Is my SSD working properly? Help an admitted noob, please!
I recently upgraded my machine. Specs: Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 mobo 8GB RAM HD 7870 Phenom II x4 955 BE Spinpoint F3 500GB Vertex 4 128GB SSD
The SSD is new. I installed windows 7 64x onto it, it's in AHCI (BIOS and Reg), in a SATA 3 port and I still get 5.9 in WEI. The HDD is attached by SATA 3 too, in the same block of ports, not that I think that makes a difference.
I'm thinking though that it might be lumping my HDD into that equation though?
CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 x64 bench:
Should I ignore WEI? I'll admit that I have no idea if those scores are okay or not, I did it more for your benefit! Don't want to leave you guys uninformed, I'm sure someone will be able to help me.
More aboutworking properly admitted noob please
Those results are pretty standard for a 128GB SSD.
You're WEI is lumping the 2 together. If you wanted to see just the SSD, unplug your HDD, run the test. You should get around a 7.7 or 7.8
