Hello,

I finally decided to replace my current workstation with a Precision 7560. It's due to arrive sometime in February.

Since I could only order it with a 500Gb SSD, I was wondering what's considered a reliable 2Tb option nowadays?

I had great experience with hundreds of Crucial 2.5" MX SSDs but I'm willing to see what you, as owners, have installed in your workstations.

Thank you.

I have probably six or seven Samsung SSDs and those have worked great for me.  If I was buying a 2TB SSD I would probably look at Samsung 980 Pro for top speed, or Samsung 970 EVO Plus if you want something a bit cheaper.

I just picked up a 2TB 980 Pro as well, going to replace the 1TB 980 Pro I have in slot three of my 7760. I removed it from the v4 slot because it was running rather hot, but am going to try again with this new drive.

Was it heating up with a heatsink installed or just the bare drive?

Precision 7X60 is kind of weird here I think.

The PCIe4 slot has a plain metal plate heatsink and nowhere really for the heat to go.  The heatsink would at best serve to "spread the heat out" a bit.

The multiple PCIe3 slots each also have metal plate heatsinks, but they also have thermal pads on top which come into contact with the chassis so at least the heat can go there.

Since you would expect the PCIe4 drive to run the hottest of the bunch, definitely a curious design choice.  I wonder if it was because of the "SSD access door" which is specifically for that slot.  (My 7560 does not have the access door, but it still did not come with thermal pads on the heatsink there.)

@ccvortex "In all honesty, I would stick with Samsung."

I have had several issues with Samsung SSD's, one of them including Health going down quickly, which is Why i only use WD Blacks, WD Blues, Sandisk X400. Below is a Sandisk X400 vs the Samsung OEM SSD.

I've been using Samsung SSDs since their invention basically and have never had a single drive failure.  Not a Samsung fanboy by any means, just like to use what I've had the best experience with.  I was huge Crucial fan but had some issues a few years ago so switched over to Samsung.  Not trying to persuade you of course, just giving my $0.02's worth  😉

A Heatsink is always a must specially on PCI-E 4.0 NVME drives, just remember to make sure you split the thermal pad and make adjustments as the Controller and NAND are of different heights and you will always have issue with contact if you don't.

Just commenting on the "health status" which is pretty prominent in these screen shots.  Here, the Samsung drive has the most writes (nearly 50 TB) and it is on the small side (just 256 GB) so you would expect it to have the lowest "health status" percentage of the bunch.  The TBW rating for a 256 GB Samsung drive (TLC) is just 150 TB.  (For a 2 TB drive it is 1200 TB.)

[Edit] When I posted this there were four drive screen shots but it looks like it has been edited down to two.

I respect your point of view, i had several drives from Samsung simply fail for no reason, if it wasn't for the Backup bible i would of lost a lot of data. Hence i moved to WD/Sandisk, i am simply showing some options too. hence i am giving my $0.01 worth.

There is no "heatsink" per se, just a metal cover.  I do have some really thin thermal tape, I'll probably try to get that in-between there.

I am wondering if it would also help to get a thicker thermal pad and put it on the other side of the "heatsink" so that there is contact between the heatsink and the chassis bottom cover (in particular if you have the chassis without the SSD door).  I haven't seen any information about anyone trying this to see if it helps reduce the drive temperature.

Not getting what you mean in the "expect it to have the lowest health status" do you mean it should be this low?? or its abnormally low? Any ways i am going OT sorry.

I mean that it should be this low.  You originally had screen shots of four drives (that's what I saw when posting); the Samsung drive shows 75% and the rest showed 90%+.  I think it's a reasonable value given the amount of writes that the drive has.  I just made the comment because again the health status is prominent in the screen shots and it makes the Samsung drive look "bad" if you don't look at the writes too.

Thank you, guys.

I looked around and I'm currently looking at three candidates:

Samsung 980 PRO - up to 7000 Mb/s - 369€

WD Black SN850 - up to 7000 Mb/s - 349€

Crucial CT2000P5PSSD8 - up to 6600 Mb/s - 328€

Still have some time to decide.

 

Just checked the specs of your new Laptop specs on Dells site it states its PCI-E 3.0 X4 Nvme so although PCI-E 4.0 NVME drives will work you will not see them high numbers.

However if your looking for Higher IOP's then it would be the Samsung 980 Pro that something that Samsung is good at and WD is yet to get to.

To be clear —

Precision 7760 and 7560 do support PCIe4 in the one NVMe slot that is by itself in the middle of the system.  The other slots in the corner support only PCIe3.

I didn't see that mentioned on their page but nice to know, but then again it didn't state that the 7560 has 3 m.2 slots and on the 7760 it has 4.

Is that the same slot accessible behind the SSD access door?

Last week I got 7560 with ssd door and the reason for opting ssd door was, easily i can add my spare 1tb ssd(970+) without opening the entire base cover.

But strangely, oem ssd(pcie3) came fitted in slot(pcie4) below the ssd door.  It's logical to use pcie4 slot for the machines  ordered with pcie4 ssd.

but for pcie3 ssd, especially people opting for ssd door it was strange decision by dell to use the pcie4 slot.

Finally i had to open complete base cover to fix the additional ssd.
