Hey guys, recently just put together that rig in my sig. Needless to say, its a beast.
But I wanted to make sure I have my ssd right and I am getting the full potential out of it. Advertised read/write on the disk is 500+mbs and it is a sata 3 ssd. I have it plugged up to a sata 3 port and have the controller set to ahci as well.
When using 7 zip to extract large files the max read time was averaging at like 120mbs. Not sure if this is the best way to test it, as I'm assuming the bottleneck in this operation is my ssd. I looked up some simple tips on youtube that had me disable little things here and there in windows that got me up to a starting 220mbs or so but it slowly throttled all the way down to 150mbs or so.
So how to I utilize the full potential of my ssd?
