    Thanks for the answer. Still have no idea how Justin is getting his full speed of his 905P again. I'm happy for him but frustrated I can't achieve the same. :(

    I'm a bit confused. I looked at the Rampage 6 Extreme and it has both and ME and MEI driver, separate versions.

    Yet on the Rampage 6 Omega, they only have the MEI driver no ME drive...

    Welp Justin you were right ... and for a brief moment, it was glorious! Back to the way it was. As you said it happened after the install of IRST, MEI, Chipset, and MB drivers.

    I seem to remember a few people got theirs from "Walmart" of all places. I got mine through the now defunct NCIX from the USA side since Canada didn't have them in stock at the time.

    Tariffs are definitely having an effect from 18 months ago. That being said our Canadian dollar is at .70 cents to the US dollar and like .57 to the GPB and .66 to the EURO. SO not only do we pay...

    Yes but that doesn't really help with the SSD speeds. The microcode that was before the Spectre fiasco, was allowing the 900p to get up to 300-400Mb/s on 4k random read/writes at QD1. The moment...
