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.

My main storage drive on which I have my extensive collection of music, cinema, literature, and images as well as my own music recordings, visual artwork, and writing documents. I lost much of my work when my sole drive died on my in 2011, and I intend to not repeat the same mistake; most of the files on this are backed up to a 2TB external drive and the most important ones a second time to cloud storage. This drive is a winner, with very speedy 7200rpm read/write speeds and a roomy 3TB storage capacity at $90 - a great accompaniment to a smaller solid state drive.

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.
