Hui, I'm buying this today to take advantage of the $40 off the SSD. Critique welcome, also, is everything compatible? Thanks in advance!

Get this Samsung RAM. I have the XM3 and was unimpressed with it's stability.

better build. if you want a bigger SSD, go ahead

also the capstone is made by superflower, just as good as seasonic

I'm upgrading my SSD in my work PC today to a Vertex 4, I'll be able to see first hand what these drives are like. I'm still a bit reserved about it but hopefully today will change my opinion. The PCPAC Silencer MKIII 1200W is also a Superflower PSU and Jonnyguru gave it a 9.5 rating so it must be good.
