Default Cluster size for SSD

Curious if everyone defaults to 4k or has tried other sizes. I have seen some people say 64k is better?

My System Specs


I have found fro bigger file transfer that 64 and 128 give the best results but i normally just run 64 cause overall it gives the best performance adn ya i did test it like 2 years.

The probably with cluster size is the minimum file size. even tho it is better, you would be losing space.
