    Many thanks for your replies.

    Marvell drivers

    There is also a firmware update, should I do that also?

    The marvell firmware has to be modded into the bios.

    Here you go. I did a complete bios mod with the latest bios for your board. You did not specify which Rev. board you have 1.0 or 2.0. I assumed it was Rev 2.0. It can be found here GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    Make sure you read how to actually update the firmware.

    Those speeds are from the newer marvell controller on the X58A-OC board. If you plan to use your SSD as a OS drive it would be better on the intel sata2 ports as they have better 4k speeds. Also you will see that using the MSahci drivers vs the marvell drives there is no difference.

    You could do a test before and after bios/firmware update to see if the firmware helps with speeds.

    Yes bios update is done the same way with q-flash.

    the drive will be used as an OS drive with a one game on it and a few small programs like after burner and teamspeak etc, when I get the OCZ back the game swill go on that.

    You can try the drive on both intel and marvell ports and test. You will not see FULL sata3 speeds on your marvell sata3 controller. You should see better 4k reads (better for OS start up and small files)from the intel controller but overall the marvell will be faster then the intel controller.

    The X58A-UD5 rev 2.0 has the marvell 9128 controller which only has pci-e 1x where as the X58A-OC has the Marvell 9182 controller which has pci-e 2x and it allows for FULL Sata3 speeds.
