[Official] Samsung SM951 Owners Club - Page 2

post #11 of 1390
All very odd. Purchased a new Samsung SM951 256GB AHCI M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 card which arrived a few days ago. Stuck it into the M.2 slot on a Asus x99 Deluxe board and fired up into the BIOS. Card was read out of the box and I was one happy bunny. I then checked on my current BIOS version (1305) and just as all good boys followed the advice on RAMCITY and upgraded the boards BIOS to the latest version 1702. Rebooted and the new M.2 drive had disappeared. After a good 5 hours of fiddling with the BIOS settings/resetting the BIOS x times and a good bit of g research discovered this page - spotted the 1602 compatibility note next to my board and hence installed the X99-DELUXE BIOS 1601... still no luck.

Can anyone tell me what the correct settings for this board should be? Most say just load up the default settings... but so far no good.

Many thanks.

Try enabling CSM and disabling secure boot in the BIOS.

Hi Crepshaw,

Many many thanks for taking the time to reply.

Launch CSM was already Enabled with the following settings:

Boot Device Control -> UEFI and Legacy OPROM
Boot from Netweoth Devices -> UEFI first
Boot from Storage Devices -> UEFI first
Boot from PCI-E/PCI Expansion Devices -> UEFI first

That said I have fiddled with most of these settings with no luck.

I also disabled Secure Boot state - to do this I had to send OS Type to 'Other OS' and then needed to go into Key Management and uninstall Secure boot keys - sadly BIOS still cannot 'see' the new M.2 drive.

Just in case any of these ring a bell here are a few settings that I am not 100% sure are correct:

Hyper ket Mode -> Disabled
SATAEXPRESS_1 SRIS Support -> Auto
S.M.A.R.T Status Check -> On
SATA Controller 1 Mode Selection -> AHCI
Support Aggressive Link Power Management -> Disabled

Intel Rapid Storage Technology is Enabled

Fast boot -> Disabled (but would like to think I have tried Enabled with most settings)

DirectKey (DRCT) -> Enabled
Above 4G Decoding -> Disabled

With more than thanks

Sorry you couldnt get it working. You could try getting a M.2 to PCIe card. It might work booting from that.

Just installed the SM951 512GB size after finding it for $352 shipped, what a beast.

-MSI X99S Gaming 7 / i7-5820 CPU

Everything look ok to you guys, any low numbers or something strange stand out? In comparing the tests to review tests using the same apps mine is slow in a few numbers, especially ATTO where a couple tests hit 400000+ at the 4.0 file size whereas mine is doing around 250000:

Well, I used the benchmark results above and compared them to scores that are posted on various review sites, and my SM951 is performing extremely well in the larger file read/writes but is getting killed in 4k tests...particularly high que depth 4k tests. It's about -45% lower than the marks should be in the following specific test spots:

Anvil 4K QD16 : Scores 98,473 IOPS, should be around 150,000 IOPS

ATTO - Everything Below 64.0 K: Scores are off on 0.5 through 64.0 by -30 to -50%, then magically catch back up to 100% where they should be by 256.0...odd)

CrystalDiskMark 4K Q32T1: Scores 337.2/308.8 while it should be around 512/450

AS SSD 4K-64Thrd: Scores 400/361 while it should be around 680/360

ASS SSD Copy-Benchmark, "Program": Scores 417 MB/s with a 3.37 s duration, should be around 780 MB/s with a 1.80 second duration

HD Tune Pro 5.50 4K random multi (32): 47202 IOPS, should be around 100000 IOPS

I'm running Windows 7, any particular OS setting or something that should be checked that would affect the smaller file transfers?

It's strange because what I've listed above are the only areas within each benchmark that were off, the other 20+ measurements within those tests were spot on. Wonder what I'm missing.

The AHCI version has been availble for a couple of weeks, so far I haven't seen an in stock listing for the NVMe version. Well, other than maybe the Ramcity listings.
