Im using 2 x Samung 840 Pro's 128gb flashed with the latest firmware, latest motherboard bios, latest raid driver.
Im not sure how good these results are or if something is amiss, as the Intel results ive seen in certain benchmarks are quite a bit higher.
This is my first time using an SSD's so may have done something wrong, but I did do my research and set everything up appropriately.
From what I have seen, on Intel rigs, the 4k results in AS SSD and Crystaldiskmark are twice as high.
So am not sure if its something ive done incorrectly or its the limitations of the 990 chipset.
Hope some peeps in the know can comment on these results and hopefully its just something Ive done wrong
Have you disabled Cache buffer flusher and made sure both drives have NCQ Enabled?
If so, you're real close. Might see some benefit from checking items above.
You'll find the method here under the
Optimizations after System Setup:
Here's a snip from my sig rig with everything still currently running (not a bench) just to give a rough comparison.
I haven't had any time to play with my settings much, been to busy learning the new mobo/cpu but on my previous rig a CHIV with a bios hack to use the 990 chipset drivers I had these same two drives running at these levels. These three show (starting from left) original settings after re-imaging, Disabled Cache buffer flusher than the final was after Enabling NCQ on both drives. I found only one drive setup with this enabled for some reason. I'm hoping to achieve previous results posted above on this new CHV-Z and 8350 as time allows.
Can't compete with Intel on this one by any means
