Can somebody look at this and give me some feedback on it please?



I'm running a gigabyte ga-p55a-ud3 motherboard and i7-860 processor.

Looks quite good to me! Slightly better in the 4k than my X25 M 80gb, everything else looks pretty close I think.

Hey actually I just found my screenshot of my results. I guess yours is a tad low


Have you installed the Intel RST 9.6 drivers? Might help a bit.

Yep, I'm running the RST drivers from intel.

I used the intel toolbox to do a cleaning and my write speeds shot up a bit. I still have a feeling that the motherboard is doing something to hold me back because the numbers I got above were with a 3.5ghz overclock. Stock speed I get reads of less that 200 in the seq test.

^Make sure your connection mode are set to AHCI. Doing a clean that improves writes can be a sign of trim not working which is a sign that your connected by IDE, not AHCI like you should be.

And what are RST drivers? What do they do? I have an Intel X25-M, should I download this driver?

Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Technically it should only be needed if you're running RAID mode (but with the SSD not a part of the raid). So, for those of use who run RAID 0 HDDs and an SSD for booting, RST is a must.

@OP and wolfram23: You two are using two different version of that benchmark. Try the same version. That may explain the difference.

Or download and try HD Tune Pro.

He's using the iaStor driver (part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager) so he's almost certainly running AHCI.

I've always used the default AHCI driver for my SSds and Bench marks have been close to Specs and reviews. However my latest SSD (Gskill Pheonix pro was low on Sequencial and 512 K reads (Right on for 4 K random). It appears the Intel AHCI driver (Included in the Intel Matrix storage driver (Ver 9) is need for optimum performance.

Quote From Manuf comments - GSkill Pheonix Pro, Newegg comments.
Also, the AHCI driver should be the latest Intel Matrix Storage Technology driver or Rapid Storage Technology for optimum performance.
