Well originally I chose the Western Digital Cavier and this was another headache... literally. My build was depressingly making a loud humming noise that at first I thought was the graphics card. After some sleuthing, and since I had my OS on the SSD I unplugged the hard drive and thank God again the noise went away.

I bought the Seagate on Amazon and day later it was prrrfect. Doens't make any noise at all.

This is my main data drive, with all files on my solid state C drive backed up on this in addition to my extensive collection of music, cinema, and images and my own music, artwork, and writing. I had a 500GB hard drive die on me back in 2011 and lost almost all my creative work & downloads dating back to the late '90s, so I learned to back up (there are two types of people in this world - those who have lost digital data and those who will). The important files on this are backed up to a 2TB external drive, and some of them a second time to a cloud service. As for this drive, it's a winner - I did a lot of research, and this is the best value drive with the most amount of storage and fastest read/write speeds. 4TB is the point where hard drives either drop to 5400/5900rpm or get much more expensive for 7200rpm (e.g., Barracuda Pro 4TB for twice the price of this), so this is the sub-$150 sweet spot (costing barely any more than a 2TB drive) and a great accompaniment to a smaller solid state drive. This drive performs well at media editing & playback and gaming, read/write speeds are as fast as advertised, and it has a remarkably low price tag of $90 (three cents per gigabyte and $30 per terabyte).

Super Awesome Stoage! But for some reason it didn't show up on my computer but it did on device manager so I had to do some tweaking (unplugging the SATA cable wasn't one) just playing around with was something I did but its stil, good to make sure if you have a M.2 that it's not using the same SATA ports as the one your drive is connected to and if it is just change you M.2 to 4x mode (recommend) or move the location of the HDDs SATA cable (not recommend)

Solid 7200RPM 3TB HDD for the price. I bought because MicroCenter had these on sale. I was going to only but a 1TB HDD but then for a a little more money decided it was worth it to go with the 3TB. Has been running great so far.
