Hi,

I have just installed an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD on my PC. After running a Benchmark test I can't get the real maximum read/write speeds (550Mb/s for read and 500Mb/s for write). The speeds I get 373MB/s read and 161MB/s write which are too low for my SSD.

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-x58A-UD7 which supports SATA III 6Gb/s. I have connected my SSD with an Sata 3 cable into the appropriate Sata port on my motherboard. I also enable the ACHI mode in BIOS and I also install the latest updates for the Intel Chipset.

What else I have to do to get maximum performance from my SSD?

Thanks

If you are using the Marvell 9128 controller (white SATA ports), you should read http://www.tomshardware.com/review [...] 863-3.html (Moving to 6Gb/s section).


So after reading the article there is no way to get max. performance using Marvell 9128 controller.... :(

Have you tested using the ICH10R? You can't expect full performance unless the motherboard or the controller allows it.
