    Intel 750 vs Samsung 950

    Any opinions as to which drive is preferred? Both seem to be well matched in terms of performance.

    Boot times are alot slower with the Intel drive. I got tired of it after a while and got the 950 instead.

    I'm just a bit put off by the heat with the Samsung drive, but I was thinking of using that Angelbird heat sink with it. That would solve the heat problem, but wouldn't that still cause slow boot times in a PCIe slot instead of the M.2 slot?

    With my Intel 750, my total boot time to Windows login is about 33 seconds on pre-3000 bios, 40 seconds on 3101. That's on a cold boot, restart seems to take about half the time. Slow for an SSD, but not horribly so, and I never have any temp issues with it. Just figured I'd supply some numbers instead of a vague "slow".

    Yea. I'm wondering if the Samsung drive will still behave the same since it will be in a PCIE slot.

    There is no speed decrease using the Angelbird adapter. I plan on using one myself when I get the 950 Pro. Waiting on the new Rampage V board before I order though.

    Wonder why the Intel drives are so slow on boot then compared to Samsung's 950 while connected to a PCIe slot?

    Something about initialization and error correcting for server platform use, as the Intel 750 is designed for both. I'll post the link where I asked about this on Intel forums when I get home in a few hours.
