NUC10i3FNH2 and Samsung 860

Good afternoon, why does the ssd drive operate at 3 Gbps ?

Immediately after reboot 6 Gbps, after 1 minute 3 Gbps? 

All drivers are installed, the disk in another computer is working correctly!

I've already met similar topics here...

But this disk is definitely working properly ...

1. Why you have the Intel Optane Memory and Storage Management application installed?  Are you using Optane acceleration?

2. What is the SATA mode in BIOS settings (Advanced > Devices > Sata)?

1. I have 2 ssd disks, I wanted to use RAID-0, 2.5 ssd and m.2, both new samsung 860 PRO

I do not use Optane.

2. AHCI

I also have 10 NUC10i3FNH2 and 20 ssd...everything is the same everywhere

After installation RAID - 0 win 10 PRO it works incorrectly, after that i deleted RAID и and began to test disks.

M.2 work right 

2.5 not

I tested 2.5 Kinsgton drives  work right.

Samsung updated to the latest firmware

Just in case, can you test this 2.5" drive on another PC or NUC? There was a report previously of a bad SATA cable and it would be good to ensure that it is truly the drive.

Back to previous comments, Leon was asking because, if you are going to use RAID but not Optane, you should be installing the standard RST package, not the Optane package.

Disk tested in NUC8i3, works correctly.

I have 10 pieces NUC10i3, I studied all possible previous cases, it's not about the cable, it's about the disk Samsung 860. 

The problem will not be solved RMA.

 

The same problem, 2 disks do not work correctly:

https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-NUCs/Any-known-issues-when-running-both-M-2-and-SATA-SSDs-in-a-...

 

If not put Optane, If you do not put the second disc on record, it will have a very low speed ... as in the post above ...

Optane contains RST dirivers, аnd only after installation disk 2.5 work on sata 2 correctly.

No, not true. In that discussion, the problem was caused by a damaged SATA cable that failed to transfer data successfully at higher transfer speeds. This has nothing to do with the use of two drives or RST.

If you want to do only RAID, you use the RST package. If you want to do Optane Acceleration, you use the Optane package. These are uniquely separate; the design of the NUCs (i.e. having only one M.2 socket) precludes the possibility of doing both RAID and Optane Acceleration. You say you just want to do RAID, then you want just the RST package. This streamlines the components to just what you need to support RAID. Using the Optane package in this case is an unnecessary complication.

Hi @PROlite 

Follow the SATA (AHCI) RAID procedure in RAID Setup Procedure for Intel® NUC Kits

However if your problem is with Samsung 860 SSD, please take into consideration that this SSD is not validated by Intel for your NUC. So, better use a drive listed on this list.
