Intel Solid State Drives (SSD)

Solid State Drives (SSDs) are used to store data on your computer and are available in a variety of form-factors. SATA-based SSDs are great for value-conscious users, while PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 drives will give you the ultimate performance! Regardless of which type you choose, all offer the benefits that most HDDs cannot: faster speeds and durability with less noise.

Mwave can help you improve the performance of your computer with our range of SSDs. We stock all types of SSDs that you may need. Regardless of the SSD, all types of SSDs are faster than HDDs. Along with being faster than HDDs, SSDs also offer the benefits of being quieter, more compact, durable and reliable. Mwave offers a range of SSDs, from entry level SATA based SSDs up to high-end ultra-fast PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs.

 

What SSD do I need?

If you are value conscious a SATA based SSD will work best for you and they are available in both M.2 and 2.5” form factors such as the Crucial MX500 (2.5”/M.2). Those who want the fastest experience will want to buy a PCIe4.0 NVMe based SSD which offers the highest speeds though cost more than SATA SSDs. Note that PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs will still operate in most PCIe 3.0 M.2 slots, albeit at slower speeds. 

 

Do I need a heatsink for my M.2 SSD?

If you have slower, relatively lower capacity NVMe M.2 SSD or even a SATA-based M.2 SSD, it is unlikely that a heatsink will be necessary assuming there is decent airflow. High-performance, high-capacity PCIe 3.0 and PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs may require a heatsink to reduce the chance of thermal throttling due to overheating. Many mid to high-end motherboards and some high-end NVMe M.2 SSDs already have M.2 heatsinks onboard meaning that no extra financial outlay is required. If you require a heatsink, our range of M.2 heatsinks can be found here.

 

Do I need to only run SSDs or can I run a combination of SSD + HDD?

If you are price sensitive or require a large storage capacity, then it may be worthwhile considering a dual drive option. A dual drive setup normally uses a low/medium capacity SSD as a boot device for your operating system (along with a couple of programs) and a high capacity HDD for files such as documents, music and videos. An example would be using a 500GB SSD as a boot drive for Windows and for commonly used programs + a 4TB HDD for file storage and lesser used programs.
