I have a MSI Z590-a Pro motherboard with Intel i7-11700K cpu. I have 3 Samsung ssd's installed.
Slot 1 (nvme) 980 Pro for operating system
Slot 2 (sata) 980 for personal files
Slot 3 (sata) 980 f9r games
When I run User Benchmark, it shows all 3 underperforming. Does using all 3 m.2 slots slow down performance.
