    Step ONE, Select either "Fix it for me" or "Let me fix it" from the below link.
    NOTE DO THIS BEFORE CHANGING BIOS.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
    Once that is done, reboot into BIOS and change BIOS from IDE to AHCI.
    After windows loads you will probably see "Found New Hardware, loading driver" followed by "reboot for this to take effect".

    PS, I do not think Intel driver will replace a PCIDEdriver, They will update the default MS driver msahci.
    Which can then be applied once he has converted the IDE to AHCI.
  5. i have win8 in my pc.
    i install Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver and also i chanche the sata port of my ssd. i was using the Marvell® PCIe 9128 controller
    and now i am using the Intel® ICH10R controller :
    here are the new results

    does this work on win8?
  7. It seems you are not running the latest firmware for that SSD

    My bad, I AM out of date.....

    Your reads look good, but the writes seem slow for some reason.

    EDIT. Image I had, older firmware, but should not make that much difference.
  8. First,changing IDE->ahci
    Seems its a little different for windows 8

    It is slightly different in Windows 8:


    Exit all applications
    Go to the start screen and type in regedit.
    If you see the UAC (User Account Control) dialogue box, just click continue.
    Locate the the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci\startoverride
    In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
    In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
    On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
    Restart and enable AHCI in your system BIOS

    I followed these steps and got endless reboots in my Windows 8 partition only I had to get into recovery mode and do a full reset.

    On Scores
    1) 450 -> low 500s is about right if on a SATA II Intel Port.
    2) On Intel Sata III port the M4 and Samsung 830 overall score is low to mid 700s

    3) Reference the Marvel sata III controller for older Intel systems - don't bother, it is NOT much (if any) better for a SATA III SSD. at least Intel has updated drivers.

    NOTE: I have M4, Samsung 830s, samsung 840 Pro and (Ugh) Agility III (traded one of my agility IIIs even up for a Samsung 840 Pro).
    For my i5-750 which has Intel sata II and a marvel controller for SATA III. I just use a SATA II 120 Gig Pheonix Pro (OS) + and Intel G2 for Some data(files) I most often use.

    thank you for your research but bc my English is bad i didn't understand that:
    First,changing IDE->ahci. So should i do this process with my ssd turn to IDE or should i do this process with my ssd to AHCI?
  10. It appears you have corrected your problem (Changing from IDE to AHCI) and are on the Intel Sata II port., Your latest screen shot shows you are using the Intel Driver, iaSTor. iaSTOR is Intel's equivalent to Microsoft's msahci driver.
    Your Bios, for the Intel controller should be set to AHCI

    Your overall score is considerably low, probably because of what Nuke indicated "low write scores"
    For Intel Sata II port the overall score should be near 500 and on Intel Sata III port it scores around 700.
    What version of Intel's driver did you use. Think their latest is 11.x

    i install the Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver V8.9.0.1023. that is the only available in asus site!
  12. That is what i told you before.
  13. I normally go to Intel to get the latest drivers, seems some of the manuf websites do no always update as newer drivers are releasted.
    Back of my mind you ned a Intel driver 9.6 or later.
    Just check in my control panel, Device manager and I'm am using " Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller ver 10.6.1002 dtd 5/20/2011.
    Newer on is 12.x
