    No problem!!

    I haven't tried the drive in another computer, unable to since no one I know had an NVME drive on their system. I have, however, as stated in my initial post tried a different drive in both the M.2 slots. My read/write results were the same, with the M.2.1 slot being half as fast as the M.2.2 slot. So while I am not able to try a different machine, I have been able to try two different drives in both slots and had the same results. I upgraded the SSD drive from a 500 Gb to a 1 TB, went from a samsung 960 EVO to a 970 EVO plus last week. The only reason I discovered the issue is that I did a speed test before I removed the old drive and did a speed test when I installed the new one and saw the speed issue.


    I have not attempted to open a support ticket with asus support, something I may do.

    Here is a short report of my system,

    Ok, trying a different drive is quite equal to testing the same drive in another pc...
    If I don't read bad, you have overcloked you CPU: can you make a test without OC?
    I see you have plenty of HDD and SATA optical device... try to leave only the nVme SDD connected, if you can.

    Have you set the "Link Modes" shown on page 3-17 of the Manual? Maybe they got set back to default. Also, is the new drive aligned properly to the 4k aligment? Maybe that didn't happen properly when you restored to it. Grasping at straws here to try and find some answers

    I've run the speed tests again. I moved the drive back into the M.2.1 slot, no overclocking, removed all other drives, same result, see below

    I've tried it with it set to auto, gen 1, gen 2, gen 3, doesn't make a difference.

    Can you explain what you mean by 4K alignment? Thanks. After some research, I've found information of 4K alignment, and I've checked my partition starting offset number and it's divisible by 4096 with no decimal, so I THINK I'm ok.

    I can't really think of any other test to do… the strangest thing I've ever heard about this mobo…
    Sorry, I we keep monitoring this thread hoping the solution will come.
    Meanwhile, if I were in your shoes, I'd open a ticket with Asus assistance.

    Thanks for your advice and I'm going to contact Asus and see if they can figure it out. I'll update the thread when I have something new to report. Appreciate the help!

    Well, I'm in contact with Asus support, not too impressed yet. I received the first reply today to my issue, the reply was to install the Samsung NVME driver, already installed. Then to change the boot from storage device setting from legacy to UEFI First, this is under the CSM/Boot setting in the BIOS, next was to disable superfetch in windows 10, it was already, then to disable windows defrag in windows 10, which it already was.

    Hoping for something that is going to fix the issue, not holding my breath. I replied back to them today and included the test results from the cyrstaldiskmark 7 tests showing the difference between slot M.2.1 and M.2.2.
