Please help about OCZ Agility 3 60gb!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hello everyone. i want to buy OCZ Agility 3 60gb ( 525/475mb/s) for my OS.

my mobo is ASUS P6X58D PREMIUM, and it has 2 sata III ports, but not native sata III ports with 6gb/s!!! Instead of that, these ports are with Marvel 9123 controller which doesnt support full sata III transfer speed over it!

I wonder what is the maximum transfer speed over this two ports with Marvel controller on my mobo? I heard it is about 350-400mb/s...

My question is: Will I loose much of permormance of this ssd(525/475 mb/s). considering that my mobo sata III ports cant reach that transfer speed?


p.s. I know also that this speed 525/475mb/s is transfer speed in ATTO program of incompresible data....and SF2200 reach that speed only in this sitaution---which is far from real work with data....

You shouldn't be using Marvell controller in any case, regardless of speed. The problem with Marvell is that it doesn't support TRIM which is an important feature to keep the SSD performance up (you need Windows 7 for TRIM). Plus, Marvell drivers can be buggy. Lastly, the fact that it is not native already means that it can be slower in some ways (and it is, in terms of 4K speeds - which is most useful in SSD).

Overall, just use native Intel SATA II port together with the latest RST drivers - Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.

Crucial, Intel, OCZ are the most recommended brands. Get the cheapest at the size that you need.
