Low SSD Speeds?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got a OCZ Agility III 120GB SSD to use as a boot drive. I have it plugged into one of the two 6Gb SATA ports on my mobo, and I am running in AHCI mode. Here is my current speeds from ATTO bench, and it seems low to me.



Could it be that the Marvell controller on my board isn't good enough? Did I screw something up in the configuration? Or is this normal?

Unfortunately the Rampage III Extreme only has 2 Marvell SATA3 ports, the rest are SATA2 ports. Its not a very new board so I guess I should be happy it has SATA3 at all.

I would still update to the latest marvell drivers or what ever BIOS update ASUS provides. I have an 120GB Agility 3 and I'm getting slightly better speeds than that. OCZ just released new firmware recently also.

just from my recent experience you should boot from your windows install disc>repair>install drivers, and choose the marvell ahci drivers you obtain or achi drivers for the sataii ports. My raid set together doesnt even surpass the sataII maximum speed on their sataIII ports so really I wouldnt even care if I put these onto a sataII port anyway.
