MX300 1 TB M.2 - Great SSD

I bought the MX300 1 TB M.2 back in Jan of this year, and have had great success with the drive.  The storage software has been nice keeping the firmware and SSD running at max.  I was wondering what kind of speeds everyone else is getting with their MX300 M.2.   I used the AS SSD Benchmarker and Disk Mark for my testing.

Nice! What caching software are you using?  Or is that just using Momentum?

Crucial Software 10% OP Overprovision

ASUS ROG Ram Cache 4 GB on the SSD

 

Have been enjoying the speed.  The Ram Cache only seems to work on Strix and ROG motherboards.

Tried this with a samsung 850 Pro and didn't even come close to these results so I am wondering why it worked with the MX300, but not the 850 Pro.

Momentum is a RAM cache that you can turn on/off with Crucial Storage Executive tool and it works with Crucial drives only.
