Are these normal Read/Write speeds for my SSD?

Go to solution Solved by Captain_WD,

I don't really know what's normal, is this good?:

 

Thanks

 

Hey there Tro,
 
On your AS-SSD benchmark "pciide - BAD" means that you are in IDE mode. That is why your performance is slow. Change the SATA mode to AHCI of the port your drive is connected to. You cannot change SATA modes after Windows installation without editing the Windows Registry file. Also, check your MOBO's manual and make sure the SSD is plugged in a SATA 6 Gb/s port (this way you might avoid removing your GPU). Also I would update all drivers, firmware and get the latest Windows updates.
 
Hope this resolves your issue. Hit me up if you need help with editing the Windows Registry or something else :)

They're a bit on the slower side when it comes to SSDs, from my experience.

 

Something like this happened to me as well, on a Samsung 840 EVO, where for some time the performance was absolute crap, but it got fixed somehow..

Do you remember changing anything? If not, i'll just wait and check back in a month or so and see if it's better.

520/300 on my mx100, I'm not sure why yours is considerably slower.

Are you using sata 2?

I'm not sure which sata port i'm using, i just put it in the top one... I'll check which one later, the sata connectors are underneath my GPU so i'd have to remove it :P

I tried changing some things in Samsung's Magician software, but it didn't fix anything, and Crucial doesn't have an application for their SSDs from what I know anyway...

It ran slow for a few weeks, still don't know why..
