OCZ Revodrive 3 x2 MAX IOPS question

Hello everyone! Another quick question! What is the maximum bandwidth I can achieve by putting an OCZ Revodrive 3 x2 MAX IOPS PCI-Express SSD on a PCI-Express slot? It will "only" give me like 5Gbps! :D Oh! Forgot to mention! Motherboard is ASUS Rampage IV Extreme! Thank you all in advance! Greetings from Greece! :D

  1. Your motherboard has 6 PCIe slots. Assuming that your graphics card is connected to Slot 1, your RevoDrive should be connected to any of the remaining slots except Slot 5. Slot 5 is PCIe 2.0 x1, so if your RevoDrive is connected there then that would explain your problem.
    See page 2-16 of your motherboard manual for the location of PCIe Slot 5.

    If your RevoDrive is not connected to Slot 5 then you should contact Customer Support at OCZ and see if they can help you.

  2. Hello and thanks for your reply! :D Ok so! I got 2 GTX 690 in SLI BUT the Revodrive is still attached to a PCI-EXPRESS x16 slot! On the pre-boot screen it says that the device bandwidth is 5GBps! Is this the maximum possible bandwidth? Thanks again! :D
  3. Best answer
    The maximum bandwidth on Slot 5 is 5Gb/s. If your card is not connected to Slot 5 then something is wrong with your SSD.

    Advertised Read/Write speeds for the RevoDrive are with ATTO benchmark software.
    Test the drive with ATTO to verify if you are only getting 5Gb/s (500MB/s). If your speeds are not greater than that then contact OCZ for help.
  4. Thank you very very much! Be well! :D
