I am running two M.2 960 pro drives in a RAID config on my P51 - the Samsung magician did not recognize my array. I am currently using HWinfo64 and all info is available.

My experience has been that magician only works with retail drives

I successfully used the magician software without issue prior to the RAID set on my 960, i see no reason it wouldn't work with a 961 in a singular drive scenario. But i have not tested the 961 to say with certainty.

Drive optimization should occur at the firmware level, no O/S specific software should have effect on much more than monitoring.
