    For that matter, it doesn't even show up in BIOS unless I temporarily switch from AHCI to RAID(but without a RAID setup, it just uses the IRST drivers), but shows up in Windows because I also have IRST installed there.
    Morning Cliff.

    I did a clean install. The drive just showed up in BIOS so I didn't need to do anything funky. Should I install IRST?

    Yep always for SSD's. But make sure you get the correct one, as there are different ones for different setups/system/uses.
    This is the one I use, and like you I have a 6700K and multiple SSD's.

    Oh and be sure to turn off Link Power Management in the Performance tab too. SSD's don't need to "sleep" or park their heads(they don't have any).

    Thanks Cliff, you've been a great help.

    EDIT: it says unsupported chipset. This is for the new optane memory which I dont have.

    Interesting because we both have the exact same MB ....and I installed IRST without any issues.

    That worked!

    Only thing is, it doesn't mention the 960, I guess because its NVMe rather than Sata based.

    Correct. NVMe M.2 is PCIe and not SATA.

    18. How does NVM Express compare to SCSI Express or SCSI over PCIe (SOP)? It is premature to compare the technologies, as SOP is still under development in T10. NVMe is expected to provide performance benefits due to its streamlined and focused approach towards the future where memory-like semantics may be used. As explained in another question in this FAQ SCSI Express is a term for a marketing project within the SCSI Trade Association (STA). It is not the name of an interface specification. Therefore it is not possible to compare SCSI Express to NVMe or any other interface specification.

    19. How does NVM Express compare to SATA Express? SATA Express, driven by SATA-IO, defines a host connector that accepts a SATA hard drive, SATA SSD, or PCIe SSD. The PCIe SSD may support either the AHCI software interface or NVM Express. As NVM Express software support spreads in the industry, it is expected that client SSDs will adopt this interface for latency, parallelism, and other benefits that it provides.
