I bought this M.2 SSD to go in my New X99 system. The X99 motherboard allows me to boot off the XP941 and after running some Disk speed test i get an average of 1092 mb/s transfer rate.

The Drive is very very quick.....

Perfect for a boot drive

PCIe x4 is meant to nearly double the speed of SATA which seems to put limit to SSD speed. And this item (as far as I know) is the only M.2 PCIe x4 available to consumers. I know the true speed of PCIe x4 is not really realised by this as it still uses AHCI rather than NVMe (or thats what I read!) but its still very very fast. I can get to WIn7 log-on screen from boot in 5 or second.

But I am very worried about the temperature it gets up to. I have seen a youtube clip where ran test and the temperature of this went up to 113 degrees! I do not have temperature sensor for XP941 but the surrounding gets very hot! I will invest in some thermal gap fillers to help keep the temperature low as possible. I think it is best to avoid installing programs that uses file systems a lot like a game as this will increase the temperature of the drive and probably reduce its life expectancy.

If you are a patient type, maybe, its better to wait a bit to see what other competitors bring out (or what Samsung brings out) before investing in this. Price is quite high too since its quite new tech I guess, although the components it uses are pretty much same as other SSDs.
