Specs:

MSI M7 Gaming Z170a Motherboard
i7 6700k
32gb G.Skill TridentZ RAM (4x8gb) @ 3200
Asus Strix GTX 1080ti OC
FrescoLogic USB PCI-e hub
Samsung 850 evo (OS drive in m.2_1 slot)
Samsung 980 (Installed in m.2_2 slot)

Motherboard Manual: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1104976/Msi-Z170a-Gaming-M7.html#manual

 

Can't figure out how to get my new 980 m.2 nvme ssd to run at full speed. I removed all other Sata hard drives except for the 850 evo my OS is installed on to rule out conflicting/shared lanes and no improvement. Both Samsung Magician and CrystalDiskMark are benching the 980 ssd at roughly 900/860MBs read/write. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

I have another thread open on TomsHardware with screenshots and a bit more info: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/installed-2nd-samsung-m2-ssd-a-m-2-nvme-980-and-its-speeds-a...

Hello userMoBqVL01T4,

Did the BIOS update for your z170 motherboard solve your issue? Based off of your Tom's hardware post, it looks like there was a BIOS update available for your motherboard.
