I just got a mushkin SSD which is rated at 6gb/s and has sequentian speeds according to the company of 560-520 mb/s.
I migrated my system hdd to the ssd using this method here. and realigned the partitions in the way mentioned in the link. Now here are the results i get from benchmark.
Here are my crystaldiskinfo results for my ssd

Do you think there is a problem with alignment? Here is a Screenshot of my msinfo32 info on my ssd.

Any help please?

Are the SSD already set to AHCI mode with TRIM is on?

Yes AHCI is on and TRIM is on.
As I found out I need to set data fill rate to 0 from the benchmark options to see the advertised speeds... Seems like it is working fine after all.
