Sequential write speeds of up to 495 MB/s

Andres - what motherboard are you running?  Does it have a SATAIII controller, and if so are you connected to the SATAIII controller?

 

Also, be advised that advertised read and write speeds are based on a fresh SSD with nothing installed on it.  On yours you already have 59% of your free space utilized.

 

"5" = number of test runs 

"1000MB" = test size

Have you configured your drive in the BIOS to run in SATA mode with AHCI?

Another good thing to check EF.  Thanks.

Guys yes its in AHCI Mode.

You sure you're connected to one of the SATA 6G/bs ports?

 

Are you running off of the Intel RST driver or the standard Microsoft AHCI driver?

 

Are you using the SATA 6G/bs cable or an older 3G/bs cable?

big picture in that link you can see, light blue is SATA3 1G-4G

white is sata 6G1-2

navy blue is sata 6g but is like only  for data. (Anyways i tried them all.. and ran bench with each of them)

 

the white-black cable is teh 6gb/s one and is the cable that i plugged the ssd

i dont know what u mean with RST driver or stand microsoft ahci driver.

Ahci is set on BIOS..

 

Thanks for replying back im kinda frustrated..

When you installed Windows (with AHCI enabled in the BIOS) it installed the standard Microsoft AHCI driver.  Unless you installed the Intel RST driver from the m/b driver installation disk, or downloaded directly from Intel's website and installed, then you are still running the standard Microsoft AHCI driver.  Nothing necessarily wrong with that since the MAHCI driver works fine in most situations.  However, you might want to determine which storage controller driver you're using - and then try the other.

 

My guess is that since you don't know there is a difference that you are probably running the MAHCI driver.  In which case giving the Intel RST driver a test run would probably be worth your effort.  After installing the Intel RST driver there are a couple options for improving your disk performance.

wevs - He's definitely plugged into SATA III - he wouldn't be getting anything over ~280MB/s on SATA II.  It's hard to say exactly what's going on here :dunno:

 

OP - I would suggest you look carefully through your BIOS and make sure all drive controllers are set to AHCI.  If your SSD is running on a Marvell controller (or one separate from the SATA II controller) it may have its own IDE/AHCI settings page.  I have the older version of that MB, and I have two different places to set AHCI.  Just a thought.

There is nothing wrong with your settings..

Driver re-installation? May be you should give it a try..

But I'm not sure what is going on in this case.

Some specific things you can try and then re-run your benchmarks using Crystal Diskmark, AS SSD and Atto.

 

In BIOS make the following changes;

 

CPU Power Management Configuration Page

1. Enhanced Intel Speed Step Technology = disabled for now

2. CPU C3 = disabled

3. CPU C6 = disabled

 

In Windows make the following change;

Power Plan = High performance
