Samsung SM951 512GB AHCI M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 80mm (2280) Internal SSD - OEM

Samsung SM951 512GB AHCI M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 80mm (2280) Internal SSD - OEM
Key Specifications

  • Form Factor: M.2 2280 Internal SSD
  • Capacity: 512GB
  • Read Speed: 2150 MB/sec
  • Write Speed: 1500 MB/sec
  • Warranty: 2 Yrs
  • Condition: New


"At this time, Samsung's SM951 is the fastest M.2 product you can buy. Not only is it quicker than existing PCIe-based M.2 drives, but it also delivers performance that compares to all-in-one RAID products like OCZ's RevoDrive and G.Skill's Phoenix Blade."

"Despite the lack of NVMe, there's no arguing about the fact that the SM951 is the fastest client SSD and by a very healthy margin."

 

Please Note We don't recommend secure erasing the SM951, and doing so may void your warranty. Although some have reported being able to successfully secure erase, there has been at least one case reported to us of the drive being rendered useless after several secure erases with Parted Magic.

Extreme Performance for Demanding Applications

The Samsung SM951 512GB AHCI M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 80mm (2280) Internal SSD - OEM is the current world champion of M.2 SSD's, offering incredible performance in a tiny form factor. It provides up to a blistering 2150MB/s read and 1500MB/s write sequential data transfer rates (512GB capacity).

Compatibility

The Samsung SM951 512GB AHCI M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 80mm (2280) Internal SSD - OEM is generally compatible in a wide variety of systems with a free M.2 socket, and can also be installed in systems without an M.2 socket using an M.2 to PCIe adapter. Full operating system boot support is available in both situations, so long as the correct support is built into the system UEFI BIOS code. Since the SM951 does not have it's own option ROM, this is an essential requirement. Below is a general guide but for more specific compatibility information see our monster M.2 compatibility guide, or contact us if you want to check compatibility in your system.

  • Most Z97-based motherboards. Note, some boards have just 2x PCIe lanes on the M.2 socket. Check your system documentation as 4x PCIe lanes are required for maximum performance). In addition, there are a limited number of PCIe lanes available on Z97 systems (maximum 16), so you should consider this when installing a PCIe m.2 SSD, as it will consume some PCIe lanes and limit the number available to your GPU(s).
  • All X99-based motherboards. Check your system documentation for any required M.2 socket switch changes, as 4x PCIe lanes are required for maximum performance
  • All Z170-based motherboards, with some boards even supporting 3 M.2 sockets that can be configured to have multiple M.2 SSD's in RAID. Note, like Z97 systems, there are a limited number of PCIe lanes available on Z170 motherboards. Some references say maximum 16 lanes, other say 20. Some of these lanes are used when M.2 PCIe lanes are installed in the system, which limits the number of PCIe lanes available for a discrete GPU.
  • All 2006-2010 classic model Mac Pro computers (when combined with a standard PCIe adapter)
  • New generation i7 model Intel NUC®
  • Many new generation laptops
  • **NOTE** - the SM951 is not compatible in any Apple MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini, or the current 'cylindrical' model Mac Pro.
  • Please refer to our monster M.2 compatibility guide for the latest information!

Key Features

  • Extreme performance - up to 2150/1500 sequential read/write data transfer rates
  • PCIe 3.0 device, backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0
  • Small M.2 form factor plugs straight into your PCIe-based M.2 socket with no additional cables required

What's in the Box

  • Bare SSD, enclosed in an anti-static bag, custom foam padding and custom box especially made for RamCity to package the XP941/SM951

Warranty

  • 3 year warranty.
  • The Samsung SM951 is an OEM product and the 3-year warranty is not provided to the consumer, rather to us as the systems integrator. For any warranty or support enquiries, please contact RamCity directly.

Really fast PCIe SSD

By: David Cheng on 3 September 2015
I think Samsung did a good job by providing leading edge PCIe (M2) SSD. I purchased this to replace my existing M.2 SATA SSD in my ThinkPad X1. It works well just like X1's factory one. The only issue is the TEMPERATURE. Unlike Lenovo's bundle one, this standard M.2 PCIe Samsung SM951 SSD runs little bit hot on my notebook. Finally I highlighly recommend RamCity since it can provides this OEM SSD for individual purchase (rather than just manufacturers). The only problem I encountered when I purchased online is the shipping address (Only allow 30 characters including space). Most shipping address outside of Australia should have more than 30 characters. This must be improved.

Fantastic Drive, Fantastic Customer Service

By: Zhi Ying Kwa on 16 August 2015
I believe this drive needs no introduction. Fastest SSD on the market you can get your hands on now. It works perfectly with my Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard too, and installing Windows 8.1 through UEFI USB stick was a breeze although some tech knowledge helps in the BIOS configuration. Most importantly I would like to shout out to the guys at RamCity. My first SM951 worked perfectly for quite a while, and Windows 8.1 installed a ton of updates. Until one point, the boot times started to slow and finally it could no longer boot. The drive was no longer even recognised in the BIOS, even after configuring CSM settings to enable UEFI boot. I notified tech support, and Jeff Greene responded to me promptly and within days he sent me an RMA, and I packed my drive and it went back to them. After sending him the proof of shipment, my replacement SM951 was on it's way to me. To my surprise they sent it through DHL at their expense to me, which reached me in about 2 days from shipment. Now, my PC is back up and running perfectly again. Within this period Jeff was helpful and responsive and I would like to commend him for the excellent service rendered. RamCity if you are reading this, do continue to uphold the high customer service standards. Well done.

The DHL shipping was super fast... the drive is super fast. I had zero problems installing & booting Windows 8.1. You can see my poorly shot boot time video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRFyBqKCXkc
