Server versions are SAS based and you will not be able to connect them unless you pay for an Raid-On-Chip adapter card that has SAS connectors.

Those SSD's are easily as costly as 2 Titans..or 4 or 8 Titans !!!!

Samsung made new Server SSD's that sell for 400 round about, which is a very good price but you still need an SAS controller. SOME X99 boards have them onboard as LSI ( LSI belongs to Intel ) Adapters and 2-channels usually. The smalles Adapter sells for about 4-500€ without cables and Battery...add another 100-200 for that !

Get a Pro version next time.

From my post above, 20TB TBW on a 256GB-850-Pro is 2% off, whereas for the EVO modell this is more than 25% OFF.

the Pro as you can see is over 10x better in TBW allowed before failure is imminent and also Samsung will not cover any warranty if the TBW is reached

Screw the Evo pal, next time pay 30€ more and get the right SSD



THE ONLY reason why I use an 840 Evo is that I got 4 of them for free, that easy. It holds the least games I play


edit* samsung says 150TBW for 850pro-256GB.....I now wonder where the 98% health come from...LoL

BACH TO 15k 3.5" HDD's !!! LOL

I dont think thats gonna happen, SSDs here cost too much, in fact it was a big effort to buy this evo.

Lifetime of my SSD is 220 Tb written and after a year and a half I wrote about 5 Tb, including two complete upgrades from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and back to Windows 7. No worry about wearing.

I wouldn't worry about it. Just replace the drive when it fails and never ever have your important documents only on physical drives, keep them in the cloud and never worry about backups again.

FWIW:
I have a 120 GB 850 Pro SSD.
It has Windows 7 and release DCS installed since I bought it in October 2014.

It has been filled to the brim most of the time and has to this date reached ~12 TBW.
Even if it was an Evo, I would still have around 84 % lifetime left on it.

Or, to put it like this:
With the current speed of wear, I would have around 18 years of total lifetime in it, which means 15 years remaining from now, if it was an Evo.

I don't think you should have much to worry about.

One thing though, make sure you switch off any type of defragmenting on your SSD.
It has no use on an SSD, and only increases wear on it.
But if you run the Samsung Magician SW and follow the recommendations in it, you should be all fine.

Edit:
I should mention, that I have all storage data on a separate HDD.
Downloads, documents, photos etc.

Heavy I/O ??????????????

THAT IS E X A C T L Y what SSD's are for !!!!!!!!

You dont buy a Porsche and then take the 2CV from Munich to Frankfurt cause you are worried about gas consumption and tyre wear & tear on your 911 , or would you ?

By all means, use that SSD wherever heavy I/O takes place !

I think the point was the tons of writes not the heavy i/o

tons of writes = lots of "I"

The faster you can write to a medium the less time slices that process occupies from your available slices = better, more optimized.

edit: since no "I" happens without verification it always drags the same amount of small "O"'s behind. There you have heavy I/O

You should put DCS on the SSD, damn the cost. The difference it makes in loading is incredible.

Besides, the wear is not significant. I'm running a 850 EVO too I think and I'm around ~ 1 TB over a year ( or more I can't recall when I bought it).

Set up temporary stuff and environment to a normal HDD, hell I even linked my user directory to the HDD (although that was a bit of a bitch to do) and that should reduce the amount of load. Installing random stuff to the HDD and only putting the important and power hungry stuff on the SSD can also help.
