I am here. SSD issues are not a matter of OCing, so I would suggest to address that in an appropriate thread or open a new one here on OCN. Hopefully there are people who are more qualified on SSDs to answer there.

Before you do that, one thing - is the PC snappier than with HDD? If yes...

Out of continuity for your PC setup, I will give you some general points - here is a guide, I would suggest double checking again if you use the appropriate 6Gbps cable (you'd have SATA III or 6Gbps written on the cable) & if you are sure connected to that grey 6Gbps SATA slot (middle grey slots, the top or below once in the middle, not to motherboards right (or rather up) that are marked as M). Make 100% sure it is connected with the right cable to the right slot. Then I would check if you have updated firmware, then check again if TRIM is "zero", as per instructions here:

TBH, never heard of Userbenchmark till now. And each SSD/company has different performance, so even a comparison between mine and your SSD will result in losses on both sides... So, Deepor is right - use the CrystalDiskMark, a recommended software. Speaking of that comparison and inevitable losses in comparisons, here - I used CDMark and my ssd performs worse than yours in first two benchmarks, but yours in last two more than mine (see attached picture and red areas). Again SSD are different, but all I can suggest is to ask an SSD expert or actually address the SSD company.

Worst case scenario - exchange the SSD with Newegg, just keep an eye so that 30 days from purchase do not pass.

P.S. your ssd is on the left and mine (Sandisk Ultra II 960Gb) is on the right, two different companies, surely two different performances. You might want to goodle reviews on your specific SSD name/model etc to compare properly, if you find them. It might be good to give us the exact name of your SSD too (look at the cardboard, which I hope you didn;t threw away or even take a picture of it with that sticker on).
