Revodrive 3 x2 speeds are low, please help!


I have the new Revodrive 3 x2 in 240GB, however my benchmarks are showing reads and writes alot less than I'm finding online. Any thoughts on what im doing wrong here. Similar results are appearing for me in AS SSD and ATTO..

All I've done to the drive is install windows 7 64 ult and made the following ssd tweaks from this site

OCZ firmware is up to date at 2.11.

Current speeds:

CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 x64 (C) 2007-2010 hiyohiyo
Crystal Dew World :
* MB/s = 1,000,000 byte/s [SATA/300 = 300,000,000 byte/s]

Heres one review site with what the actual speeds should be (using crystal diskmark with 0Fill)..

    I would try testing / running the PCIe card without the tweaks in place. The tweaks were designed for SATA SSD's & not necessarily the same for a PCIe version. If you noticed in the review, they mentioned it was ran without any of their tweaks performed.
  2. True, I removed the tweaks and rebooted. However the speeds are still the same. Any other thoughts on what that could be? I have it in my mobos 3rd PCIe x4 slot, same speeds were seen in the 2nd slot at x8.
