Vertex3 on Marvell Controller

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'd like to get a new OCZ Vertex3 (like everyone else) for my Asus P6X56D-E board. I understand the SSD will get no where up to speed on the Marvell controller. Is this true? Do I just run it off the Intel controller? Will it still operate at 6GB? Do I just need a PCI card? Thanks in advance.

No. You don't need a PCI Card. Just run it on a 6GB/s port.

if you're going to run off the sata 3gb you mind as well get a vertex 2, if you really want to use the sata 6gb get a crucial c300. i got my 128gb for 200 when they were on sale at egg two weeks ago.

I would like to run the Vertex3, which is SATA 6GB, on the Marvell SATA3 controller. Is anyone else doing this. What are your benchmarks. This SSD is surpose to get 550 mb/s read. I heard this doesn't happen on any X58 chipset board.
Anyone?

That is correct, the Marvell controller has much slower writes than the intel. You're better off not using it on the X58 platform.

You might as well save some money and get a last-gen SATA 3Gb/s Sandforce drive, like the Vertex 2 (not recommended because of 25nm flash), Corsair Force, or Mushkin Callistro Deluxe because your SATA controller supposedly can't hit speeds over 300Mb/s.

In daily use, I don't think that you'll see much of a difference anyways because of high speeds that last-gen sandforce offers.
