Corsair Force 3 120 GB slow read/write

Recommended Posts

Ive had this almost a year and i remember getting 7.5 windows experience score and now that i bought a new graphics card gtx 670 i ran it again but now its at 5.9 score.

Ive ran some HDD tests and its far below its specified speed. It is connected to the gray intel 6gb/s port with a 6gb cable. All other marvell/jme are disabled. Updated to latest firmware but nothing changed, AHCI is enabled in bios and i did a fresh install with it when i got it.


this test seems to show normal values? If so why dont other tests and why has my WEI score suddenly dropped?



but all other test ive done shows really bad speeds

ATTO uses compressible data to benchmark the drives. It is the benchmark Corsair uses to advertise the speeds of the drives.

CrystalDiskMark is incompressible.


WEI is not a benchmark.

The Windows Experience Index is designed to accommodate advances in computer technology. As hardware speed and performance improve, higher score ranges will be enabled. The standards for each level of the index generally stay the same. However, in some cases, new tests might be developed that can result in lower scores.

With WEI Scores I am sorry but take that up with Miocrosoft..

Atto is the benchmark we use and your scores look fine in that bench mark. So I am not sure what it is you want us to help you with.
