Dell G7 Nvme SSD upgrade help needed

Hi everyone, Hoping someone here can help. I have a G7 GTX 1060 with 16 GB RAM with BIOS 1.3. I upgraded from the standard SATA SSD to a HP NVME SSD EX920 512 GB. I've changed the BIOS to ACHI, did multiple clean install of Windows, but can't really get the 3000mb sequential read promised. On average it's 1700 mb, best about 2000. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if I'm expecting too much. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Dell G7 Nvme SSD upgrade help needed

This model has X2 PCI-E instead of X4 for the NVME slot so you are getting what you can. Even worse the thunderbolt 3 port cannot be used to power the laptop. "You have attached a power adapter to a port that does not accept power."

I purchased a Dell G7 15 (7588) Feb 22, 2019.

Intel six-core Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 128GB solid-state boot drive and a traditional 1TB hard drive.  $1099 at best buy.

The first thing I did was replace the 128 SSD with a 1 TB 970 EVO.

15.6-inch anti-glare full-HD (1920x1080) IPS-technology display, plus an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 processor with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM and Max-Q
