I did a fresh install, I didn't know about ahci until I checked my read/write speeds then changed the setting from ide to ahci on the ssd. I did the atto test and the scores came out higher. The max read was 275 mb/s and the write was 240 mb/s. Does that mean the other test was incorrect?
Yes it means the other test was incorrect. there are tests that don't work well with ssd drives.. it is suggested to use atto for ssd benchmarks.
@magic bullet : here is a ;ink to a utility that will tell you if your ssd is aligned or not http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/other/157
I don't know how to use it ( I don't have an ssd myself) however if you created the partitions using the windows 7 cd, you should not have any issues
