I've checked and re-checked. According to my manual, there is a single Marvell port, which is blue. Then there are four 3Gb/s intel ports, and two intel 6Gb/s beside them...these are gray, and my SSD is plugged into one of them, I promise you.
However, when I installed windows, it was plugged into the marvell, but has since been moved to the Intel.

I will make sure again tonight, to ensure I don't have my wires crossed, and if so I'll eat mywords...but I'm about 99.9% sure that I have my SSD going into an Intel 6Gb/s port.

I've definitively figured out the problem.

I'm an idiot and I have no business plugging anything into anything. That's the problem.

Followed the cables with my eyes yesterday, twice, and yet I managed to allow my HDD into a 6GB/s and my SDD into a 3GB/s.

switched, used Intel rapid storage technology, and getting around 505MB/s read times, which is about advertised speeds.

Again, deepest apologies to anyone who wasted time on this.

This community is amazingly learned, and very patient with a guy who is clearly an amateur...namely myself.

Here it is,download exe file and just start it:

Ideally the Intel RST Driver should be matched to the same series Intel SATA/RAID ROM for optimal performance. Updating to the latest and "greatest" Intel RST Driver doesn't necessarily mean you are getting the best performance and compatibility if the Intel SATA/RAID ROM isn't updated also.

I'm just guessing, but I'll bet that the OP hasn't updated his Intel SATA/RAID ROM................... Hence my recommendation to stick with Asus supplied Intel RST Driver that matches the Intel SATA/RAID ROM that is most likely present on his machine.

With that being said, the Intel RST Driver version 11.2.0.1006 has been pretty compatible with most Intel SATA/RAID ROMs released to date and it is a solid driver stability and performance wise.

Believe me i tried every possible driver with every possible RAID OROM in every possible combination and i can confirm there is no difference in performance when it comes to OROM,only drivers gives differences in performance.
One of combination was to try same number of driver and OROM but it didn't give me anything special.And just for record there is no exact same number(version) of OROM and Intel RST,just first two numbers can be matched.

And every time you tried a new RAID/SATA ROM you did a fresh install of Windows to make sure that you were actually getting the full benefit of the improvements. Or are you saying that you just started flashing ROMs and installing RST drivers on the same installation of Windows without doing anything else?

At any rate, I'm not going to debate the issue because there are plenty of very experienced Win-Raid users and members who repeatedly recommend trying to keep the SATA/RAID ROM in the same series. And I never suggested that meant every single number. In my post I clearly state the "same series".
