Can someone mark me down for owning one of those 840 Pro 256GB deals? Mine's on pre-order with Newegg and will be here as soon as they ship 'em out. tongue.gif

I've added the 840 Pro tags to the thread. I hope nobody minds. wink.gif

I'm joining the 830 club! smile.gif I just installed my new 830 128GB. My mobo is only sata 2 though.

It's unbelievable how fast SSD's are compared to my previous HDD install which took a minute and a half to reboot.

Just did a bios flash and reduced my boot time by 8 seconds to 28 seconds on this shiny new samsung. thumb.gif






Can you guys check if I've got my SSD in the correct SATA port, as it's a bit confusing in BIOS.

My motherboard has six SATA ports labelled 0,1,2,3,4,5.

In BIOS, I set it to AHCI before installing the OS, and I set 'OnChip SATA Port 4/5' to 'As SATA Type', and the description of that is "Set SATA Port 4/5 mode as SATA Port 0-3".

In the Samsung manual it suggests having the SSD in the lowest numbered port. I'm assuming that would give the best performance.

Because of the 'OnChip SATA Port 4/5' to 'As SATA Type', I put my 830 in the port actually labelled on the motherboard as port 4. So do I assume that is now port 0, i.e, I'm already in the lowest numbered port as per the 4/5 SATA type setting? But then, if ports 4 and 5 (two actual ports) are simulating ports 0 to 3 (four ports), how can it do that? Or am I completely misunderstanding what it means.

The SSD doesn't work in my physically labelled 0 to 3 ports (it says disk failure in those), and only works in ports 4 and 5. So I have my DVD and 1TB Caviar Black in the physically labelled ports 0 and 1. Is that how it should be? As the PC boots, it shows this order for a couple of seconds:

0000 1TB HDD,
0001 Optiarc DVD
0002 Samsung 830 SSD.

It's like I can't get the SSD to be first in the order, and my OS is installed to the 830. But it does show priority to the samsung as the first hard disk when in BIOS, so maybe it's ok?

Yours Sincerely,

Confused. tongue.gif

Anything I should read up on as far as a new install is concerned on the 830 or is it pretty much set to AHCI and plug and play? Also, should I make sure I have the latest Intel RST drivers downloaded after the install, or are they automatically included as party of Windows updates?

Did you find an answer to the RST driver question?

Today I installed a Samsung 830 256gb drive as the OS/App drive in my PC. Clean Win 7 install with AHCI setting. Everything seems to be working fine, and I selected the Samsung Magician recommended perf settings, and Magician shows the firmware is the latest, so no need to update.

But I keep reading on the web, that I should install/update the RST driver. Do I really need to do this? How do I know if it was done already? Looking for some guidance on this from anyone familiar with RST driver requirements - thanks. (By the way, I installed the SSD on the Sata II ports of my motherboard, because I read the Marvell Sata III ports are not good.)
