Which SATA port are you using? The Raid port or Nforce ports? The M2N-SLI Deluxe's RAID port is Jmicron and from what I hear, you can enable AHCI mode if you plug the SSD into the port which will give you a speed gain. The RAID port on my M2n32 on the other hand is silicon image and does not support AHCI and I get better speeds by plugging my SSD into the Nforce ports.

Kingston uses the SandForce Controller so I would run ATTO benchmark and check the speed though that since SF advertises their speeds based on that program. SF drives do worse at AS-SSD compared to non SF based drives since AS-SSD uses incompressible data.

Those AS-SSD scores look pretty good for a SF Drive and my 320 series SSD scores around 290 overall when I first installed it over 16 months ago. It scores in the 250 range since I have stopped manually pushing Intel's like TRIM program though the SSD toolbox over a year ago. I am going to be posting some results on this soon. I would love to see some ATTO results.

Thanks. I have my ssd plugged in to nForce sata #1, I didn't even see the sole JMicron port because its so well hidden by one of my graphics cards and my tuner card redface.gif

Ill swap it and see.

Not seeing the SSD in windows now... hrm

Never installed the jmicron utility/drivers i guess tongue.gif

running atto on jmicron now

Not liking the Jmicron speeds...mad.gif

Yeah this Jmicron port is slow, do I have some setting wrong? AHCI is on in BIOS and the drive is empty.

Here it is on the nForce SATA II much better:

Running a win7 64 bit from the SSD now plugged into the nForce Sata II

Same speeds obviously.

Nice and "snappy"

I always felt that my F3's were fast, but I'm liking the almost zero seek times.


Oh snap... I need to buy more SSD's redface.gif

Interesting. Doing a quick search on that JMicron controller shows it is indeed a SATA II controller.

http://www.jmicron.com/JMB363.html

Weird. Anyone else out there willing to test this out with their SSD's?

LuckySe7ens: Can you try testing speeds on that JMicron controller using Native IDE mode? Just to see if there's a speed difference. Maybe the AHCI is crippled on that particular controller?

Forgot to ask this earlier. Do you have the latest firmware installed on your SSD?

Those ATTO scores look good. The writes look a little low they should be a bit closer (not sure what the seq writes should be at for your drive) to your read but I won't worry about it too much. My Intel 320 series SSD tops out at around 250 read in ATTO and my write is around 160. The writes for my drive is much lower then most because of the controller inside the drive which is basically a updated x25-m and this was the last of Intel's in house controllers before they moved to Marvell with the 510 series and now they are using Sandforce on the 520/330 series SSD's

As expected, your drive really jumped on the 4k's in ATTO versus AS SSD. If our boards had full AHCI support the maximum sequential for SATA II is somewhere around 270 MB/s Even though you have the AHCI option for the Jmicron controller, it is not 100% fully supported. I would also search for some windows drives for that controller.

Hey guys I have another question.

Running M2N-SLI Deluxe with a Phenom II x4 945 with a C3 stepping @ 3.6 GHz.

I use CnQ, and I've read that C1e is another power saving feature on AMD CPUs.

Whenever I enable C1e support, I BSOD before Windows can fully boot. This same behavior also occurred with a Phenom 9950 CPU.

What gives? It's certainly not a deal breaker to not use C1e, but is C1e borked on this motherboard? Is there something I'm not doing properly?

Please advise and thanks as always!

I think Asus "forgot" to add C1e support when they updated the BIOSes for the Phenom & Phenom II CPUs.

Lol well that's funny. Wish I had an Athlon x2 or something to test that out. Thanks for the info!

I have not updated firmware on my SSD. so that may be a limitation. windows drivers for the jmicron controller? I installed some from the motherboard disc. think that there are more up to date ones available?

Bad CPU?

Can run Prime 12+ hours no issues on cores 1-3, but core 4 always seems to fail some point in the testing.

This is on stock settings.

It does take several hours for it to fail, not noticed crash issues yet but I don't think core 4 gets much use.
