Problem with SATA III on EVGA X58 Classified3 and SSD Vertex3

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I recently bought a EVGA X58 Motherboard Classified3 (141-GT-E770-A1) waiting for my SSD OCZ Vertex 3 worked perfectly with his speed, but Oh! disappointment, that when using SATA III ports (controller MARVELL 88SE91xx), not working properly because the speeds I got using ATTO Bench32, As SSD, Crystal Disk Mark, were between 220MB / s to 250MB / s maximum, even amounted to SATA II, not what is wrong?

I have updated my firmware to the latest SSD v2.22, also Marvell 91xx SATA ports 6G Controller (1.2.0.1020), Marvell's firmware (2.2.0.1118) version of the BIOS of the motherboard is (1.0.0.1029 ), everything else works perfect, only problem is that I do not get speeds of 500 MB/s or 450MB/s I'd wish.

I recommend updating the firmware MARVELL chipset?, And how could it?, I have Windows 7 64bit, Core i7-960 3.2GHz, 12GB DDR3. as they attempt to use the updater MARVELL but does not work, this is the link: http://www.station-drivers.com/page/marvell.htm (Marvell MV-91xx (88SE91xx) Ahci/Raid Controller (PCI\VEN_1B4B&DEV_90xx&CC_ & PCI\VEN_1B4B&DEV_91xx&CC_ )

Or is that these ports do not work in reality as they say, then EVGA had a bad option to choose
for Marvell SATA III?

Or is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks

First, I assume you have the correct offset for your SSD? This can be checked with AS SSD.

Second, the Marvell controllers are usually much slower than Intel's native controllers. Your SSD is rated for 500 MB/s on a native Intel or AMD 6Gbps port, but not on a port with a Marvell controller. The EVGA Classified motherboard is a gread board, but if those speeds are unacceptable, you could buy a PCI-E Sata III (6Gbps) controller card.

Lastly, the sequential speed of your SSD isn't very important: it's the random and 4K read speeds that make the drive fast in real life. thumb.gif Check if those speeds are being affected too.

This applies to all X58 motherboards.

You'd better run off a native Intel Sata 3Gb/s port.

Don't buy a PCI-e controller card, it's just never worth the difference.

Well crap. I was about to buy a Crucial M4 128 Gb.But I have an X-58 with a Marvell Sata 3 controller, is this going to be problematic. I was hoping to get the fast response I should get from such a product

Don't use Marvell SATA 3 controller on X58 chipsets. The Intel SATA 2 is good enough for everything, unless you want better benchmarks.

Okay so i willbe fine connecting a SATA 2 cable to the M4 and to a SATA 2 port on my mobo. Will I still get better speeds than my samsung Spinpoint F1?

Someone said to install intel drives over the Marvell driver...does this work?

Yes. If you install your OS and a few programs on your SSD you will see a big difference in load times compared to your HDD.

Its cause u got x58 chipset. On Ocz website they write with small text you need p67 chipset or later. i got the same problem with my x58 chipset. with sata 3 controller. So i had to buy a new motherboard and cpu to get the full speed out of my vertex 3

READ THIS. if you go to: http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-vertex-3-sata-iii-2-5-ssd.html

you find this in the button of the page

Important SSD notes: Solid State Drives DO NOT require defragmentation. It may decrease the lifespan of the drive. Consumers may see a discrepancy between reported capacity and actual capacity; the storage industry standard is to display capacity in decimal. However, the operating system usually calculates capacity in binary format, causing traditional HDD and SSD to show a lower capacity in Windows. In the case of SSDs, some of the capacity is reserved for formatting and redundancy for wear leveling. Rated speeds may vary slightly depending on the benchmark used, drivers, windows version, bios version and file size. We recommend using ATTO, IOMeter, and PC Mark Vantage for benchmarking SSDs and to achieve maximum rated specifications. Maximum performance is achieved by using the P67 chipset with Native SATA 6Gbps.
