Manual throttling of M.2 PCIe SSD

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing frequent kernel panics with the RockPro64 board and assume it could be a power consumption issue with the SSD (PCIe NVMe M.2). I tested a variety of different SSDs, with the Cruzial P1 being the most reliable.

 

Is it possible to manually throttle an SSD within Armbian, forcing it to consume less power?

In my case, peak performance is not really important. This would allow me to further validate my thesis.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I don't know how to throttle it down. Maybe there's a way to make it run at an older spec. 
Are you checking your voltages and amperage to your board? On USB ports? You could see if the voltage drops down when in high use. 
Maybe your could try doing slow transfer from a usb2 device for a long time. And then try doing the same with fast transfer speeds. 
Thank you for being a supporter.
