First of all i want to thank you for taking the time to read my post and i will appreciate any help-answer.

I just bought a Samsung 840 pro SSD cause my other SSD was pretty much out of space.
My problem is that the speeds are not close to the advertising speeds of SSD.
I don't know if its the motherboard that don't support them or if it is something wrong with the installation-drivers.

This is the benchmark with AS:

and bellow prints from samsung Magician

Using the Marvell latest drivers.

Thanks in advance!

x58 chipset based motherboards do not have native 6Gb/s SATA ports. You will not get advertised Read/Write speeds from any model current generation SSD you connect to the motherboard.

Your motherboard's Marvell controller has a bandwidth of PCIe x1 at 5Gb/s (500MB/s).

Your benchmark results are normal.
