Your motherboard manual will have all the info you need.
After reading your mobo manual, you have intel and asmedia (?) controllers for sata 6gbps. Assuming your board is ASRock Z77 Extreme6.
529
Now, green arrow shows SATA 6gbps ASmedia controller. Red arrow = SATA 6gbps Intel Controller. Black arrows = SATA 3gbps Intel Controller.

It looks like I'm have been using Intel Controllers. I didn't know ASmedia is actually a controller. I was wondering what ASmedia is when I read the manual. I got SSD running on both AHCI mode and Intel controller and the highest read speed I seen is 497 MB/s. Is there any more tuning left for my SSD? I want to break 500 MB/s read speeds.

Last December, I got 128GB for $200, now it's $125. mad.gif I could get 256GB instead.

The prices on these things just keep dropping, jeeze! I returned the one I bought (2nd one) from Amazon, since it was $285, and bought one from Buy.com for $220... then it drops to $200 on NewEgg, lol. I'll have to post my raid benchmarks soon smile.gif

if prices go any lower I may end up with a totally unneeded 3rd one o_O

lol. I hear ya star.

Just picked mine up for 199.99 from Amazon

I don't think it will go any lower though because everything is selling out like crazy. Can't keep dropping prices if demand sky rockets which in turn means a shorter supply. Yay I still remember my economics class.

These price drops transcend supply and demand. They are a gift from above! wink.gif (That's right, Jupiter is looking out for us)

Mine did the same thing. I updated my firmware today to the newest version + used ccleaner/auslogics registry cleaner + windows disk cleanup to get rid all my bsod dumps and it seems it has gone away biggrin.gif

I didn't feel like doing a fresh install although I'm sure that would have fixed it too.

Question M4 owners..Im about to get an M4, the 128GB one

need help with this:

-My mobo is SATA II.....how big will be the performance hit ?? I see that with Sata II the drive average 500/200 speed...how mych can I expect from Sata II ??

-I read somewhere that certain kind of SSD lower a lot the speed when nearly full......that happen with the M4 SSD too ??

-My mobo is kind of old...AM3 one...will I need some kind of BIOS update or something to install the SSD ?? or just "plau and play" ?? (Im planning to do a clean windows install in the SSD)

thanks
