Hi.
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. http://lifehacker.com/5837543/how-to-migrate-to-a-solid... and realigned the partitions in the way mentioned in the link. Now here are the results i get from benchmark.

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

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.
