Crucial C300 Install Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on my C300 with my new Asus Rampage III Formula motherboard. I hooked up the drive to one of the Sata III ports and changed the controller over to AHCI before the install. Everything went great and I am now installing driver updates.

My question is whether or not to install the drivers for the Marvell controller in Windows? I have read that a lot of people don't suggest it since the Microsoft version is supposedly better, but I am not quite sure which way to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you test the read speeds? if they are to spec then you should be ok. use ATTO benchmark.
