Here are my usb3 bench marks on a 6 year old mb . The type of drive you use wiil effect speeds I guess.

Is this an overclocked machine?  I don't overclock my machine.  I tested a 16GB Sandisk Cruzer Glide, the package said it was a USB3.  Could it be I got a crappy USB3 drive, or is it that my USB3 is not set up properly on my machine?

I got it from Newegg.  Taking another look at it, it turns out that I did get the Gen3 x4 version...  So, I'm good in that department.  Maybe there's something about it that makes it more expensive than other M.2 drives...  For example, I've learned that there are M.2 drives that are really just SATA drives, and then there are the M.2 NVMe (NeVer Me - LOL) which are the ones that are connected to the PCIe lanes.  Maybe that's why you've seen a price difference.  Or it could be because it's 2TB?


Thanks for giving me your thoughts on the numbers, ir_cow.

This is the last chipset X99 that supports Win7, and the CPU, Broadwell, is the last Intel CPU that supports Win7.  But I'll have another look in the BIOS, tomorrow.


Really appreciate you guys' help.  Thanks.  I'll let you know tomorrow how it looks.

I'm having trouble using the Internet, this morning.  I'm tired.  Sorry for all of the double posts and other weird mistakes.
