Solved which ssd is better for me? Tags: SSD Storage Motherboards Last response: August 3, 2013 8:12 AM in Storage Share idkwho August 3, 2013 6:01:35 AM Hi I am stuck on a decision on which ssd I should buy that is better for my current motherboard. This is because I heard that there is some bottleneck regarding the asmedia sata 3 controller. My motherboard is the Asus P8H61-M Pro and I need some recommendations on which 120GB SSD I should purchase. The SSDs I were looking at are the Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB (MLC) and the Samsung 120GB 840 EVO (TLC). My budget is between £70-£90. Which one will offer me faster speeds and reliability/longevity? Thank you very much for any help.
