Does this seem correct to you? And why does the driver show up as mv91xx?
You have your SSD's connected to Marvell ports, they will perform better connected to Intel ports. I would Secure Erase the SSD's after moving them to the first 2 Intel SATA ports then reinstall Windows7.

By default Windows creates a 100 MB "Recovery Partition" at the start of the disk, using TwoCables instructions to create your partition using the diskpart program allows you to avoid this.
Ok thanks. Nothing to worry about, but handy to know.

Use one of the non 6Gbps ports (put your SSD on the Intel controller).
WHAT!?!? One reason I got this MB was for the 6 gbs ports. Won't it run a little faster with the extra bandwidth? Especially since it is nearing the 3 gbs limit?

And TRIM is enabled... I checked it in the command prompt.

Also, AS SSD reports a 31kb sector size and says - BAD. Does this really make that much of a difference? I'm not really concerned about the 100 mb extra, so would a reinstall of Windows with the correct size really be worth it?

A vertex 2 has a SATA 3 Gb/s interface and benefits nothing from using a 6 Gb/s port..

Also TRIM in the command prompt may be misleading. You may be sending TRIM commands from the OS to the driver, but there's no real way to make sure those commands are actually:
1) Being received on the drive from the driver
2) Actually being implemented on the drive

Once you change to the other controller you will notice a difference.

OK, I'll switch it to the other controller then.

I won't need to do a reinstall though, right? the 31k sector size isn't an issue?

Thanks for the help, and +rep to you my friend
