    I installed Samsung NVMe Driver v3.3.0.2003 instead of using Microsoft Driver v10.0.19041.1.
    Is this OK? By the way. It changed my Disk order around.

    That looks OK, is it now last disk in the list ?

    1 PC has 10G NIC on motherboard. 3 PCs have 10G PCIe NICs installed (Aquantia, ASUS XG-C100C, Rosewill). 2 PCs have 2.55g NIC on motherboard.

    My PC has the 10G NIC onboard (MSI X299 Creator). The test PC Uses the Aquantia PCIe card (MSI X299 XPower Gaming AC). In both cases I uninstalled the drivers, and on Mine I also disabled the NIC in the BIOS.

    TEST PC: Run tests with 10G NIC installed and operational, Run tests with 10G NIC no Drivers installed: Run tests with 10G NIC disabled in BIOS; Run tests with 10G NIC removed. All Same results.

    MY PC: Same as above except last step - can't remove the NIC from the motherboard :)

    Is there some known issue with 10G LAN adapters causing problems with SSDs?

    There's no connection between those two. They run on different controllers, chips and circuits.

    Same here although no change in BIOS.

    So, it is a Windows thing?
    I wish Microsoft would fix it or make it configurable.

    I wish too but they are not listed by importance but by position in BIOS. M.2 NVME drives are controlled by CPU. PCIe or chipset while others are controlled by SATA controllers.
    SATA are part of very old IDE/SCSI standards while M,2 are newcomers.

    I wouldn't have thought that NICs would have had any bearing on SSD performance. I could imagine if I'd over used my PCIe lanes, but that's not the case. But krzemien mentioned the NICs a couple of times and not being an expert in this field I thought perhaps their might be some substance to the references.

    Surely external, PCIe NIC (so not the one on the MoBo) would have an impact here where number of available PCIe lanes is concerned? I might be wrong though...?

    It would be only one lane, they are x1.
