SSD Slower Than HDD. Takes long time to boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My SSD, kingston ssdnow v300 120gb has become very slow after a motherboard upgrade. the board is a ASRock 990fx and its also showing slower than my seagate 2tb desktop drive. 

The drive also takes a long time to boot...

Here are some benchmarks

v300s apparently have bad NAND:

i dont like these ssds as they are slow and unreliable. Get an 840 EVO instead. i love mine.

Check to see if your system partition (with the boot manager) is installed on your ssd. If it is on a different drive then you might as we'll be running a dual boot system. I was dealing with something similar just last week.

Its the ssd itself, the kingston ssdnow v300 is one of the worst performing ssds you can buy.

Make sure that the V300 is a 505A (like mine, i'm lucky to get the old model), if not.... then get another SSD, a crucial MX100

 

Just a pic of my SSD:

Check your SATA mode and make sure it's AHCI in the BIOS. If it's not you'll be forced to reinstall Windows, tho that might fix the problem.
