Here are the results with my 256gb Samsung SM951.


Windows Driver With "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device" Checked. I had to have this checked with the windows driver even though it was a risk with losing data as I would get very VERY low write speeds after 10 mins.




Samsung NVME Driver "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device" Checked.


Samsung NVME Driver "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device" Un-checked. It actually works without having the box checked in policies therefore minimal risk of data loss.




So this driver seems better than the windows one for now. Looking forward to see if they actually bring out an updated NVME driver soon though, as the driver I have is for Win 7 but I am on Win 10.

No issues yet though and Trim works fine.


Heres my 840 pro raid for lol's.

How did you verify TRIM was working under this driver in Win 10?

On my X99 rig the TRIM check tool confirms that it is not for me frown.gif

Very interesting, I had exactly the same experience with my X99 system:

Very strange, seems unlikely it would be due to chipset behaviour?
