My drive is from over a year ago, so it is possible that is the difference. But, I just rechecked me specifications and I believe the drive should be faster.
Hmm, maybe this is a motherboard issue. I am going to try and update the BIOS and see if I missed anything when I updated the driver components on my mobo.
I did read on the Corsair SSD Firmware Flash instructions that updated the mobo BIOS can fix a lot of HD issues.
Could it be the fact that my mobo is SATA II connections? I know this Force Series 3 supports SATA III. Maybe that is what I need to get the full results. But still, I don't think the difference between SATA II and SATA III justifies such a poor difference in performance.
