SSDs at Overclockers UK

In recent years the capacity of SSD’s (Solid State Drives) has increased significantly and the cost has fallen, making the technology more affordable and accessible than ever before. Computer solid state drives now offer significantly faster performance than traditional hard drives, bringing reliable solid state storage to laptops and desktop computers. They are also smaller and contain no moving parts, making them more durable if you’re transporting your system around. SSD’s are perfect for gamers and high performance PC users who demand fast boot times and super-fast gaming applications. Overclockers UK offers a range of gaming SSDs, notebook SSDs, SSDs for laptops, and desktop solid state storage from leading manufacturers including Samsung, NAND, Evo, Crucial and Intel.

Why Choose a Solid State Drive for Your Laptop?

A computer solid state drive has several advantages over a traditional hard disk drive. As opposed to a hard disk drive that stores data on spinning magnetic disks called platters, a computer SSD has absolutely no moving parts. Instead, data is saved to a pool of NAND flash, a type of non-volatile memory. SSDs use a grid of electrical cells to send and receive data at a rapid rate. These grids are separated into parts called "pages", and this is where the data is stored. Pages are then pooled together to form “blocks”.

Because of the lack of moving parts in a computer SSD, it is able to operate at much higher speeds than your typical HDD. In addition to this, booting up your system becomes an almost instantaneous process. The CPU is able to read data without having to wait for the spinning disks to align, or to reach their peak revolutions when starting up. A solid state drive utilises what's known as flash memory, which is similar to RAM. However, unlike RAM, an SSD will retain memory even when it loses power. RAM, on the other hand, clears whenever the computer shuts down.

By upgrading to solid state storage your system will operate at much higher speed and create less noise. An SSD for gaming is also a great way to upgrade your storage and the performance of your system without buying a new processor. Additionally, when compared to standard HDDs, solid state storage runs at much lower temperatures, allowing you to overclock your system more efficiently.

Types of SSD

There are a number of SSD variations currently on the market, with each suited to a particular application. Below, we explain the differences and advise you on the right choice for your system.

  • SATA SSDs

    SATA drives are the industry standard for laptop solid state storage as well as PC solid state storage. Available in 2.52” form factor, they are smaller than standard 3.5inch HDDs and so sometimes require a caddy to be used in order to fit the respective system. We stock brands from leading manufacturers in the industry, including Samsung, NAND, Evo, Crucial, and Intel.

  • mSATA SSDs

    mSATA allows installation of SSDs in laptops and other smaller netbooks where space is limited. In essence, mSATA solid state drives are 2.5” SSDs without the casing, saving even more space than usual. This type of SSD is connected through the PCI Express standard or the SATA standard however, adapters are available to make use of any card through any port.

  • M.2 SSDs

    Pronounced m-dot-two and known previously as Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF), M2 SSDs were designed to replace mSATA drives. A more flexible physical specification allows huge performance gains when compared with mSATA. Again, these SSDs are laptop ready but may also be used within desktop PCs where compatible. These solid state drives are connected via M.2 slot but use the PCI Express bus.

  • PCI Express SSDs

    PCI Express SSDs are extremely powerful with high read/write speeds that connect directly to your PCI Express slot. These solid state drives are still relatively expensive but offer the best performance for both laptops and desktop computers where compatible.
