How many USB ports does this system have?

The total number of USB ports is 10 to 12 depending on the case. The motherboards we use typicall have 6 to 10 USB ports on the rear of the motherboard. These ports will be a mix of USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1. The front of the Cooler Master HAF 912 Case has 2 USB ports and the Fractal Design case has 4 USB ports.

What size hard drive is recommended for the primary OS boot drive?

Our overall best selling hard drive is the 500GB Samsung EVO Solid State (SSD). 500GB seems to be the current sweet spot for price/performance. If it's within your budget, the 1TB Samsung SSD would be a better choice if 500GB isn't enough storage space. We also allow customers to add up to 2 additional storage/backup drives. Our recommended drive is the 500GB, 1TB or 2TB Samsung 970 EVO. The 970 EVO is a much faster type of SSD that is installed in a special slot (M.2) on the motherboard, these have much better performance than traditional SSDs.

What are the M.2 SSD hard drives listed with this system?

M.2 SSD drives are a much faster hard drive than traditional SATA 3.0 SSD drives. They are smaller and plug into a special port on the motherboard, they are so small that they actually are mounted directly onto the motherboard itself. These drives are much faster but also more expensive than our traditional Kingston and Samsung SSD drives. We highly recommend an M.2 SSD if you want to get the most out of the new technology in your computer.
