Congratulations greenpc!!!

Hey guys, I'm from Brazil and I have a Dell Precision that was saved by this super cool channel. I intended to change the machine, but here I found how to make changes to the components to keep using it. Congratulations to all of you and greetings from Brazil !!!!

    • ALEXANDRE MORESQUE It's compatible, but you it will only act as a secondary drive (you can't boot from it)

    • @stormson weathers yes, i've seen this answer here ... Do you think the system gives me maximum speed of ssd nvme? Thank you for your help and kindness!

    • stormson weathers I really like my Dell Precision T 3500, it has been with me for 10 years and it has never been a problem. Today it uses 24gb of memory, and cpu x5690. Very fast! Use for work. I'm a publicist!

    • ALEXANDRE MORESQUE If it's a T3500, then yes, using that adaptor will work with that system. You're still limited on the speed of your NVME drive itself, but still faster than SATA. You can also benefit with a SATA SSD  as well to replace your boot drive.

    • stormson weathers Is it safe to use nvme? My idea is to install heavy, 3d and image editing programs.

    • stormson weathers install programs on nvme, and support files.  Ssd sata I already installed.

    • ALEXANDRE MORESQUE With that adaptor it the PCIe slot won't matter. The speed will still be the same.

    • ALEXANDRE MORESQUE For heavy editing, doing your work on nvme will show a big increase over regular hard drives. Nvme is safe (though you should still have backups) so there's nothing to worry about.

    • stormson weathers friend, watch this video... the guy said he managed to boot NVME. Without Dell Precision T3500

    • ALEXANDRE MORESQUE Hello there!

      While I appreciate the link, the creator of the video did not provide any additional means of replicating the process aside from mentioning a specific NVME drive (that's quite expensive as of 6/01/21) and using the MBR boot process. Even if the process is confirmed by others (Jbigticket23 should have the means to properly validate this), the use of a specific NVME drive on that old of hardware for booting makes it counterproductive cost wise for others with the same T3500.

      I have attempted this process using a T7600 and an older Samsung PM991 NVME drive, but as expected, nothing.

      Yes, there are some M.2 drives that can boot from the machine such as B-Key and B+M key drives, but that's because they utilize SATA lines.

      There is also a specific adaptor with BIOS support that will boot NVME drives on older hardware, but can also be quite costly in itself.

      Based on ease of availability and cost of hardware, the best option is to use a SATA SSD for your boot drive and a NVME as storage. Even as a boot drive, a SATA SSD will still give you great boot speeds and programs and data can be stored on NVME. When it's time to migrate both drives or just the NVME can go to your new machine.
