Have you already made sure that the mobo's usb 3.0 controller drivers are up to date? Have you tried any previous versions of it?

The read/write speeds have improved but I don't see major improvement in 4K. Do you have more suggestions how to improve it?

I thought I had, but it's possible I missed. Downloading it now. Thanks!

*edit*
Installed updated drivers, same issue. Boot times go from about 15 seconds to around 45. Weird...

Would I have to increase the size of the RamDisk to allow for the above, and if so, is it as simple as increasing it in its configuration utility.

Your on your own unless someone else can help, I never did that before.

It's a Samsung 830 installing to Win 7 (on the machine shown in my sig) if that makes a difference to the answer. I won't be upgrading from a HDD to SSD, in my case it's from an older/misaligned SSD to a new SSD. I'm thinking I should just do a traditional "backup" rather than a ghost, due to the misalignment.

Just follow post 1 and 2, you will be set for a clean install. if you are doing a migration look at post 4.

Nope, Windows is stupid like that. If you find a fix let me know, I will look too, I haven't looked for a fix for it in a while now so there may be one.

Use a different SATA cable?

I will try with a different SATA cable.
Btw. On the screenshot: Is the 4.0 in ATTO the same as 4K on AS SSD? On ATTO those numbers seem good..

Nope, they test different types of data. Not the same. ATTO tests compressible data, AS SSD tests harder and tests compressed data.
