NUC8i7HVK - Critical Performance Boost

For owners of and anyone considering purchasing a NUC8i7HVK, I can confirm that the HyperX 16GB 3200 MHz memory modules together with the Samsung 970 Pro SSDs have made a significant improvement in overall boot times, load times for large and small files, and general snappiness (response).

 

I know it's the bleeding edge and expensive but if you can swing it, a difference it makes for sure!

 

The prices:

  • Samsung 970 PRO 512GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD - $149.99
  • Samsung 970 PRO 1TB - NVMe PCIe M.2. 2280 SSD - $299.99
  • Kingston HyperX 32GB 3200 MHZ DDR4 (Kit of 2) - $220.45

 

$670 for the upgrade

 

SSU attached.

Yes, I added a 970 Pro 512gb to my Hades Canyon, and the boot speed is quite amazing.
