If it is yoru boot device and other drives, roms are on your sata there could be something else causing a problem including but not limited to your sata interface cable. Unhook everything no neccessary to test and try swapping your sata cable.

Also make sure you have the latest sata chipset drivers installed.

Latest AMD chipset drivers are installed with latest BIOS revision. I do have a Samsung F3 hooked up as storage. I will disconnect and see if it helps.

Try plugging it on another/different sata port

Try it also with another pc/mac/laptop and see if the result is similar

Sounds like your motherboard has problems

I'm not convinced that the motherboard is the problem. My Samsung F3 benches just fine on the same motherboard.

Probably shouldn't be using the computer while it benches but the scores are a far cry from yours. Updated firmware? Tried a secure wipe?

edit: maybe i'm using an outdated benchmark brb
edit: got weird results on sequential writes but generally the same performance

edit: better results again. didn't really do anything differently so go figure

I'm running the same firmware as you, D110225a. Seems like the write speeds on these drives are pretty bad considering they're rated at 150 MB/s.

Have you enabled all write caching?

Make sure both are ticked in the device manager for the best performance.

Um, so yeah. This did it. Made performance increase by a lot. I forgot I turned this off after reading a SSD tweak guide. Thanks and repped!
