Hi guys I'm going to buy a 120gb SSD so I've done some research.

When I came across this article: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/08/07/nand_flash_fa...

They claim I can't get maximum read/writes out of a 2011 SSD on the SATA3.0 Marvell port (I have two of those on my GB-X58A-UD5). This is quoted from my motherboard box "Double your hard disk performance with SATA Revision 3.0 (SATA 6Gbps) from Marvell..."

Now the two products I had in mind after looking at... I CAN GET THEM FOR THE EXACT SAME PRICE.

Are either the...
PATRIOT WILDFIRE 120GB (I like the toshiba flash). - http://patriotmemory.com/products/detailp.jsp?prodline=...

OR

Intel 510Series 120GB 6GB/s - http://ark.intel.com/products/56576/Intel-SSD-510-Serie...(120GB-2_5in-SATA-6Gbs-34nm-MLC)

They both cost the same where I live. But if I can't get optimum speed out of the wildfire with the outdated SATA3 port. I would consider going for the (acording to Tomshardware) slower but 'more reliable' intel branded SSD.



This all comes down to one question. How much read/write speed would the Marvell Sata3.0 port stunt on the Wildfire (e.g. -20% overall performance). And would it do the same thing to the intel chips?

Thank you in advanced.
