General question about Samsung M.2 drives for those who might have information about the difference between the 970 EVO (MLC NAND) and 970 EVO+ (V-NAND). Is it the speed, reliability, lifetime, or...?  Thanks!

 

I have an i9-9900KS arriving early next week.  I’ll be using the ROG RTX2080 that’s in my current build.  I’ll be hitting the closest Micro Center to fill out my parts list soon.

970 Evo:

"The new generation of 3D NAND upgrades the interface between the controller and NAND to Toggle-mode DDR 4.0, increasing the interface speed from 800Mbps to 1400Mbps while reducing the voltage from 1.8V to 1.2V."

Hi VHS,

On the MSI MB, is that the clock socket next to the 's' of the MSI branding? If not can you share a some more detail about clock wiring. Do you solder the signal to the MB soldering point and then ground elsewhere? As wiring both of them to the tiny point is very hard.

Thanks

 

 

I had it replaced by a local shop in Hong Kong.

 

The original clock underneath the heat sink of chipset was replaced by using two silver wires connected to the new OXCO PCB board. See the pics.clock1.thumb.jpg.11b4167b7ef33dad52ee6a8206c543ed.jpg

What are the two silver wires connected to for power?  What kind of connector is used?

 

EDIT:  Is the PCB purchased separately?  Do you happen to know the manufacturer and model number?

Two silver wires are only for clock signal and there are no connectors.

 

I had the clock replaced by a local shop in Hong Kong and can ask whether he can sell the PCB separately.

Taiko chassis

The drawings are nearly ready. I will have drawings/price to share very soon. That would be a one-time (for now) small batch order. I will try to get a count of how many people are willing to buy one. Make sure you get back to me when I post this. Taiko will order a few extra chassis but not a lot more.

My understanding is that Taiko will sell those at cost, with no profit. And I don’t expect them to keep hundreds of them in stock. It will be important to get an accurate count, so people don’t get left off.

Keep in mind that it takes about 2 months after the order is placed. Try to be patient. I am practicing my audiophile patience too :).

Hi Nenon,

 

Looking forward to it...

I have high hopes that I will be able to share some drawings or 'renders' of the DIY chassis with everyone on this forum tomorrow when I'm back at the office.

Thx Jay
