    any ideas whats wrong here?

    things i have checked, SSD is plugged into Sata 3 slot.
    SSD is aligned.
    i cant upgrade the firmware atm as my driver is not supported (intel rst) but its something iwill be doing when i can.

    i have also copied a large file from it self, to itself and it maxed out at 55mbps....


    Left image is online benchmark.... right hand is mine.

    Must be a driver issue.

    I am at a loss here. :confused:
    Are you using this drive connected to the motherboard in you specs?
    Or, is it a different MB or an add-on card?

    The reason I ask this is... Your MB in the Specs uses a AMD SB850 chipset, not an Intel south bridge (Which is required by Intel's RST).
    You may wish to try the AMD South Bridge and AHCI for Windows 7 and/or the SB8xx RAID Driver for Windows 7: 64 bit link to the software


    Some of the firmware updates state(d) that it will not work with Intel's RST, however, I have never had any problem.
    However the newer updates for the Vertex 3 states: So, you would need an alternate method to flash the firmware.

    And, you are connecting the drive to the (should be blue, not white) SATA3 1-6 ports?
    AHCI is enabled in the bios?
    Using the latest bios for the MB?

    BAH... you are correct, im not using an intel chipset...

    ( my last mobo had it )....



    well then i guess i will have to try update it from another PC as it does not show up with the tool,


    i have it set to raid, but it should use AHCI for non raid drives... i also tried the white slots set to ahci but that was a no no.
    cant boot windows without it in raid mode...
