    UPDATED Feb.6th 2018
    =========================================================
    I am seeing reports on the Samsung Forums that the new 4Bxxxxx Firmware is not working
    for everyone or only works for a few days and then the problems come back ,
    so proceed with caution.

    ===========================================================
    Thanks for this update Kbird, I have never updated the bios for my 960 Pro, still on older one 2xxx :) No intentions of upgrading at this time either.

    I updated my spare 960Pro from 2xxx to the latest version 4xxx. Works just fine with no freezes or anything else. It's the 500GB version not the 1 TB some people are having trouble with. Can't say if this newer firmware has improved the performance or not as I don't bother to bench mark any of my drives. Tried the drive in both of my machines and works fine.

    Sorry for being lazy.

    I have 960 EVO on firmware 2xxxx.

    Is it okay / recommended for me to update firmware?

    I lost touch with what is okay and what is still dicey.

    I have same one and not going to flash it unless I'm sure of any gains with new BIOS.

    I agree with Mike, I have the Pro on 2xxxx and have no intentions of updating my firmware either. :) Choice is of course the user.

    There is no benefit at this point so I would not risk it .....some users with the Pro are still having issues with their Drives on 4xxxx. but on a whole it seems better.

    My Speed issues were because I set the Source Tuner Clock in the Bios manually to the specified Speed instead of leaving it on Auto , Magician 5.2 says it is faster now than i ever saw it but I am not 100% convinced it is right since AS SSD Bench doesn't agree with the Speed in 5.2

    5.2 won't even tell me what Bios my EVO needs upgrading too , just says I need an update , so I won't be doing it while there are questions on the 3.xxx and 4.xxx bios's as all is well currently.

    Thanks Kbird, CountMike and OldMike65.

    I'll set a reminder to investigate this again in another month.

    Can you explain some more about "Source Tuner Clock in the Bios" ?

    I Really don't know any of the Technical Ins and Outs , I happened to mention my Issue on the OCN Asus X99 Forum and one of the Guys mentioned while having issues with his Win7/Win10 Dualboot and playing with settings, he noticed his PCIe Gen speed drop too, if the Source Tuner was set to anything other than Auto. The Bios recommends 60db for 100mhz FSB , so that was what I had been setting , so I set Auto and weeks of playing with other settings and different Bios's was ended :)

    Oh, that looks like BCLK multiplier/devider, we don't have that on Ryzen platform.
