I don't know much about it lol.

Really I am trading it out because I like that it is black. It is the only drive I would consider trading out for my Intel 750 and it should be a pretty near equal trade after I sell my 750. I am getting it Tuesday I believe.
That's a good trade, its a full 480 Gig, the drive actually has around 560 gigs I think, the extra is for provisioning!

Re: Z370 compaired to X299 Builds!

See I didn't even know that. Pretty much Friday I accidentally discovered it was in stock and proceeded to buy it before it was sold out. The only thing I had to think about was cost and if it would ever sell for less and the answer is not with Intel, it will stick at retail. I did get a good discount on V-day though.

Yes you are right about the price never going down with a Intel Drive...you did good on that price....and from all that I've read about the 900P the only negative is price!
