My thinking is with the extra PCIe lanes directly to the CPU( With a X99 MOBO) you will be able to RAID 0 two of these using an adapter card and plugging directly into a PCIe 3.0 with a least 4X lanes each. This may get you double the seq. reads going RAID0. This would be very interesting to see. Please try and run ATTO. Sounds fun to me. thumb.gif
It should, even if you put one in a ultra M.2 slot and the other in a PCI-E card, you should be able to get around 6GB/s.

This is a single SM961 (source from a friend on FB):

Two of those 1tb models with two of these would make for a pretty wicked setup.

Water cooling is a bit overkill, a small RAM heatsink is more than sufficient. The controller has no heatsink at all normally. The extra restriction in the loop is not worth it.

Who is visiting an overclocking forum and also worried about overkill? Nice thing about it is you completely eliminate the possibility. Not everyone has great airflow in their water cooled chassis, other than indirect flow from radiator fans and (perhaps blocked or "oversubscribed") intake fan in the front of the case. Fringe cases (extremely large and extremely small) this may be helpful.

Nice benches! Numbers look great. Look forward to Raid 0.

Except the fact before I had two I had to have one first.

Sorry but I have to say it... LOL - We're water cooling SSD drives now. Wow! eek.gif

Are they single-sided? i.e. Are there memory chips on the rear side? I'm creating a parts list for an imminent Skylake ITX build and the M.2 is on the bottom of the mobo. Some folks had problem with the early, larger capacity M.2 SSDs with chips on both sides -- they made contact with circuitry components on the bottom of the motherboard. I had heard speculation that Samsung was holding off on the 1TB version of the 950 Pro until higher-density chips were available to make a single-sided M.2 SSD for that reason.

I can't wait to see a 950 Pro version in the future since the new Rampage has support for these bad boys
