    Thank you very much.

    I feel better now, and just wanted to be sure I wasn't doing anything wrong when I set this thing up?

    Thanks again for all of your help :toast:

    IOPS is just another metric, you can use to measure transfer speeds:
    IOPS x Transfer size in byte = bytes per second
    Therefore if you are hitting the MB/s e.g. 540read and 250write, then the IOPS are correct.

    I've seen other 970 boards come up a little short on read/write speeds when it comes to SATA III. Is it possible that this is a limitation of the chipset and south bridge? Not all SATA controllers are created equal, including those included by the south bridge.
