    Default GA-X58A-UD3R and new SSD drive

    Hi,
    I just plug my new SSD Corsair Force 120gig and I'm a little disappointed with my tests results under windows xp 64
    My system are: GA-X58A-UD3R
    I7-3.06GHZ, Radeon HD6870, memory:Muskhin cas 7 6gig, 750W corsair PSU,
    Before connecting new SSD I read some good articles posted in the group,but still many things unclear for me.
    Since making Raid with SSD is unsafe(no Trim) I decide to run only one drive witch givin me only 180mb/s transfer rate in write mode and in read 204.2mb/s average under intel ports setup to Raid since I have also connected 2 Raptors 300gig/each in raid 0 and those giving me almost same results as SSD.
    Connecting SSD to Marvell port look a bit better : read average 280mb/s and write 182mb/s.
    Apparently Intel ports better then Marvell but not in my case.
    Can someone tell me what max speed can I expect from SSD in my X58a-ud3r environment.
    Maybe some suggestion for setup the ports also I was thinking to buy a Biostar SATA III 6G b/s 2 port PCI Express Internal Controller Card and that one my help me to improve my transfer rate.
    All comments appreciate.
    Thanks
    Adam

    for best results you need the new intel sata3 ports found on,it should have mentioned it where you purchased the ssd? p67/x68 and x79 mb's,it usually mentions it where you purchased the ssd? and i think the biostar pci card will be using the marvell controller,havent seen any add in cards that use the newer intel sata3 controller

    it might be same read/write as your raid set up but the ssd 4k read/write will be much greater which is where it matters the most,use atto bench tool aswell to give more clearer reading but dont run too many tests as it will degrade ssd performance,you might need the new intel raid rom adding to your current bios? not sure but a few users on here know how to modify the bios to include it

    Thanks for fast response.
    To make sure I understanding correctly I will have to ask you again.
    The numbers from my readings are the most I will get?
    ONLY If I run SSD in raid i will accomplish 500mb/s performance?
    GA-X58A-UD3R has Sata3 ports (",it should have mentioned it where you purchased the ssd? p67/x68 and x79 mb's,it usually mentions it where you purchased the ssd?") --this one is not clear for me.
    best results I will get with p67/x68 x79 boards?
    Should I get Biostar SATA III 6G b/s 2 port PCI Express Internal Controller Card or not



    The P45 chipset diagram shows that each pci-e x1 slot's bandwidth is 500MB/s.
    Maybe you could install this card in the lower pci-e x16 slot that would have an 8GB/s bandwidth and your graphics card's bandwidth would also drop to 8x bandwidth.

    yes best results are on the newest mb's,the marvell sata3 ports arnt as good as the new intel sata3 ports,the biostar will have the marvell ports on it,you will see more speed in raid but no trim support

    ^^^ theres no bandwidth limitations on x58 regarding sata3 or usb3,

    The diagram may show show they are 500MB/s per lane but it's actually 250MB/s.

    No limitations means I wont gain anything by buying Biostar card?will be same since it has marvell ports on it?

    You also metion to do 4k partition and that will speed up my proformance.I wish to use windows xp64bit 2003
    After creating partition do some testing and should be a bit faster?
    What to do to make work faster?otherwise is waist of money since my raid preforming almost same.GA-X58A-UD3R and new SSD drive-intel_raid600g_read-jpg
