I was slightly regretting not getting the 1tb ex920 nvme drive at $145 around turkey day.. but actually glad i waited now.

 

Decided to try it since it's $152 at newegg (no tax for some) - $10 with MASTERCARD code and mc payment + $12 in ebay bucks for later

I don't know why my NVMe drive in my new computer is several seconds slower bootup than my SATA SSD in my old machine.  It benchmarked very high too.   I need to figure out some BIOS settings that speed up the boot sequence.  Still, it's weird: new computer with nothing on it booting up slower than a years old machine.

Yeah i imagine it could be a bios setting like Fast Boot being disabled, but the times I've had this problem is when I had cloned a previous drive.  I only ended up solving it with a fresh install.

Oh and Corsair rocks.  They came through on delivering the replacement front panel.  It was a whole fixture and not just the glass which surprised me.  It came in a giant box and was easily a $50+ part after shipping.  Case is fixed and like brand new again.  Best customer service ever.

I was considering the HP ex920 drive the other day when someone posted the sale on Reddit.  But then someone else posted the 1tb HP ex920 benchmark comparisons with the Samsung 970 Evo, which is why I bought the smaller capacity Samsung in the first place. 

 

The ex920 is still the best valued 1tb NVMe drive in 2018 though.

They had that case for $100 at my local Bargain Hunt.  Amazon return but looked to be complete.

I wouldn't call this gambling. When you gamble, there's usually a possibility (often remote, I'll grant you that, but a possibility) that you could win.

Alright I did it in for full 10 because what the hell. Unfortunately they deliver them as mystery as well so I'll have to attempt redeem on all of them hopefully something worth while

Edit coming soon

Okay revealing gives us names of keys.
Dead effect
Innerspace
Hover
STARWHAL
PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate
Duke of Alpha Centauri
A Normal Lost Phone
Next Up Hero
Operation Flashpoint Red River
Pankapu Complete Edition

I haven't heard of a single game so I'm gonna say as expected waste of money.

I see, the mystery is why would anyone expect anything good to come out of this bundle.... So, BossKey_Fox is in for 10 bundles, right?

I bought a Fanatical mystery Christmas bundle for you!

 

(not for me, nuh-uh. and I totally did not keep Galaxy Squad, Super Cloudbuilt, Hover, Operation Flashpoint: Red River Detail, Wick and Upside Down) It was a 4 pack NOT a 10 pack, just so we are clear.

 

IZTE9-Q*AH7-2B2N2 - Gloom

 

*NTEF-N6BRK-8B9F4 - Pix The Cat

 

*RG0C-FV6KK-XGXAV - The Cat Lady

 

4*CIT-3ZZVN-AC25C  - Pixel Junk Monsters Ultimate

 

(Mystery letter is J)

Every game listed is a game I already own, so I'm either going to skip it or buy one in a drunken stupor and give away the keys in drabe's honor.

Just because Fox wasted money on tons of GMG mystery bundles is no reason to expect he'd do the same on these.

Cool, it let me activate Borderlands: Pre-Sequel, which I already had.

I think I'm been reading wallstreetbets too much recently, and contracted their autism and bought two bundles.

Razer has introduced Razer Softminer, the latest and greatest way to convince rubes to help destroy the environment and rack up sky high electricity bills all in the name of free crummy rewards.

Here was mine from the Mystery Bundle. Definitely see a lot of crossover with what other people are getting but a few were different. 

 

Civilization V

The Cat Lady

Operation Flashpoint Red River

Charlie's Adventure

Star Wars: Jedi Knight Academy

Asteroid Bounty Hunter

Galaxy Squad

Upside Down

Cybercube

Hover

 

I know I shouldn't ... but I will most likely pick up another today as well. Why not ..

Those are quite meh, I'm not a monster was just free on Steam directly and Beholder 2 was free if you did their April Fools survey. And even if you likely missed that, you probably didn't even play first game yet :D

I know that it's a small sample size, but I like that none of the five "headline" games have shown up in the bundles that have been posted here so far.

Thank you!  I learned my lesson.  I bought BOIIII for $30.  No more temptation for me.
