So a few weeks ago i bought Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 60GB, and i installed windows on it in ACHI mode.
I didnt have any problems with it, except it was kinda slow compared to other SSD.
i looked up the same ssd to see if it was normal but my ssd is half the speed of some other guys.
http://i.imgur.com/TsVVN.png that is my atto result, but this guy http://i.imgur.com/OfE0o.png gets doubled the speed. Why is this? can i make my ssd go faster is there any other setting in bios other that ACHI mode i should change?
Also my SSD is connected to sata port 1, my motherboard is Msi H61MU-E35
Thanks alot for the help :)

Your benchmark results are normal.

Your motherboard only has SATA 2 (3Gb/s) ports.
You need a motherboard that has SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports in order to get maximum advertised speeds from your SSD.

Is it worth buying a new motherboard for SATA 3 and also do i need SATA 3 cables, the cables i got now are these http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=300720 ( sorry for norwegian)

I don't think it's worth it.

If you do decide to upgrade your motherboard then make sure it is another Socket 1155. That way you will probably be able to use your same cpu and memory.
