Hyper X SSD problem

Hey guys I just went and bought the Kingston hyper X 120g today.. Im getting the advertised read speeds.. Around 510-520 in crystal disc mark but my write speeds are only around 170 mb/s.. I'm plugged into my sata 3 ports.. Any reason my write speeds are so low?

System specs -

msi p67a-g45
I5-2500k
Asus gtx 570
6g skill trident

Thanks in advance

  1. Are you using the first SATA III port? This seems to be an issue with some drives but I would expect it to affect reads and writes. Are you using AHCI mode instead of IDE mode?
  2. yes, im in ahci with the latest drivers and in the first sata 3 port
