You need to look in BIOS under SATA or something similarly named. It might be IDE, AHCI or RAID mode typically. For a single drive it's best to use AHCI.

BUT if you see you are running in IDE mode, simply switching to AHCI will cause Blue Screen during Windows boot. So before switching you need to go back to Windows and do these steps:

Then go to BIOS and change to AHCI. Now Windows will operate in AHCI. Also get latest Intel drivers (provided you are using Intel controller - and you should!). Get the driver here - Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.

an easy way to check is fire up AS SSD ...look at 3rd line down on left...it will tell you what mode your in. You don't have to run it...again running benchmarks will degrade ssd especialy AS SSD. That comes straight from ocz tech....

OP: Try a different benchmark like AS SSD and post some results. Are you in SATA2 or SATA3 ports ? Have you done all the tweaks ? Did the registry fix ?

Even in SATA2 you should be getting at least 270-280mb/s or higher Read speeds.
i have tried the AS SSD and i'm getting like 210mb/s read but like 35mb/s write...... idk what registry fix is and all the tweaks. i am in sata3 port right now

The read speed looks a little better and probably close to what you should be getting at least, but the write speed is crazy low.

All I can suggest is checking out this list of things to do and see if it helps any.
http://www.overclock.net/ssd/929553-...p-secrets.html

I'm still fairly new to SSD's myself, but I learned a lot from others pretty quickly. You can find a lot of help around here just searching around, that link is a good start. Best of luck, I hope you get it figured out.

If you could post your AS SSD screenshot here, it would be very useful.

Wow, that's some low score you got there. But according to the screenshot, you got everything right. You are in AHCI mode in BIOS. Your are hooked to Intel port and you got latest Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver. Is this correct? Are you on SATA 6Gb/s or SATA 3Gb/s port by the way?

Edit: Might consider updating firmware. But as I can see on OCZ website in firmware section "This OCZ Toolbox does not work with Intel RST 10 series drivers" so maybe hold on before updating RST and flash firmware first. Dunno. Never used OCZ so maybe someone with more experience can suggest something.

Can you try uninstalling the Intel Rapid Store and just test with the default microsoft drivers? I got horrible results when i tried those Intel drivers with my drive.
