Sissoft sandra reports a read speed of 800 MB/s for the 960 evo and 520 MB/s for the sata 850 evo. I've been reading that a single 2.0 pcie link should have a maximum throughput of 250 MB/s right? At a 4x link that should be 1000 MB/s and i'm getting 800MB/s.. so is that the difference between theoritcal and practical transfer rates?

A 2x mode would only net a theortical max of 500MB/s which i've already exceeded. Yet multiple programs are are showing the link mode as 2x. not 4x. So am I looking at a bios reporting error or am I still sub-par on how this drive should be performing?

Drive is rated for 3.2GB/s on a 3.0 pcie. I was expecting to see half that on a 2.0 pcie so @1.6GB/s. That would be 2x what i'm getting, and seem to support only a 2x lane usage?]


Somewhere the numbers aren't adding up.

so i put the drive/card into my a88xm board to see what would happen. it doesnt have bios support for nvme. win 10n found it and i installed samsung drivers. drive repoerted only a 2x link in this board too. when benched it produced an abysmal 180 MB/S. even with a better 2x pcie 3.0 link. my guess is the card is defective and only allowing a 2x link. Could the drive itself cause only a 2x link error?

Yes it could, that does not mean it is

Does anyone else get the sensor error (cannot monitor) on the Sabertooth 3.0? If I say Do Not Monitor then I don't have any VRM temps showing.

If you are refering to the HWinfo, you have to enable EC sensor

yeah - i couldnt find anything in the manual specifying. since the other LEDS kick on only if there is a problem I decided I should investigate. Plus, I'm having a hell of a time getting past 4.7ghz. It's 100% stable at 200.00x23.5, past that I usually get crashes. Temps are good - however voltages seem weird.

Any general suggestions for the digi+ panel? Using a h100iv2 and load is about 40c. I do have active cooling on the socket and VRMs

4.8 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






5ghz (I dont NOT recommend putting that ammout of voltage on it though) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Also, i recommend watching this vid Overclock AMD, helped me a little with settings etc. Also Hurricane28 pointed me in the right direction.
