I just installed windows on it and ran a benchmark and these are my results:



I see people with results of around 500MB/s. I've gone through this article aswell

Make sure it's connected to a sata3 port not the sata2 ports.

Also, I wouldn't disable pagefile as that has some stability issues, especially for some older programs.

I have it connected to 1 of these


I couldn't find where it wanted me to go so i skipped the pagefile step :)

Those are SATA2 ports which is probably why.

The white ones are SATA3, perhaps give that a try.

Ok i've pluged the cable into the white SATA3 and these are my results:



Are these normal, why is my write speed the same as before?

Is your SSD 840 Pro or just 840?

840 listed specs:
Sequential Read Up to 540MB/sec
Sequential Write Up to 250MB/sec

840 Pro:
Sequential Read Up to 540MB/sec
Sequential Write Up to 520MB/sec

Those numbers look right if yours is 840.
