Hello,

 

I just wanted to post my ATTO results from my brand new Corsair Force GT 60 GB SSD. I have attached my results to this message.

 

Thanks once again Corsair for making an awesome product and wowing me all over again! :cool:

I just received and installed my 120GB yesterday. Am pleased and very happy with my new setup. Anxious to see what effect the drive speed will have on MS Flight Sim X!

 

I've posted my results (very similar to yours) in an attachment also.

 

Another great job and exciting new product Corsair!! Well Done!

Just an update on the status of my Force GT 60 GB after 1 week. I have NOT encountered 1 bsod, freeze, boot-up or bios issue, or any other issue. I am very happy to report this has been been an excellent drive thus far and I am still very impressed by this drive.

 

On to the great news now, I ordered a 2nd Force GT 60 GB and I am going to do a RAID 0 Array with both of them when I receive the other one tomorrow. I will post up ATTO Results once I am back up and running tomorrow night.

I also just installed the Force GT 120GB but have much lower speeds =/ (AHCI is enabled on the Marvell sata 3 controller on my P6X58D-E) And I did a fresh W7 install with it enabled.

 

The culprit is probably the Marvell controller in my case. But I would like to hear from others with the same motherboard.

Edit: reading here and elsewhere, it seems my results are pretty low =( I just noticed I don't have the "removal policy" section under the drive's properties/policy tab.

Yeah, I think you're right. I've tried plugging in into the Intel controller instead, and with various drivers I get much slower speeds than the Marvell. This to me is an indication that it is a controller issue. But would be nice if there was someone with the same board (P6X58D-E) who could share their results =)

 

Edit: from more googling, it's seems I'm screwed!

 

The problem is the Marvell 9128 controller only using 1 pcie slot with a 5Gb/s bandwith. And with overhead etc. it's more like 4Gb/s. Every board that has this controller suffers from the same problem it seems (for instance the Rampage III extreme as seen here: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1037483753).

 

The Intel H67/P67 has Sata 3 (http://www.guru3d.com/article/********-********-3-pro-review/13), and people with these boards are having awesome speeds.

 

(Notice that the people in this thread who report great speeds - all have p67 motherboards with Intel sata 3 controllers).

 

So I thought to myself that I would just get such a board. But! My CPU is an LGA1366 socket CPU, and all H67/P67 boards are LGA1156 from what I've seen. Bummer! Stuck with Marvell 9128 ARRGHHHHHHH...

 

Edit2: There seems to be some hope in the form of Intel's upcoming X79 chipset which will support LGA1366: http://motherboardnews.com/2011/06/13/intels-x79-chipset-to-support-lga-1366-cpus/

You mean LGA1155 (Socket H2), the successor of LGA1156 (Socket H), on a side note the X79 Chipset will supposedly natively support 10 SATAIII ports (8 supporting SATA and SAS) and 4 SATAII ports though the actual number of ports will vary based on the way the manufacturer decides to configure the board. :):

Yeah LGA1155 =) Meanwhile I've just ordered an Asus U3S6 sata3 card (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Accessories/U3S6/#overview), this should at least provide the required bandwidth =) I'll do an ATTO when it arrives. I know my board Asus P6X58D-E isn't on the compatible list, but that must just be an oversight.

 

Edit: FFS the Marvell is highly unlikely to support trim regardless of driver used. Pile of ...

Hello again!

 

It has been 1 week since I installed my 2 Corsair Force GT 60 GB SSDs into a RAID-0 Array.

 

I am very happy to report that everything is still running 100% error free.

 

Great job once again Corsair! Thanks for making excellent products!

I have just installed the same drive on the same board and I am getting exactly the same result on ATTO. Whilst read speeds may be limited by the single pci-e lane as I have read elsewhere, it is the write speed which is only slightly faster than my samsung F1

The Marvell controllers are bugged and simply will not perform all that well with faster SSDs. I suggest that you try the Corsair drive on an open Intel ICH10-R port if you have one.

Thanks, tried the Intel ICH10-R port, but only 280 MB/s compared to 380 with marvell, and write speeds slower than samsung F1. Will stick with marvell until I replace mobo in future with full on board 6g/s support.
