Recently I got a intel 520 120 gb ssd. I installed it in the sata III port, and moved my 1tb 7200 to the sata II port. I noticed recently that when the hdd is disconnected my computer boots and runs faster. Is their anything I could do about this?
Question I have is what sort of board are you using? are you using an AMD or intel CPU ?
If you are using an intel CPU I suggest that you install the SSD onto the sata III port using the Intel chipset, and if possible use the second sataIII port for the hard disk, I seem to recall that some sataIII chips on some boards cause issues when using an boot SSD on them.
