I just bought this less than a week ago lol should I return it? the polaris ssd's seems like a much faster drive


PS: mine doesn't throttle with my front rad fan blowing air to where the nvme slot is

That's actually pretty much in line with what I get with my 950 on my Gigabyte board (GA-Z170X-Gaming GT) (second M.2 slot)....



BTW you really won't know if it's throttling unless you run more than one test in a number of minutes, then compare the numbers. One instance of a benchmark may not show it.

That's a 950 Pro, not the 961, and those results are what you shodul expect from your drive.

The SM961 barely throttles with sequential write, and not at all with sustained random write workloads.

I'll believe that after I more reports/reviews come out. Right now it's just guesswork. That said, hopefully it is a bit better than the 950 in that regards. We'll see.

Here is a comparison of two 950 Pro's in Raid 0:



A bit slower in read but quite a bit faster in write for about the same price. Thinking about getting two Sm961's for Raid 0 but I dread reinstalling everything yet again! Anyone know of a really good clone/image software?

Still struggling to understand exactly what workloads you're coming up with that could be big enough to cause throttling.

At the speed that these drives write at, you must be working where some truly outrageous file sizes to produce a sustained write scenario long enough to cause throttling.

I need to say this because it's apparent people are reading something that's not there... I never said "I" had throttling issues.... I'm strictly talking about the reports out there on this issue. Don't believe me, Google it.

I'm merely bringing up a known issue with these drives, and hoping the issue gets resolved with this new release. That's all. Again... I didn't say "I" had the issue; can't really say I've noticed one way or the other. I'm simply reporting what's out there.

Well I'm more than happy! thumb.gif Fresh BIOS, fresh Windows 10 install, I'm sure I can get even more out of her if I do some OC/Tweaking





I can't even see the green drive with my video cards installed.

Can you read the temps of those things? FinalWire AIDA64 will read them if you have it. If so, can you post the temps?

Nice rig BTW.
