  1. Best answer
    make sure :
    connect SSD to sata III 6gbps socket on your mobo
    set sata setting in BIOS -> AHCI, not IDE

    i dont know any other solution :)
  2. There is no 6gbps Sata III plug on my board, its a bit older. I knew I would see a drop but that's pretty hefty..
  3. Update windows .Automatically detect and install latest best driver and fix all issues.
    Update bios.
    Update hdd/ssd firmware.
    Change cmos battery.
    Full Scan system with "SUPERANTISPYWARE" Freeware.
    Load default settings in bios.
    clean system fans make sure no one damaged.
    which os u r used.
  4. Looking for a bios update specifically for SSD's but I can't find any :( Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

    Got the firmware update but until I can determine I wont destroy my fresh new format with it I'm just going to sit on it...

    Edit - It looks like there hasn't been a bios fix released for my mobo in over 2 years.. Would I be safe just to do the firmware update?
