What is the consensus regarding m.2?

I have a 950 pro and several 850 EVO SSDs, and they don't seem to be performing well (according to benchmarks).

"This motherboard features the m.2 Slot which shares bandwidth with the SATA6Gb/S port and PCI-E Gen3 x4 and is dedicated only to the operating System" is a little troubling.
Are there specific ports that the SATA SSDs should use to avoid sharing bandwidth?

If you'd want to run your Xeons at full turbo.. Just run them at full load 24/7....

Processors have [base clock], [all core boost] and [maximum boost] -https://www.pugetsystems.com/blog/2015/07/09/Actual-CPU-Speeds---What-You-See-Is-Not-Always-What-You-Get-675/

All core boost is easy. Just have windows use 100% of the CPU at all times. For me, this makes my 2600v3 (2.4 base), run at 2.6 at all times.

Is there a MOBO that allows 24/7 maximum boost? That would be crazy....

Hi there have u downloaded the driver installer for the 950 pro?

Also make sure you have the latest bios for the motherboard. If you can ditch the ssds or use a docking station. 500 mb/s is slow by today's standards. I wouldn't bother with ssds anymore not now thay nvme is here.

Yup, I had to install the Samsung driver from USB to install the OS (because I'm running Windows 7).

I have a few TB of SSDs.. they don't need to be lightning fast, but I have them already, and they should be perfectly fast. Are you saying they would perform better in a docking station?

All should be working fine. Using xeons especially dual xeons you should have enough lanes to operate all of those at the proper speeds. Download the manual and check which sata ports you should use. When I built the one for the client we only used the m.2 so I didn't check the sata ports at all.

Looks like page 58 has the (partial) answer: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/Socket2011-R3/Z10PE-D8_WS/Manuals/e9804_z10pe-d8_ws_manual_for_web_only.pdf

two of my 850 EVOs are plugged into SATA1. So, plugging them into SATA3 should improve their speed... but at the same time taking bandwidth from the m.2? seems less than ideal, especially for such an expensive board..

edit: switched SSDs to SATA3 but unfortunately nothing changed. If anyone has any idea why my drives are so slow, I'd appreciate it! (the 850s are fairly full, but still the 950 pro is performing badly)

Nice, the Xeons I plan to get can turbo up to 3.5GHz, and this board does automatic overclocking so a small 10% overclock on a Xeon is nice.

Awesome thanks!

Question,

updated the boards bios, and now I can't seem to get into the bios, it seems to skip it and go straight to OS. Any ideas?

share your benches.

I am seeing the 951 NMVe I have in the M.2 slot and the 2 750ssd i have in slot 5 and 7 working up to rated specs.




Slot 1 - Titan X
Slot 3 - Titan X
Slot 5 - Intel 750 1.2TB
Slot 6 - LSI 9260-8i
Slot 7 - Intel 750 1.2TB

m.2 - Samsung 951 NVMe 512GB
