glenf Posted January 28, 2013 Share Posted January 28, 2013 Hello All, I have a Samsung RC530 Laptop which supports SATA 3 and I recently purchased a Corsair Force GS 240GB Drive but the disk seems to be running on SATA 2 mode and I don't know why. Can anyone help me, I have listed all the tech specs below:- Laptop: Samsung RC530 Bios:- 06WD (Latest Bios available and the one i'm using) Motherboard:- Intel HM65 (Cougar Point) [b3] AHCI:- Enabled In BIOS and In Windows 7 SDD:- Corsair Force GS (Firmware 5.05A) Intel Rapid Storage Installed but still no luck.. There is one particular problem though I see why the drive is running in SATA 2 mode. The bios option SATA GEN 3 is disabled,however when i enable this it doesn't seem to detect the SDD on next boot. Then I kept the SATA 3 in "enabled" mode and disabled "AHCI" and it now detects the drive but i'm then not able to boot into Win 7 OS so in the end i have to disable SATA GEN3 mode and enable AHCI for the drive to work but the only question is it runs in SATA 2 mode and i checked the benchmark results from ATTO (reads and writes are around the 250MB/s mark Please any help would be appreciated.
