Looks about right, especially on the write. So much more than me.

Hi Guys & Gals of OCN

So got a new pc build that was recently completed and i need to check with you all if these benchmarks are right with my current spec, From what iv read i should be getting a better read speed, have a look and let me know. Thanks all

Plug your drive into the native intel SATA 6Gb/s port.

I have been using a 128 GB Samsung 830 for almost a year with an ASUS P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1. The 830 is connected to a native P67 6.0 gray Gb/s port. There are devices connected to the 3.0 Gb/s controller but nothing else is connected to the 6.0 Gb/s controller. The Marvel 6.0 Gb/s controller is disabled. Op system is 64 bit W67, clean install when installed 830 last January. CPU is a i7 2600k overclocked to 4327 GHz (it is stable at about 4.5 but intentionally run slower for more stability margin and lower temps).

Why then are my bench marks below so dismal?

Ran bench marks after reboot and in safe mode with no real difference.

Any suggestions about something I might be missing would be appreciated.

For get about the other benchmarks, something isn't right with your 830 SSD, have you checked the SATA cables to make sure your using a 6Gbps cables? What are your settings in BIOS for SATA configuration? Should set to AHCI and disable S.M.A.R.T.

Why in the damned world would you disable S.M.A.R.T.?! kookoo.gif SSD fails reliably in a predictable way and without S.M.A.R.T. you may not know until it's very late. (Also, S.M.A.R.T. gives you how much data was written, among other useful infos which helps troubleshooting SSD)

Nothing personal, but disabling SMART is like "Oh, my left arm and chest hurts but I'm just going to ignore the pain"

Smart was originally designed for HDD, not SSD's. SMART is able to predict less than 50% of impending hard drive failures. SSD's usually just croak instantly. There is no coming back. No fix, just dead. Even though statistically SSD is more secure and stable than a hard drive I always tell my friends to BACKUP their data when using an SSD as failure means total loss most of the time.

Sources for "instant croak"?
My sources says the reverse. Being blind to the signs of degradation doesn't make them non-existant (especially if one disables SMART).

Of course, a dead SSD is dead. However, loss in speed is generally an indication that the chips are wearing out, and this is where SMART becomes useful. You can see how much times it failed, how many "full drives" you wrote (MWI and wear leveling/cycles, etc).
Also, samsung 830/840 SSD's are one of the most long-lasting consumer drives, and they are proven to fail predictably.
