My suggestions would be to run the PC on stock settings, removing CPU OC, and re-test the 960 EVO. Unstable OCs make PCs do weird stuff.

Check M2 SSD temp. on HWinfo64, might be throttling if it's overheating but I doubt it.

Reinstall everything and re-test.

If all else fails just RMA the drive.

While the last suggestion sucks, I agree. It does not make much sense however, that it tests good in the SM Suite but performs like shit in actual use. 

Are there multiple M.2 sockets on the board?

did you look in the BIOS for anything related?

found this for starters:

and this

Yes tried all of these.

I would first start with updating the bios on the board, most manufacturers have made this a painless process. 99% of motherboards shipped are revision 1.0 and in turn have the first bios version written for that board. If you search the manufacturer website I bet you find there have been several newer revisions made for your board. 

Also, give this a look. http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/960evo/  Did you install the drivers from this site?

According to the forum post linked above, the board supports m.2 PCI, which the 960 evo is, so that's likely not the issue.

Yes installed all of the drivers.

No temperature issues, and tried all kinds of configs, even returned to stock with no change in drive performance.

Nope just one, and it's in the #1 slot that doesn't share bandwidth anything else.

 

Maybe I'll just have to RMA at this point I guess.

Do another check in BIOS and monitoring software to see if everything's set up correctly, like PCI-E 3.0 x4 speed for M2_1 slot and an alternative benchmark like CrystalDiskMark. Magician's pretty meh.

Try M2_2 port too to check if MOBO is defective too.

If everything fails, just RMA I guess.

      Hi All. First post here. Tried searching a bit, but didn't see anything already mirroring my situation.
      With the release of alpha 3.0 I've gotten back into SC a bit, but my gaming rig (built in 2010) is definitely showing its age. I'm not sure if its my RAM or CPU thats really holding it back. I suppose its also possible that with the game being unoptimized, the performance I'm getting is just how it is. Anyway, I'm looking for upgrade advice for my current PC. I'd like to keep the upgrade cost around $500-$700 (I'm not trying to build a whole new PC if possible).
      Current Rig:
      Intel i7 950 | ASUS RAMPAGE III GENE X58 Exp | MSI GTX 1060 6GB | 12GB DDR3-1333 OCZ Gold (triple channel) Corsair H60 | Antec mini P180b | 850W Corsair TX850W  | 2x Acer 24" Looking for advice on what parts to upgrade. I also currently have 1 sata3 SSD and a couple of standard 1TB HDDs. I'm basically thinking I need to look at RAM or CPU, but that means a whole motherboard swap as well, so I'm really not sure what I can get for ~$500. I've been out of the PC building loop for awhile now. (like I said I last build in 2010). Looking forward to your help!

      So, long story short, my GPU fried after a bad accident with some thermal paste and I must pick a new one.
      Basic data: I have a i7 2600k ( admittedly old, it's going to be the next thing I switch), 16 gig of ram and a SSD for SC.
      So, to keep it short, which one would you pick between a Strix RX580 8GB and a Cerberus GTX 1070TI 8 GB and why?
      Thanks

      Hey guys looking for some opinions on a build for a client
       

      He plans to use it for gaming but its also intended for schoolwork and general work. The main request was that it was not "slow" for general use (MS word/web surfing) and to play rainbow 6: Siege and other games. Im not sure if they have a monitor but ima say its for 1080p gaming
      Would you guys change anything?
