Thank you! I also got a Intel 600P in the second NVME slot. I am getting the same kind of results.
If we compare our results with that from Maxmix65 (OCN 960/evo topic), our 4k read and write are quite low.
He has a gigabyte ax370 gaming 5 board and is running the test on W7.

I have the Samsung in M2_1 and the Crucial in slot M2_2.
Upon re-reading the manual, am I right to assume that M2_1 is the only M.2 slot that accepts SATA drives (as well as PCIe Gen3x4)? It seems the M2_2 slot only accepts PCIe Gen2x4 drives and doesn't recognise SATA M.2 drives.
If this is right, then to get both drives to work I would need to swap them over and lose the extra speed PCIe speed of the M2_1 slot. Would the PC still boot from the M2_2 slot?
Also, any suggestions on the power switch issue?
Yes that's correct the second part doesn't support SATA drives. You can swap the drives and then use m2_2 as boot option by setting it in bios
