Hi, quite recently i switched my PC storage from an EVO 850 250GB SSD + 2x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3R HD to full SSD.

The gamedata drive is now the Samsung 870 EVO 2TB - runs great!

The OS Drive should have been the Corsair Force MP600 1TB - runs sadly not great at all! Posted Image
The reason to buy this one was i wanted to test out a NVME drive and it had the same warranty, 3 times the durability as the Samsung 970 EVO Plus and a Heatsink which gives it an Edge in cooling thus longer high speed data transfer.

Yet it makes my system run like **** bcs somehow if i put it into the M2A slot with 4 PCIe lanes it stalls the System heavily and anything stutters and sputters and stalls, nothing runs smooth despite top notch data tranfer rates.

The solution was to put it into the M2B Slot with only 2 PCIe lanes so the stalls almost disapeared but in MW5 i have qutie frequently bad FPS coming from this drive.

As Benchmark some 3DMark numbers...

My Sys contains of a Ryzen 3600 Stock, 2x16GB DDR4 3600 and the RX480 8GB.
The old storage solution would have 3DMark show ~4550 3DM points.

The new storage solution with the MP600 in M2A between 3800 3DM points(maximum performance energy setting) and 4100 (balanced energy settings) and heavy stutter and stalling.
Yeah it gets worse the higher i set the performance via the energy plan settings. Posted Image

The MP600 put into M2B would give ~4450 3DM points anyway with minimal stutter.

With the MP600 replaced by the old Samsung EVO 850 i get ~4570 3DM points with smooth as silk FPS.

Why the Corsair Force MP600 stalls my system i dont know but the Benchmarks as well as the gaming experience speaks volume that it is not suited as OS-Drive and should be avoided as such!!!

I will send mine back and change it for something else that hopefully sutis the use case.


Thats it - have fun!

Reading a few threads on the Corsair forums.. ouchie. For a few, running it as a data drive had no real negative results but as the OS drive... /shudders..

Always buy Samsung for Flash Memory, they do it best.

Great advice but sadly does not help...

Some blame the latest firmware which i have as it is a new drive.
Some blame Windows...

Rumor is that a 3rd party firmware floating around in south korea solves the issue as the stalls come from Windows overwhelming the SSD cache and and they rewrote the algorythm to clear the SSD cache quicker...

I wont wait for that...

Corsair makes great system ram but their forays into ssd flash isn't their best. They make decent product but for ssd I'll always eat the cost and go samsung until reviews say otherwise.

In Win11 the Corsair MP600 now seems to work properly.


The PC is so far a little faster in 3DMark (about ~100 points).
Ryzen 3600
RX 480 8GB
32GB (2x 16) DDR4 3600 Dual Rank


PS: The only obstacle was that i could install Win11 not from any other source than DVD for whatever reason.

Corsair even has released a new SSD Toolbox:
https://downloads.co...1.2.6.1_WIN.zip



PS: For a Firmware update you need to increase the vertical windows size bcs the button for that is hidden outside the visible area until you increase it so that it shows.
