Stupid question. But can this SSD be used as your C:Drive for the OS?

Hello DxTrEm3Fx
It can, but it would require Windows 10 (native NVMe drivers) and a chipset that is compatible with PCI-e NVMe drives by default. Unfortunately older platforms such as Z87/Z97 require workarounds, but it is still possible.

Thank you for the response. I have an ASRock z87 extreme9/ac MB. So I think I'll just go with another SSD drive. My Corsair Neutron GTX 480 GB is running out of life. And I'm going from W7 to W10.

Hi, just bought an nx500 as a replacement for a bricked revodrive 3. It doesn't read in my Asus P9x79 so can't use as a c drive. Is there a work around?
