I just received my 80GB X25M SSD from Intel. I'm seeing an issue here though. Seems as if my sequential read is only hitting around 160MB/s, and write is around 80MB/s. My drive is in IDE mode (forgot to change before install), could this be the issue? If so, is there a way I can enable AHCI mode without re-installing Windows? I'm running this drive on a Gigabyte H55M-USB3 motherboard. If you need any other information, feel free to let me know.

I researched this a bit more and discovered two resources with information on this. First a Microsoft Knowledgebase article describing how to enable the AHCI drivers via the registry: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
