Slow Plot speed Corsair MP600 Pro

I have 3 machines ploting and encounter slow plot speed on one of them.
I am lost as old PCs perform better than new dedicated plot machine.

dedicated plot machine:
i7-7700K 4,7GHz
32GB 3200Mhz Gskill ram
2TB Corsair MP600 Pro
120GB SSD for os

gaming PC:
i7-6700 3,9GHz
32GB 2400MHz ram
1TB 970 Evo(os+plot temp)

gaming laptop
i7-7700HQ 2,8GHz
32GB 2400Mhz
1TB toshiba nvme(os+plot)

PC and laptop runs windows, 3 plots, 20min stagger with swar manager.
PC makes plots in 7h~, usually <7h, laptop makes plots in 7,5h-8h
Dedicated have 7 plots sheduled, 20min stagger in swar, but rarely run more than 5 as phase 1 takes 4h~ Dedicated machine makes plots in 10h solo 12h stagger.
tested also on debian and results were even worse.

Phase 1 on gaming takes 2:45~ and on dedicated 4h~

I am lost what is causing the slowness.
Any advice?

That’s just weird. Have you tried running some benchmarks and memtest, just too see if that turn up any problems.
Is the m.2 slot with the MP600 running in Sata-mode for some odd Intel Pcie reason?

Dunno just trowing some ideas out there

RAM is fine checked with memtest
Crystal Disk Mark results in 3500/3500 read/write with should be more than enough.
On gaming PC i have 3000/2500 in CDM.

I start thinking its not the disk
I have PRTG monitoring agent on all of them:
1h Average disk read:1 402 Mbit/s
1h average disk write:1 301 Mbit/s
1h average disk read:2 141 Mbit/s
1h average disk write:2 102 Mbit/s
So Corsair is working faster than evo.
Im lost even more.

Solved it!
CPU was thermal thortling!
Installed water AIO on CPU and now have temp of 65C.
7 plots, stagger 20min, 3 in phase 1, average plot time 7:30.
