Boot time Improv. w/ SATA III

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Don't you love all the abbreviation in the title? Here's what I really meant, I am thinking about buying a Crucial C300 and using it as my boot drive. I have a cheapo motherboard though (Asus P5QL/EPU) and I was wondering if it would be worth it to buy something like this SATA III PCIe controller to run it at full SATA 6 GB/s speeds?

Would I see any noticeable difference in boot times if I ran it in SATA II as opposed to SATA II? Also, what's the chance that my mobo will not recognize and boot from the expansion card?

sorry too tired to type what im on about! Give up, Basically cant see a prob with using the pci sata thing, but it will only be as fast as the ssd you put on it....which wont in reality be different to just using a sata port on your mobo....for the low cost of the controller may be worth getting just to try it out...

Boot times would not improve, as booting typically isn't bottlenecked by the SATA2 controller.

What is your current boot time right now? And what kind of boot time are you expecting to get?

Yes, but this SSD has read speeds in excess of 350 Mb/s on SATA III. I'm asking if anyone know from experience if the ~100 Mb/s difference between SATA II and SATA III with this SSD has any effect on windows load time.
