Hi guys, so I just ran a UserBenchmark on my newly built PC and all my parts are running as expected except for the ssd. As you can see from my results, the ssd gets a read/write speed of around 1100-1400 mb/s, when it should be getting at least 2000 mb/s for both read and write. I installed Samsung's Magician software and ran a performance benchmark and the results were around 1500 mb/s for read and write. Maybe the issue has to do with the motherboard? BTW it's a B450 Aorus Pro Wifi. The motherboard had an m.2 thermal guard, and as this was my first time building a pc, so I didn't really know how to install it and couldn't really find too much online at the time. I just winged it and placed it over the ssd and screwed both of them into place. If anyone can help me figure why my ssd is under performing and tell me whether or not I installed the thermal guard correctly or if it even makes a difference, please comment. Thanks!
