    Kbird after reading the Samsung site I'm more confused. Appears EVO doesn't have issue that PRO has.

    I was likely on wrong, could you supply link to specific thread on their site. Would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    *** PLEASE VISIT SAMSUNG to ascertain if YOUR MODEL is effected or not. SAMSUNG has now confirmed an issue on the 960 Pro NVME Drives and is Promising a Firmware Fix on 29th Jan. However there are numerous reports of the 3B7Qxxxx Firmware causing issues on the 960 EVO too.

    The Issue seems to be Mostly with Older NVME 960 Pro and EVO Drives..... but please check for yourself here :

    Re: Slowdown in 960 PRO SSDs after the new firmware update (Version: 3B6QCXP7)


    The issue started in early December and we were on top of it immediately. After collecting error logs and details the first few days, Samsung pinpointed the issue and started working on a fix, which will be releasing the week of the 29th. So I do not understand your comment of us not taking responsibility until months later.


    The fw issue on the 960 Pro only causes brief slowdowns. If you are having bluescreens, then the issue is unrelated and you might just have a bad drive. If you are in the US, please contact our support team via the 1-800-samsung number, or via email.



    Samsung has now stopped Magician from Downloading to the 960 Pro according to the Forum Moderator SamsungDave

    The magician program won't cause any issues. The fw update is not available for the 960 Pro.

    I wonder if the problems are caused only by certain CPUs or chipsets

    Just to note, this 960 EVO was only installed when I built my Coffee Lake system, and after I got the system setup and Magician installed(in the beginning of December 2017), it upgraded the firmware to the 3B version.

    Used default settings, and no it didn't freeze up either:
