Hello, I live in Japan and I've received my replacement 2 days ago and installed Win7U 64bit without any issues. I just want to know why my speeds are very low:

Your speeds are about right for the current Marvell controllers. They are not capable of running the Force 3 drives at their full operating specifications. The only chipsets so far capable of this are the P67 - B3, H67 - B3, and Z68 chipsets.

 

You may want to do a secure erase to restore the drive to factory condition and then test the drive again. Also, be sure you have the latest drivers from Marvell.

I plugged my drive into Intel ICH10R Sata 3Gb and got no more than 200MBps while my old and loyal 64gb drive hit 275MBps, plugged into the same port and using same cables.

 

If there's a compatibility issue maybe Corsair should have warned us before :mad:. I'm frustrated because i feel my upgrade was a actually a downgrade.

 

I'll wait a few more days for a real solution and/or compatibility chart.

 

Regards
