Alright, so before anyone asks, I have been reading up on this issue for about 4 hours now, and I cannot find a solution to what is going on. Here is a quick view of my setup:

768x-ud3h-b3 motherboard
i7 2600k
8gb of ram
3 hdd
1 OCZ Agility 3 120gb SSD
PNY GTX460
A dvd drive ^_^

So for the problem, and what I have tried. The ssd write speeds are extreamly low (or i think they are low), they range from 150 mb/s to 203 mb/s.

I have, updated my bios, re installed all of my motherboard drivers, except a Intel driver you have install when pressing f6 (dont know how exactly to do this), I have went from the Marvell sata 6 to the Intel sata 6. I have went from achi to ide, and back, same thing. I have updated the ssd firmware to 2.15. I have tried resetting all bios settings. Trim is enabled. Also I do not run windows off this drive, just wanted to use it for games to decrease load times. I do not know what else to try, if someone could please help me I would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Also a pic of the benchmarks.

So if i reinstalled windows while running in ahci mode, this would be 1 step close/or fix my problem?

i dont think he is saying you need to reinstall windows. you can turn it on in the bios

btw, you have a sandforce 2281 controller, what were you trying with intel and marvell?

Its on in the bois, but I still get no speed increase past 200 mb/s. And I have tried with both intel and marvell with the same results. But I did install windows previously in ide not raid or ahci mode. Ill try reinstalling, this time to the solid state drive and see how that goes.

So I have deleted windows from the drives, but when I try to install the intel drivers in f6, I get the 0x803x00001 error and cannot install it to that hard drive. Tried looking up online, but I don't really know what to do.

I have installed the drivers in the f6 mode and successfully installed windows on the SSD. Unfortunately this has not changed my drive speed, I am still only getting around 200mb/s read
