Default Corsair MP500 awful slow ?

Fresh Windows 10 64-bit install ... this is the speed I'm getting out of my brand new Corsair MP500 M.2 SSD ...

Is Write Cache enabled on the drive?
Try rerunning the test without background processes/applications doing something in the background e.g. copying files.

Also what are the temps like? I'd suggest downloading Corsair Link or the Corsair SSD Toolbox to view the temperature of the drive.

Write Cache is enabled. Temperature is around 70 on average browsing the web and doing some light tasks. Jumps to 80-82 during the benchmark.

According to the review below, the 80+ is when the drive starts throttling.

Depending on the location of the drive, it will be best to have some airflow over it.
