rig:
i7 875k
8gb micron ddr3 1333mh
gtx560 2gb
asus p7p55d deluxe
corsair 850wTX
win 7 X64.

AS SSD bench reads:

.107ms----.328ms
score
128 130
321

Scores aren't too bad considering your SATA II 3GB ports. Just make sure you're using a native Intel port, use the MSAHCI drivers, and set AHCI I/O mode in BIOS. For long term performance consider over-provisioning by 10% or more.

over provisioning? yea all the bios are set (ahci, i/0) do they run faster with the newer sata 6g? I thought it didnt make that big a difference but its worth me looking into thanks!

Over-Provisioning -- scratch space used by the SSD's firmware to help with TRIM, GC and wear-leveling. Especially important as the SSD starts filling up. Shrink your current partition to leave 12GB or more of space un-allocated.
