My SM951 is running perfect on the ASrock X99 Pro. Bench numbers are the Same as when running on the Rampage extreme V.
Glad I picked up one from Flexx. When these hit Newegg I bet the price will be $549+
I've owned the XP941 (512gb) also. The 951 (512gb) is about 60% faster with writes and about 110% faster with reads.

Asrock hooked me up fat with a Beta bios that solved all my problems.

Previous SSD for my OS:

samsung 64GB 830



sm951



A marginal improvement to say the least. Go technology!

I do have some quick questions regarding this drive for all you guys way smarter than i:

(1) Do i need to install any kind of SSD management software for the SM951? i am using the Intel Latest INF package for my MB.

(2) Are any of you actively cooling this thing? the tweaktown review said this SM951 gets toasty under load. i was planning on putting some memory heatsinks on the 3 main chips but would appreciate any pictures of your proven solutions before i get my gorilla hands on this tiny thing..

(3) Similar to (2) above, i moved my graphics card from PCI-E 1 to PCI-E 2 so it wasnt covering up my M2 slot and helping with airflow. am i losing any graphics performance by doing this with a single card? my reading says i get 16 pipes either way but what i dont know about x99 architecture would fill a large library....

I few answers from my viewpoint.

No management software needed. Just load the drivers supplied with the MB. Your MB has the Ultra M.2 (PCIe 3.0 X4) slot so you can achieve max speeds.


(2) Are any of you actively cooling this thing? the tweaktown review said this SM951 gets toasty under load. i was planning on putting some memory heatsinks on the 3 main chips but would appreciate any pictures of your proven solutions before i get my gorilla hands on this tiny thing.. The XP941 is much hotter than the SM951. I would not put any heat sinks on the 951. It was designed just as is. We all know Samsung builds a great SSD.

(3) Similar to (2) above, i moved my graphics card from PCI-E 1 to PCI-E 2 so it wasnt covering up my M2 slot and helping with airflow. am i losing any graphics performance by doing this with a single card? my reading says i get 16 pipes either way but what i dont know about x99 architecture would fill a large library....

No, you will see no difference moving your card.
I put my dual 290x card (Devil 13 Dual core) on a 3.0 X8 and saw maybe a 1-2% drop in benchmarking. Keep in mind this was two 290x's on one 3.0 8x slot. So, a single GPU card will see almost no difference vs. a 3.0 16x slot. Bottom line, the PCIe 3.0 slots have a enormous about of bandwidth.


Hope this helps

I would put some heatsinks on the controller. The drive doesn't need them in order to stay alive but if you read the anandtech review you'll see that it throttles a lot. So if you put some heatsinks you'll have better performance

Thanks for that. If anyone knows of any issues please post.

I think I now need to add a signature so that I stick to the rules etc..
