ocz agility 3 underperforming?

hey everyone im just wondering if you could take a look at some benchmarks for me. the solid state drive i bought recently doesnt seem to be performing as well as it should. or i beleive anyways. the SSD has windows installed on it. which i know will make a bit of a difference. but is there anything i can do to improve it? trims are enabled and it is properly alligned which i used paragon alignment tool for.

    tried following a ssd tweak guide and windows is faster to load but it seems that the bench's are pretty close to the same

    Correct. Plug the drive into the Intel SATA 3 (6Gb/s) port and your benchmark results will improve.


    Also FYI, advertised speeds for your drive using AS-SSD are up to 190MB/s Read and 210MB/s Write. If you are looking for the advertised 525MB/s Read and 500MB/s Write then you have to benchmark with ATTO software.
