    So guys treat me like a noob when it comes to SSD speeds. So anyway I was checking into my SSD performance because it seems my Patriot Warp V2 64GB isn't working as well as it should.

    But maybe I am just expecting too much out of it because of all the hype.

    So I am posting a screen shot of my Crystal mark score. If someone could please tell me were I stand and why that would be appreciated.

    Like I said it seems slow to me from what I have looked up to compare it too. It seems most comparable SSD's have a write speed of around 90 something. While here I am only getting 24.

    Again any info would be much appreciated thanks. Also if you think it's a tweaking issue let me know where I can go to learn more about this kind of stuff.

    Thanks

    ****Edit*****

    Now that I have seen this (My Western Digital HDD 500GB Black Caviar) Compared to my previous score of my SSD. I am more worried now. It seems that my HDD is doing jus about as well if not better then my SSD. Thoughts????

    DUDE! Yeah I know I made the cardinal sin.... I didn't look first. It's all good man! I never understood the worries over this..... anyway thanks I found them.

    None the less any thoughts pertaining to my situation in particular could be helpful.

    But yes I have tried SSD tweaker.
    No there is no trim support for my SSD.
    No I have not tried Alignment tool yet but am planning too very soon.

    If your write speeds are that low then you have a Alignment problem.
    Do some more studing up on your drive.

    No TRIM support and I take it this is a used SSD? It needs a format/alignment for sure. Even then write bandwith will steadily decrease over time.
