Just bough a 480GB ADATA SU650 and something doesn't seem alright with it. I wasn't expecting it to be as fast or faster than my other 850 EVO but the speeds I am getting are even below what my HDD does. Then I noticed that the temperature of the drive is really high , around 60-64c. It just gradually gets to that temperature whether or not I even use the drive and I suspect the low performance I am getting is because the drive is throttling. The SSD is right in front of a case fan and there is absolutely no reason for it to get that hot.

So , my question is , is there something that can be done or should I just return it ?

Return it IMO. Can you post a HDtune screen? Wanna see if the performance is bad from the beginning or does it slowly degrade overtime. I was actually interested in picking up one of those but I found some reviews and it looks like the drive has performance issues when copying large amounts of data, can be related to your issue.

My 850 pro's sit at 30 degrees. +60 is way too hot for a sata ssd.

I'd just get a refund to be frank,it seems like this drive is very limited. Look for WDS500G2B0A, that's an excellent price/performance drive.

+1 to that but most sata ssds will handle 60c anything above that is a cause for concern though.

60c may not be much for a drive under load but this stays at 60c all the time , even after a cold boot. Last CrystalMark test showed 170mb/s for sequential read and I didn't even bothered to let it finish , I just tried a large file transfer across the two drives and I get some abysmal speed in the order of a few mb/s , it's not that the drive has poor performance it seems outright broken, temp sensor is probably bust and makes the drive throttle. Looks like I have to return it , a rather unpleasant experience with ADATA SSDs.

60-64C is not hot at all. Drives don't throttle till 90C+. You didn't actually post the performance you're getting but those ADATA drives are slow anyway.

It is for a sata drive,especially if he's getting such crap performance. 60 is inexcusable for such low numbers, look at mine, sits at 29 degrees under stress, just 2 degrees abovr the other 256 pro I have that is sitting at 27 in idle.

Faulty. Return it for refund and get a better brand such as Samsung.

Another odd thing is that the drive didn't show up first time I formatted it , it only showed up after a second time I did that. Thought nothing about it but I guess it was a sign something's wrong with it.

those ADATA drives are slow anyway.
Every review I saw for this drive shows at least 500 mb/s read speed and I am getting a third of that , as slow as these drives may be that's abnormally slow.

Mod it with a fansink or return it, bet anything it really doesn't use the outer case as a heatsink...

Like I said the thing is right in front of a case fan running at max RPM , and it gets to 64c doing nothing. The drive is definitely throttling as I noticed that the speeds get gradually worse as temperature goes up. Going to buy a WD maybe I'll have better luck with it , thanks everyone for the help.

You can still try your luck with a replacement for the su650, but I'd just leave it and get a wd blue 3d. make sure your get the 2017 version cause it's confusing. Check the number, it's supposed to have WDS500G2B0A not WDS500G1B0A, same goes for different size (WDS250G2B0A vs WDS250G1B0A). The new one has 64-layer bics TLC, it's just as good as what they put on 860/970 evo but a bit less pricey.

Yeah RMA that ADATA it is a notoriously horrible drive! Runs HOT and performance issues in way too many configs. I think eidairaman1 is correct in that the drive is faulty and not making the correct contacts under its hood. Also mentioned is the WD blue 5002B0A is a very solid dependable SSD as is the 5002B0B which is the very same drive in the M.2 platform both are an additional $30 more than the Scorching ADATA..... But i would advise an RMA for the crapola drive ADATA. RMA it for refund or store credit to be used for a real replacement. Good luck!

Daft question at this point, but do you have a fan or anything in front of any of your SSDs or SATA drives? :)

Daft question at this point, but do you have a fan or anything in front of any of your SSDs or SATA drives? :)
Said it twice , did you read my first post ?

@Vya Domus : If your in US see Newegg: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6ZP4RF0948

MX300 is a good drive, I have several.
Not in the US, thing is the drive wasn't even that cheap from where I bought it compared to others and there I was thinking It can't be crap.

But i would advise an RMA for the crapola drive ADATA. RMA it for refund or store credit to be used for a real replacement. Good luck!
Fortunately I can just return and not bother with RMA.

Like I said the thing is right in front of a case fan running at max RPM , and it gets to 64c doing nothing. The drive is definitely throttling as I noticed that the speeds get gradually worse as temperature goes up. Going to buy a WD maybe I'll have better luck with it , thanks everyone for the help.
Yeah send it back, get a crucial mx300.

Nice that a return is an option! Well i thought a little along the same lines....ADATA a company that that gained fame and popularity when it managed to make cheap ram that was overclocking like MAD, shit was the best for a minute...now i can't even remember what that ram was lol...but i was starting to think too that they were in a new form of REALLY good things but like the rest of the manufactures that have done this same call to fame it is never the case.....except for DFI who then managed to just disappear from the enthusiast market all together to fade back into OEM production....glad it's sorted tho.
