If you want faster speeds you should have gotten this drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226226
or something more expensive.

Question as I'm a bit confused regarding Mushkin's products. Does the Deluxe have Sync ONFi NAND or Toggle NAND?

The Mushkin 120GB SSDs I saw at Newegg were:

Chronos 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB: $90 (Async ONFi similar to OCZ Agility 3?)
Chronos Deluxe MX 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-MX: $120 (Sync ONFi similar to OCZ Vertex 3?)
Chronos Deluxe 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-DX: $195 (Toggle similar to OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS?)

and then for the 240GB:

Chronos 240GB MKNSSDCR240GB: $210
Chronos Deluxe 240GB MKNSSDCR240GB-DX: $230

Price difference between the Chronos 120GB and Chronos Deluxe 120GB is $105 - more than the price of the Chronos 120GB. Meanwhile, the disparity between the Chronos 240GB and Chronos Deluxe 240GB is only $20. The OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS (Toggle NAND) models cost $200 ($180 AR) and $400 ($380 AR) for 120GB and 240GB respectively.

First off, the Deluxe does have Toggle mode NAND while the non-Deluxe has asynchronous OFNi, and the deluxe has a different controller, the 2282, not the 2281. However, those prices are insane! You can get a similar drive for half the price!

Outlawed Cool, well thanks man! Amazing thread you have up, going through all the tinkering now. Defiantly throwing some rep your way for that and the help.

edit: Unless you can't get it because your the forum editor lol. Well at least you know I tried tongue.gif

Sean Webster nope

Outlawed So just to be sure before I continue installing software on this machine, I won't benefit at all from another clean install?

Outlawed That sucks. SSD is one of the newer technologies that I haven't really messed around with. Should have researched it a little more before I just purchased one straight off of newegg reviews and details.

I saw read/write speeds of 500mbs+ on the details so figured thats what I would get with a sata III port :/

I believe 7200rpm hdds get around 120mbs read/write. So I really expected even the lower end SSDs to be exponentially faster, not just like 40mbs faster...

If you want to see the speeds that are advertized benchmark with ATTO: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Benchmarks/ATTO-Disk-Benchmark.shtml

SSD is a Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 240gb sata III

I initially installed windows the the sata controllers set to raid. I was under the assumption that this was the biggest and best. So everything ran fine but I couldn't get it to show my old hdd with all the old windows files on it, that I wanted to use as a slave.

Posted around on here and figured out I needed to set it to ahci. After changing this (without a new install), slave showed up fine with all the files.

As stated, I have done a little bit of research via youtube videos and followed some users instructions of how to change settings here in there in windows to help speeds. Other than that though, nothing has been done.

Also I don't mind doing a clean install if you think it will make a more efficient difference. Usually always seems to be the best option in most cases. Might have put some time into this system,, but its still build weekend so I can't say I didn't expect for something like this to happen :/

Well wish I wouldn't have put in all the hours to getting everything setup on this partition already :/

Thanks for the help guys!
No need to reinstall. Just look it over from the "Now It's Time For The System Set Up!" section.
