    Are NVMe PCI-E 3.0 x4 and NVMe PCI-E 4.0 x4 the same physical size?

    Feeling lazy to do google search but I think they have the same overall footprint but physically the 4.0x4 has greater physical electrical conductor size or contacts. It must be designed to physically elctrically conduct better and this is why to get best conduction you have to have a...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    As I have presented RAID 0 NVME works on my Acer Nitro 5 but only from MS Windows 10 hardware programmed control. My Acer Nitro 5 does have a ene I/0 controller. Photo of ene I/O controller on my Acer Nitro 5 motherboard attached for reference. Southbridge is a type of nomenclature used for...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    I still would prefer to have my main processing progams on the two nvme faster drives and use the Sata ssd for reliable data back up. This notebook is being used as a portable work station and for video/audio/music fun. It's a nice powerful budget notebook but i wish the low level motherboard...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    Thanks. Very informative. I have abandoned ship on my RAID 0 efforts because my motherboard doesn't support low level RAID 0 via BIOS control. I'm going to install Windows 10 64 bit in the P31 0 NVME slot and the other P31 in the 1 NVME slot for programs and S31 in the SATA for back up non...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    The fans on my notebook were observed to be running at very low speed. I didn't have the custom fan control application running at the time of testing but I'm not sure if the notebook's fan controller software operates off of the NVME temperature feed back sensor. Which benchmark did you use...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    The stock NVME drive used thermal pad and made contact with the heat sink. If I would have left the paper sticker on the P31 NVME without thermal pad it would not make contact with the heatsink. These P31 drives do get hot. Highest temp I've seen is 68C when copying 256GB partion to the RAID...

    Having a tough time figuring out the best RAID 0 configuration for fresh new Windows 10 install on the NVME drives in RAID 0. Coming close to get the software configures. Acer has not supportive information on how to do this in any manual that I'm aware of. Probably the best implementation...

    Gaming PC... designed around storage??

    I'm not sure I've never done it but apparently it's possible with the card. I would use that card for RAID 0 on all 4 slots. The use other storage drive connections on a motherboard using designed interface not part of the RAID 0.

    Gaming PC... designed around storage??

    For a gaming rig or flat out supreme work station storage speed is going to become a bottleneck in processing speed if it is lagging a process. AMD has powerful multicore processing for game loads or any process load. Fast memory controller, HIGH bandwidth PCI express lanes. For gaming...

    Correct sequence for using 2x NVME in RAID

    Check your manufacturer motherboard for storage drive compatibility. I like to update latest and greatest motherboard bios firmware and do a clean crispy latest and greatest operating system install.
