Same story as before, my daughter's machine recently got a huge upgrade thanks to AMD and their Combat Crate. But with her ambition to do graphic design and animation, her standard HDD is slow and annoying to deal with at times. Having access to quick boots and program access would be HUGE for her dreams to get into that world, as well as having bragging rights at her first PDXLAN this fall!

Thanks for reading :D

First, I just wanted to say how cool it is you guys are doing this! I love this community.

But, my story is also the same as Facebook. I’m building my son his first computer, and there’s only a couple components I don’t have for him yet. A hard drive is one of them :) His motherboard can’t use an m.2, but mine can! I’ve never owned one but heard they’re amazing! And then I would just move the hard drive currently in my system to my sons.

I am interested, i have never had any sort of ssd, as they are generally out of my price range. I have always had to use magnetic drives, and the boot up and loading of my system is definitely showing it. So i would use it as a boot drive to help not wait so long for boot.

Thank you for the chance!

Very cool that there are more giveaways.
Pdxlan 32-B was my first lan ever. I had a blast and I went in preparation in bringing more of my family to such a fun event. Sadly due to having a large household and tight budget I need as much help as possible to get them to a lan with me. We only have one working PC in the house. With a SSD it would help me with my project..... I have about 3-5 PCs to build.
I'm building several Fractal itx mods for each kid. I will also take all other donations for these builds too. I just got them into rocket league and they play as much as they can any game I let them. Feel free to PM me if you can lend a hand in anyway.
Any and all donations will be appreciated pictures of my progress and the kids happiness will be in my build thread. May the ssd go to a good home regardless. Thanks again for a great community of gamers.

I am building a current-generation system which could use an M.2. I would use it as the boot drive and pass along my old build components to others who could use them, I already have several friends earmarked :)

Do M.2's really benefit from coolers?

They do help, as-in they do lower the temperatures of the drive a bit, but they are not needed. I have one on my M.2 simply because it looks cool lol
