Wierd SSD results after motherboard upgrade.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded my motherboard from a ASRock N7AD-SLI to a P9x79 Pro but im getting some slightly odd results with the ssd after the upgrade.

I did some ssd benchmarks on the old motherboard but i dont have the results for them. I do remeber though that windows 7 would pretty much boot as soon as the logo appeared and continued to run smoothly, whereas with the new motherboard it can take 5 to 10 seconds after the logo appears for it to boot despite me using the intel 6gb sata connections (I have used the marvel 6gb and also the standard 3gb connection with the same results). Also the first security prompt takes a while to load. After this though the drives are fine and run smoothly. Its just odd that they seem so slow to start up whereas on the old motherboard they didnt.

Im running 2x OCZ Agility 3 in Raid 0 and they are used as the boot drive. These are the results from HD Tune.

I understand that running HDTune on an OS drive can cause spikes and such but should it really look like that?

Thanks for any help, its appreciated.

You shouldn't use HDTune in general to bench SSDs, it isn't that great or helpful for comparisons, use ATTO and AS SSD.

Ive run AS SSD to benchmark it and these are the results. The write speeds seem a little low on some tests aswell as the access times are quite high? Windows itself still boots relatively slow to what it should do.

Looks average to me. The pic on the left is two Agility 3's in RAID 0 on SATA 6Gb/s.

Run ATTO and you will see 1GB/s speeds.

Hm ok. I did run the ATTO benchmark and it did get pretty close to the 1gb/s you said (was just under 900mb/s). So the slowness of startup and the security prompts most likely a bad windows install then?

Maybe, you could look over my optimization guide or disable a lot of your start up items.
