Do you have the Windows Indexing service disabled? May sound strange, but I've seen that happen in Disk Management when the Indexing service is not running.

You should be able to shrink a volume on any drive, OS or not, and with the Magician software. Are you using the Magician 4.0 software?

You might want to try partition magic though, it may compensate for that situation.

Partition Magic works fine in this case - at least it did for me.

I have the regular 840 120gb and I'm happy with it even though my mobo is a limiting factor I think.



Have the Asus P6X58D-E which does have 2 SATA III 6 gb/s slots, but they are the Marvell and not the regular ones. And because it's on Marvell it doesn't show up on the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software. Still, do you think there's anyway to get around 500mb/s write speed?

thats because it is a marvell port which is not the native intel chipset. Intel does not support third party controllers and their controllers together.

Yea, get 4-5 of those and RAID 0.

no.... but i wouldnt worry, seq speeds are good for transfering data between devices (where you see 500Mbps). hence using sata 2 wont hinder you in other performance eg boot times.

or this

I have a friend with a similar mobo. He says he gets better results using IRST on an Intel 3Gb/S port than a Marvell 6 Gb/S port. It may be worth a try.

Sorry, I meant read speed. I tried the 3gb/s slot and the score was around the same except the Seq read speed was around 250 and the other values were a little better. This machine is primarily for gaming, I thought read speed was what affected that the most no?

My results...little low or?

Has anyone successfully updated the firmware on Samsung 840 Pro's using a bootable CD method? I have a Raid0 setup and I am lazy redface.gif to destroy it and install windows on a single drive to update the firmwares.

I've never done that but the secure erase via the bootable USB drive option worked fine, and I would think the FW update would work fine as well. I'd hardly call it lazy wanting to bypass installing Windows, etc, and creating a RAID volume again, for a 30 second FW update.

I was able to do the secure erase in RAID mode, although I did not have the 840 Pro's in a RAID array.

One thing you might encounter using the CD or USB drive FW update method is the UI will appear as an unreadable mess when using a video card (it was fine using the Intel IGP!) If that happens, you can exit the UI and run the FW update from the DOS command line. That is described in the Troubleshooting section of the Magician's Help option. I had to use the DOS command line method, which actually loads a font apparently, and it worked fine.
