    Also the sm951 doesn't works well with any other BCLK frequencies beside 100 and 125. You will get BCD boot error if other than 100/125.
    Hello KENSHICO

    In regard to you M.2 SM951, I have a XP941 the little bother it. But yes I had same issue you have encounter with performance, if you want to try this advice that I'm going to tell you, you more that welcome and can let me know the out come of it, to see if it is a relate problem with this m.2 form factor with use in desktops.

    KENSHICO, this tweak is like when you install the RST driver in a laptop, cause most desktops you can disable the pic-e link power in bios, but some laptop don't have this options in bios and remember that this SSDs form factors where indeed intend to be use in laptops so when you use this form factor of SSD and mean Samsungs don't have any experience with others, by disabling the C_state in bios you get the results of better performance reads and writes.

    Oh and their is the catch on this, this SSDs types can't use the rst driver cause it use its own SATA driver so their is the reason in loss of performance at normal use. I hope my explanation is been helpful to you and others with this form factor of SSDs type or at less brand. cause don't know about others behaves.

    Ok, this is the tweak, on the same time run Anvil with C-state in bios (ON) like you have been using it so far no change. Then afterwards run Anvil again with change in bios of the C-state (OFF), then compare the results and if you see a big difference or close to the promote results of the M.2 so there you have it the reasons why it's not performing as advertise. Let me know what have you found.

    Hey

    Just a heads up concerning two gpu chips on 1 pcb. I have a gtx690 and it's all good on my end. Don't see how it would go wrong with a R9 295. This board is uber stable..

    Edit : multi gpu performance is only as good as the driver/game support. The hardware works great but the software is the problem.. Most of the time

    Thanks

    Hi dude

    I run an XP941 in the R5E as my win 8.1 boot drive. Its fast. Im jealous and plan to replace it with an SM951 mid year. Im also moving to Hong Kong in June. Where did you get your SM 951 from?

    Make sure you read this before trying to install windows 8.1 on the SM951
    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...stallation-FAQ

    This part is important:
    ********
    Should I install Windows in UEFI mode or legacy mode?
    For Plextor M6e owners, you can go with either install. Nevertheless a UEFI installation would be ideal since you get faster boot up times, better integration with hardware and a few extra features.

    For Samsung XP941 owners, you're stucked with UEFI. Since the UEFI driver is embedded into the firmware itself, you will have no problems installing in this mode. The problem arises when you want to do a legacy installation because it requires a driver to be loaded during the installation process. With the XP941 being an OEM product, there are no drivers available to install in legacy mode.


    How do I install Windows in UEFI mode?
    As soon as the ASUS logo pops up during post, spam the F8 key. You will then be presented with a window to choose your boot device. Select your installation media that has the UEFI prefix.
    *********

    This applies to the XP941 and honestly I am not sure if anyone knows if it will apply to the SM 951 as well. But I would guess it would.

    On the XP 941, if you don't do this....when you get to the screen where windows asks what drive you want to install on, after you select the XP941 you will get an error saying "Drive Locked / Unable to continue".

    Dear The Veterant,
    Thank you for the advice.
    Samsung advertised the speed up to 2050/1550 read/write for sm951. But i only got around ~1560/1570 read/write. And yes i always set c-state off. I guess samsung advertised that speed for the nvme version of the drive. I got the ahci stick.
