Hi all bought myself a Corsair neutron 120GB SSd last week
it seems really quick booting up etc, but after running hd tune benchmark on it
i seem to be only getting 350 mb/s when i thought it should be close to 500 mb/s
Make sure your SSD is connected to one of the 2 Intel 6Gb/s ports (SATA6G_1 or SATA6G_2), not one of the Marvell 6Gb/s ports (SATA6G_E1 or SATA6G_E2).
See page 2-2 of your motherboard manual for the location of the ports.
According to Corsair website's specs, The Neutron Series 120GB SSD have the Max sequential read of 555 MB/s, and Max sequential write of 211 MB/s. That is probably why you are getting low speed results.
Thanks for your reply, but them benchmark results are read speed, therefor should i not be gettin 500 mb/s?, also that benchmark looks rather eratic to me? should it be a consistant speed? like the review you posted
