Kung Pow Posted September 24, 2010 Share Posted September 24, 2010 Hi Everybody! 3 weeks ago I bought my new SSD F40 filled with hope of reads/writes from 280 to 270 mb/s ..after excessive benchmarking I learned the truth^^. In general my problem is performance ...I benchmark with ATTO and the results always differ dramaticaly...and I just can´t figure out what to do to keep them at a constant normal range. I have tried switching ports on the board ....or using different drivers....I also returned the SSD once because it annoys the c*ap out of me-.-. It appears to me that this condition always gets worse after I have reinstalled windows(because of deleting Partition and formating). The only thing I always do after a fresh install is ...turning off hibernation and defrag ...relocating pagefiles ...disabling services etc the things they tell you to do at the Corsair HP to enhance performance. I took some screenshots from Bios Settings that may help you pros figuring this out. (ATTO vorher ..is the best result)...(Atto nachher the worst) http://img690.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=attonachherjpeg.png As drivers I use the Intel RST 22.214.171.1244 and Chipset Driver for my Board my BIOS Version is F12. I have reinstalled Windows a lot and lately i played around with the SATA ports because I installed a RAID configuration with two WDC Black Cavair 1TB therefore 1.82 TB total. There are two Controllers on my Board the Intel Controller ICH10R(6 Ports) and the Gigabyte Controller(4 Ports)...I heard that the optimal setup for the ssd was to plug it into the Intel Controller and nothing else. Unfortunetly thats impossible because there isn´t enough space on the Gigabyte Controller for the rest so I had to plug DVD and Burner on the Intel Controller. and got the rest on the Gigabyte one . In conclusion: Intel Controller ICH10R: Port 0 - SSD Corsair F40 Intel Controller ICH10R: Port 4 - DVD Intel Controller ICH10R: Port 5 - Burner Gigabyte Controller Jmicron JMB 322: Port 0 - BlueRay Gigabyte Controller Jmicron JMB 322: Port 1 - Fancontroll(For ******** 1200) Gigabyte Controller Jmicron JMB 322: Port 2 - WDC Black Caviar 1TB (in RAID) Gigabyte Controller Jmicron JMB 322: Port 3 - WDC Black Caviar 1TB (in RAID) And for those of you who understand german here is another thread that I had started shortly after I bought the SSD http://extreme.pcgameshardware.de/laufwerke-und-speichermedien/115748-ssd-corsair-f40.html Please help me I am going insane!
