    Cpu and ram are probably the safest in my opinion. GPUs are usually pretty good, but verify fans functioning and avoiding old mined on cards being the priority (unless priced appropriately). Motherboards have more that can go wrong, and ssd die with use, so they are what I am less likely to get used. That being said, I have no issues buying them used either if the price/situation make it worth it. Power supplies I would buy used if it’s a budget build, but only if it is a quality unit and not too old.

    Very recent we took a long hard look at the hunter orange-clad LaCie Rugged SSD 1TB and walked away very impressed with what LaCie had created. That model was a USB 3.1 gen 2 beast. One which it was as rugged as it was fast. As we made mention in that review the LaCie Rugged SSD was not the premier/flagship ‘rugged’ model, rather the LaCie Rugged SSD Pro took that honors. Thanks to the good people at LaCie’s we can show you what this $399 (USD) 1TB model has to offer that the LaCie Rugged SSD series cannot. Without going too deep into things just yet, these differences vary from the subtle (better data protection) to the blatant (Thunderbolt 3 instead of USB interface) and are how LaCie was able to create a ‘Pro’ model which takes nothing away from the non-Pro variant. Instead is in and of itself a unique model worthy of its own special ‘pro’ moniker. This is rather refreshing as usually when companies create a pro and non-pro model variants… it is nothing more than a cash grab with only slight differences separating one from the other. That is not the case with the LaCie Rugged SSD Pro. There are indeed a lot of similarities but the obvious time and attention to detail makes this a new and different external storage device. Different in a good way. We will go over the ins and outs of what has and has not changed, but with an asking price a hundred dollars more than the non-Pro model, the burning question everyone will have is simple: is this price difference justified? Is this model really that much better than the LaCie Rugged SSD? Considering how potent and robust the non-Pro model is that is indeed a rather high threshold to clear. By the end of this review you will not only have a firm idea on what each model has to offer, but which will be right for your personal set of circumstances, needs, requirements… and even wants. So, without further preamble let’s take this beauty for a spin. Read Full Review

    Interesting question. Yes they do state in their specs sheet pdf that you can download. The tricky thing is... its only in the PDF. So it could be changed out at a later date. However, considering LaCie is Seagate and the new drive would have to meet the same specs it is unlikely that they would change it to a worse drive. Most likely if they do change it, they will change the model name. That is usually how Seagate and LaCie do things. This is the spec sheet for the 2TB'er and it too says what they use: https://www.lacie.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/lacie-rugged-ssd-pro-DS2017-2-2001US-en_CA.pdf

    *Full disclosure = this is not my first time I just so happen to have Cool Labs Liquid Ultra on hand not to mention a Rockit Cool delidder* And I am back up and running!!! Preliminary results are AMAZING! Check out these load temps taken the same way as before! Yowza Curious how the delid procedure went? It was super easy. I am sure that the TIM was totally "let go" under the IHS. Substantially less force was needed than what I know to be normal. I believe that I only needed enough shearing force to overcome the IHS adhesive because the TIM was not stuck to the cpu die whatsoever. This is what it looked like immediately after delidding. Looks like garbage TIM to me. Next I cleaned it up as good as I thought was needed. Note that it does look like I could have done better on the IHS but it was suuuuper smooth already despite what it may look like. Here I applied the "CLU" Next I used the Rockit Cool to relid the cpu using Gorilla Gel Super Glue to bond the two together. There you have it. A delidded, Liquid Metal'd and relidded 8700k The only reason I was unsure about delidding is because personal history has taught me that some people do not want to buy a used delidded cpu.

    Hey you yes you Shuddup you're stealing something already in the works haha jk Yah that is a great idea and I think I still have a 2500 to toss against it, but I do have a 2500s for sure maybe I'll have some other good i5 that's not low power but even that would make a good comparison
