    Default What did I mess up with my Marvell 9128 driver??

    I've seen many troubles with the Marvell 9128 driver with sata 3... but I messed something up and made mediocre even worse!

    I'm running the p55a-ud4p and a corsair gt 120gb ssd plugged into the marvell sata port, ahci enabled in bios (also on the gsata and esata - not sure if those should be left at ide or change them like the ahci/ide setting at the top of that integrated peripheral screen), using the marvel console driver off of the GB website. I am only getting up to around 200mb/s, tops, and before I started messing around with everything, I was getting about 411mb/s (max read speed). I've tried using the marvel drivers off of the station-drivers website, flashing the marvel bios, etc, but not able to get those speeds back up. Any ideas? I see the question a lot, but not a lot of answers / tests out there - and I don't think I saw another than hit 411mb/s. Currently, I have a clean install and tried the intel INF update for the board and tried the GB inf update for the board, but same speed.

    I might have run ATTO off of another HD when the ssd wasn't the main drive, but not sure if that would make a difference or not.

    What make/model ssd? And try not to run too many benchmarks as it can degrade ssd performance

    Sorry I missed it,I'm using my phone, you could try loading optimized defaults if you havnt already? Is the drive fairly empty? And have you run trim/garbage collection ect?

    You might have a look at this post at the Corsair forums... There is also a wealth of information there on their SSDs

    The Corsair Force GT series uses synchronous NAND, so it won't hurt performance even if it is reasonably full.
    The Corsair Force 3 series uses asynchronous NAND, so it's performance starts to suffer even if it is only about 30% full. This also applies to other ssd brands.

    BTW, I too missed the un-capitalized "GT" model in the first post.
    This is why it helps us when you have a detailed hardware list in your forum signature.
    It's also a good idea to include the motherboard version, bios version, and brand/model names or numbers for all hardware.

    When you are using the Marvell Gsata ports, you will need to make bios changes that deal with Marvell/Gsata options.

    Unless someone with a similar setup has an answer, your best bet is to check out the Corsair ssd forums where you might need to ask them.

    I forgot to say that if you have Usb 3 enabled aswell on that mb then sata3 speeds will reduce,same goes for running sli/xfire

    Balls! Well, I have usb3 enabled and just added SLI. Wierd... did I miss something along the way as to why those decrease SATA3 speeds? I suppose I can try to disable SLI and repeat the test to see what's going on. Thanks for the suggestions!

    All three share the same pci-e bus this is why. I believe is one or the other you cant have all enabled.

    its the design of the p55 chipset,it robs bandwidth from pci-e,if you download gpu-z it will show your cards running 16x and one will be running 8x,and i think it affects sata speeds aswell if both sata3 and usb3 are enabled
