Hi all,


I have a weird thing going with my system and i can't seem to solve it.


The problem is this, i get low IOPS with my Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD, around 75K random read and 65K random write. This is way lower than advertised and i see no reason why my FX-8350 CPU cannot handle more IOPS.


When i had the Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB i got the IOPS its rated for. I also get reset to device raidport1 was issued, rather strange because i am not running any raid configurations.

I have the latest chipset installed and i tried to install older ones with no luck and i get the same annoying warning message.


My Components are:


FX-8350 @4.8 GHz

Corsair H100i with Noctua NF F-12 Industrial PPC 3000tpm fans.

16 GB G.Skill TridentX 2400 MHz

Gigabyte 990FX Gaming G1

Cooler Master V850

MSI 970 Gaming 4G.

Windows 10 Pro.


I checked if Windows is corrupt but its all running fine, no problems and no corruptions. My overclock is also very stable and temps never reach higher as 60c under full load.

The SSD is also running very cool and is nowhere near throttling point.


Any help would be much obliged,

Thanks in advanced,
