controller and PCIe 3.0 x4 for greater performance, saying, "NVMe is offering major improvements by eliminating legacy AHCI commands in replacement of the PCIe interface. This offers huge gains in speeds of GB/s rather than MB/s."

Going on to say that SSD’s offer noticeable improvements right away, Edson says "You can expect great performance during heavy workloads with the BPX line of SSDs."

In Conclusion

Wrapping up the discussion on the build in it’s entirely Jeffrey Edson says, "Having the opportunity to build a system like this is a lot of fun. It takes some patience but is totally worth the time and money. I hope this guide at least helps some people and even encourages some new PC builds."
