wlfng2005 Posted October 31, 2010 Share Posted October 31, 2010 Hello, I just bought a new Corsair Force F-80 and put it in my laptop after I yanked out the OEM HDD (seagate 500GB 7200RPM) I did a clean windows 7 ultimate 64bit install with proper drivers and all. I am installing this F80 to my laptop-which is a Dell Studio XPS 1645. Here is the specs of my system: Intel core i7 720QM (1.6Ghz) 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM ATI radeon 5730 video card up-to-date BIOS intel PM55 chipset (up-to-date) Yet I am still getting Minimum read=96MB/s, Maximum read=174mb/s and average read = 160mb/s (please see attachment--I used HD tune pro 4.6 to do the benchmark). I also ran a test using Windows 7's WEI and got a score of 5.9, this is unacceptable because my old HDD (seagate 500GB 7200RPM) already achieves this score and it is not acceptable for an ssd to get the same score. The device was advertised to run upto 285MB/sec read and 275MB/sec write. Though the term "up to" is there, but I still think that the difference should not be that huge (>100MB/s). My system enables AHCI by default, and I also turned on TRIM support via CMD. By the way, my F80 has firmware of 1.1, I am unable to upgrade it to 1.1a since I do not have the cable to use the F80 as 2nd drive. Please let me know if my F80 is defective or not. I am located in San Jose, CA, so hopefully this issue can be resolved in a timely manner? I hope to optimize my drive and get it to perform at its intended speed and performance.
