Those Intel drives I bought in 2014 and I happened to catch them on sale. One is a 240GB and the other is a 480GB, but they are really fast even by today's standards for a SATA SSD (It butts right up to the SATA III bandwidth limit) and super durable.
Ah ok, I for some reason thought they were the NVMe non SATA ones. I'm researching M.2 NVMe PCIe drives and the Western Digital Black SSDs NVMe drives have some amazing read/write speeds. The Intel Optane ones are highly rated too and thought those might be them.

Yeah I have a couple of M.2 drives as well. And another 2TB Samsung SSD mounted behind the motherboard tray.

Love Jim Browning, been watching his videos for a few years. That particular series of videos he did were amazing and the BBC made a documentary on these scammers that eventually led to some arrests for those scam artists. Though if you watch his other videos you can see how easy these setups are to restart and obfuscate their locations, Jim does some amazing work to infiltrate and try to save as many people as possible from their scams.

It's kinda amazing that these scammers make bank which is why they keep doing it, one of them he showed was making $3 million USD per month! that's USD!

Great videos.

I don't know a lot about the optanes, but I believe they only show benefit when using them in conjunction with hdds.  Just so you don't waste your money :).
