With the downloaded images for UHD-4.0 I saw a couple of things:

1) The CPU clock speed is set for speed grade 1 parts, not speed grade 3.
2) UHD-4.0 hangs after a while at higher data rates, I've also seen this
on a b200.

If there are fixes for these issues, you might get a bit more transfer
rate. Not sure it will get you the speed you need though.
