    Strange SSD behavior!

    I would call it an issue, but wouldn't call it serious. Even though the performance difference is debatable, something is not working as intended.

    Strange SSD behavior!

    That's what I thought except it's not about the CPU clock itself, meaning that setting the minimum processor state to 100% (and checking it with CPU-Z that it is 4.0 ghz at all times, http://valid.canardpc.com/2667419) is not helping, so if I have to guess its about a feature other than CPU...

    Why is that?

    Strange SSD behavior!

    Ok, I found the problem and the solution. So apparently the CPU has more idle modes than I thought. In other words, the CPU can be idle even if it's not downclocking itself. Which is great, but some chipsets - like mine (AMD 880G/SB710) - is not "waking up" the CPU in case of heavy I/O...

    Strange SSD behavior!

    Yes, I know, but I need to figure this one out because it's just keep bugging me. And I've seen a bunch of benchmarks about the very same SSD's I have and people are getting the numbers in these synthetic tests as I am when my CPU is at 100%. I thought of everything, but couldn't figure out...

    Strange SSD behavior!

    Hi, I'm just going to start with a picture: http://screenshotuploader.com/i/01/6uu0lcv1h.png Explanation: The benchmarks on the left side are made while the CPU was not stressed, as in idle environment, but here's come the fun part because the benchmarks on the right side are made while...
