Hey guys,

So i recently bought a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB.

I cloned my old drive and have run AS SSD and only have the results below.



Would anyone be able to assist me with improving performance, is this normal or should i be hitting the 400-500MB Seq?

So my set up is still as signature rig.

But my HDD set up is as follows.

i have 2 sets of RAID 0 arrays on my PC.

2 x WD 640 Black - Currently acting as storage drive
2 x Samsung 500GB

in addition to that i have 1 1TB WD Black as storage.

I think most probably my issue is that SATA is set up as RAID and not AHCI and i read that this affects performance.

So i'm just wondering would i be able to change it to AHCI while maintaining my previous raid arrays? I'm okay with removing the Samsung RAID's as it is my old OS drive which i would be exchanging it into my additional storage drive. But my Blacks, would require a long time to backup because it's full.

Another question i have is that i actually have 8 SATA ports on my Mobo, 6 + 2 Currently i have my 1TB storage drive connected to this, would it be different if i connected my SSD to this instead?

Thanks in advance!
