I then set them in raid 0 using EZ raid in the bios on a Gigabyte Z270X Aorus Gaming 7 and continued to have weird issues, i also have a Intel 750 as my boot drive so it looks like it was not playing nice with additional nvme drives but who knows maybe i was doing something wrong.

GL to the rest of you.

You sound like I did from an earlier post about dropping RAID. Different reasons though. I never had any issues with performance. I just did not see any real need for a spare RAID drive that was only 1TB in my system You might be correct about the NVMe controllers not working well together but I never had any issues with 3 Samsung drives. Did you try to install the drivers manually through device manager?

Actually I think I screw up my drive. I managed to update my 960 PRO with a 960 firmware. Weird thing is that magician told me there were a new version and if I wanted to update which I replied yes.
Now my drive is performing way slow which makes me wonder if 960 EVO AND 960 PRO are limited my software blinksmiley.gif

I don't have Magician installed, but I highly doubt Samsung would push new firmware through Magician without having it documented any other place on their websites?

Took the plunge and purchased the 500GB 960 Evo. Arrived last week and installed without issues on my Asus Z270H. Very happy with it. It is tiny.
