I bought a Hyper X 3k 120GB SSD, and it is getting barely half the advertised speeds (555MBs/510MBs). Yes it's plugged in to SATA III. I don't know what is wrong, or maybe I'm just forgetting something stupid. Anyways, here is a link to the ATTO Benchmark: http://i.imgur.com/pBx7xk6.png

It would appear something is out of whack with your setup. Here is my 15 month old 128GB Hyperx 3K, under the exact same parameters:


Getting pretty much the exact advertised speeds.

Your motherboard does not have native SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports. It uses an ASMedia ASM1061 controller for the 6Gb/s ports.

Current generation SSDs need to be connected to native 6Gb/s ports in order to get advertised Read/Write speeds.

1.) Update your ASMedia AHCI drivers to version 2.0.2.0 dated 19/11/13
2.) Update your ASMedia controller firmware to version 3.02 dated 20/11/2013

See if that improves your benchmark results

The Host controller helped some, but it's still off by about 150mb/s. http://i.imgur.com/ONhySch.png I don't know how to install the other thing. Thanks!
