Inland Performance 1TB NVME 4.0 Drive

Hi All,

I built another PC - this one being a X570 build. I am using the ASUS TUF WIFI with a Ryzen 3600.

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-WI-FI/

https://www.microcenter.com/product/608455/performance-1tb-ssd-3d-nand-m2-2280-pcie-nvme-40-x4-internal-solid-state-drive

In using userbenchmark, it says that my inland performance drive is running below average (I believe at 33%). I have it installed in the M.2_1 slot of the board (closest to chip and GPU), even though the M.2_2 slot has the pre-installed heat sink. I looked at the user manual and it does not specify an individual M.2 slot to install within. Might it be better to install it to the M.2_2?

Also - are there any Bios settings that I might need to change in order to speed this drive up? Is it possible that I may have just received an underperforming drive via the bell curve? Any help in speeding this thing up would be appreciated. Thanks!

Their should be a setting in BIOS to switch the M.2 slot from SATA mode to PCI-E

1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110(PCIE 4.0 x4 and SATA modes) storage devices support

All of that's should be in the manual.
