So basically here is the story. I have 2 WD Caviar Blacks running in RAID0 on the SATA ports (1-2) on the side of my ASUS Crosshair V Formula Motherboard (Latest BIOS). The problem is, as the SATA port assignments go 1-4 (AHCI, RAID, IDE) 5-6 (RAID, IDE) The problem is that you cannot run RAID on 5-6 while running AHCI on 1-4. (the BIOS locks that functionality out.) So I also have a Corsair Force GT with the 5.02 Firmware, and have it running on the single AsMedia 106X SATA port. Now from my understanding, if I moved the SSD to SATA port 3, and ran it UNLINKED from the RAID0 array, in technicality it would be running in ACHI (The AsMedia Controller is in ACHI) . The reason I ask this is because I am not getting proper Benchmarks out of the SSD, I have tested it in 3 different benchmarks, AS SSD, ASSO, HDTune, all fall short about 200 MB/s short on sequential Read.
