NVMe External Enclosure

My NVMe SSD

Kingston Digital KC1000 NVMe PCIe 480GB SSD

My three NVMe SSD Enclosures:

ORICO Aluminum, Sabrent USB 3.1 Aluminum Enclosure (Expensive) and ZEXMTE M.2 NVMe USB 3.1 Adapter (Cheapest).

Compare to USB 3.1 Gen 1 5Gbps, USB 3.1 Gen 2 owns 10Gbps bandwidth. To maximum the performance, you should install the NVMe enclosure to USB 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbps Port. Simply install the USB disk using the PC’s TYPE C port.

USB Host Controller

I have 2 motherboards and different USB 3.1 Gen 2 host controllers.

USB Cable

I tried more USB CABLE and got a simple conclusion. First, you must confirm that your USB CABLE is USB 3.0 compliant. Then the shorter the lines, the better. The longer the line means the worse the line signal. Finally, be sure to buy a good quality line.

Conclusion

Finally, The Sabrent USB 3.1 Aluminum Enclosure is the best enclosure for me. Now, I use the case with my AMD chipset and it gets the best performance and works very well.
