secondly, i have a p6x58d-e with a gskill sata III ssd that was not getting the advertised read/write.

I solved my problem by going to their support forum, where they had their latest firmware posted and specific instructions for optimization of their ssd (Corsair prob has the same)

now my x58 and ssd are performing as they should

hi,

whats your advertised read/write (MAX)

please show me a ATTO disk benchmark showing that...

which controller are you using on the P6X58D-E...

thx for you input

Yeah, what the heck did you do? Lol

Update to a mystery firmware for the Marvell controller? And which one? The 9123/9128 are lower end ones.

Also, do a benchmark and that still won't fix the no trim support issue.

Ok, so Im gonna put the force 3 onto the SATA 2 tonight, I already have installed windows twice since i got it yesterday...

is it the best to just format and re-install windows like normal HDDs within the windows setup disk manager or will there be some utility that im suppose to use to wipe the drive... also you mention earlier "All you need to do is disable the marvell ports, and change the intel to AHCI. Then plug the drive into the intel ones. If you had them in IDE or installed the SSD in IDE mode." how can i put the board into ACHI with the ssd not connected am i suppose to boot with no drives at all then switch to AHCI then put the drive back in then install windows or... ?

Plus you gave a little instruction on how to switch to AHCI mode from Windows Regedit... I followed that and it wa already set to AHCI so... wondering thats just what the Marvell controller calls it regardless of what mode its in...

Just plug it into sata 2 now and make sure the Intel port is set to AHCI. You won't need to reinstall. If you get BSOD's then change to IDE mode and follow the mini guide I posted in this thread again.

I have a guide as well for OS optimization and if you reinstall a guide on that as well is in there.

Guide here:


Also, we will compare results of ATTO after you set it up on SATA 2.
