from completed build Get Better Gaming Rig

Fast HDDs are sort of outdated with the advent of SSDs. These are fun to have for the cool factor and do perform better than any other HDD I've ever owned. They're fairly loud and distracting.

This is a great disk which has served its purpose for years. Very quiet (unless you're putting a big load on it) and of course fast. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is slowly coming outdated and I anticipate all SSDs in this build eventually. But for now, this is the disk where I have all my media, so I need to re-use it.

Originally bought this about a year ago as a fast solution for video recording. Works really well to this day, looks cool as well with the heatsink.
