What drive ar we talking about and what is the setup. What makes you think that you should get 6Gb/sec?
I have the latest driver version 6 For my crucial C300 128GB on the spec of the drive sayes it will run at 6GB opposed to 3GB's I just bought new mother board which should run at 6GB hence why I choose the crucial drive over the other brands I was just a bit disapointed with the test I run as should get closer to 350+ I am all very new to this building PC so just wanted to make sure I had done every thing right

Thanks for you help in advance

I have no complaints with the speed just wanted to check I was doing everything right I read a review somewhere on net and it did bench marking and said that with 6GB MB increased the transfer speed. I am new to all this so i really dont know any better just got the moding bug thanks to this site! And i can ask stupid questions on here without getting shot down in flames like would in pc shop

Plus, the 355MB/sec is best case wih very large records. But the OS usually uses small 4K blocks where the R/W speed is a lot lower (check on any of the Atto measurements in this thread).

PS: there are no stupid questions. You are doing fine.

No problem. Sorry I went to edit my message and I deleted it. I can be a complete noob sometimes!!!

The Crucial C300 is a great drive, and the results from your test prove that.

Ian, your motherboard manual will tell you which ports are 6Gb/s as well as how to set up your ports in bios as well as how to install raid/ahci drivers. I am not familiar with your MB (just barely familiar with my own). If you don't have one you can download a copy of your manual here. Just don't get caught up in the theoretical speed and the actual speed. The 6GB/s is only in labs, not here in the real world. Your speeds are not bad, but like WHS was making reference to, on a boot drive access times are probably more important.

PCIE SSD Install

I will be honored to share what I have to do to install and upload the entire Op system along with moving my files from one drive to another. First off I have to take it to work and let my buddies touch it so they can ewe and awe over it! LOL Then I will post what I did to do the install. From what I read is that the USB drive is critical. The ones that gave bad reviews did not know what to do to install it properly! AS most of my PC use is video application... I suck really bad at gaming! No matter what I try! I excel at ripping and hacking for BD, DVD video and sat systems! Scripting....That is another post not mentioned.
Anyways I took 1/2 a day off and the wife out for a shopping spree today. You know shopping for a man is like waiting for dial up to upload a web page! It just takes and feels forever! And to add taking care of a 2.5 year old just adds the anchor being dragged. I know this is off the subject but WTF! Why try it on if you have no intention of buying it?

Sorry to rant! And happy valentines day!

Thanks for the advice I will get my friend to check it as I really not a clue what I am doing there! + I cant get into my Bios setting as I have a Bluetooth Keyboard and I guess that comes on after boot up :-(

Before anyone looks at a PCIe SSD, please make sure that your MB will be able to boot from the PCIe. I know mine is supposed to so we shall see, there are some that apparently are not capable but I have not researched those.

This is a post from the OCZ forum noting the steps to set up prior to the install of the Revodrive. I am expecting it this Thursday but will not install it until Friday after work. My coworkers want to look at it first. We are all into computers and they have started me into gaming.

From Tony, OCZ staff:
You need to follow a dedicated install procedure, the boards get confused on boot order and do what you are seeing in some cases.

1 make sure you remove any other HDD from the system

2 Go to bios disable 3rd and 2nd boot device, disable boot to other devices and set 1st boot device to HDD

3 set hdd boot order to add in device or revo if it is listed

4 set onboard sata controller to ide ( this is a proven method but you can hack reg to ahci later)

5 disable all other sata/raid controllers on the system

6 consider installing win7 off USB, DVDrom does work though

now save and exit.

7 On the reboot hit f10 or F8 or esc or whatever brings up the boot order menu...pick the USB or DVDrom and boot to it.

8 Install the driver for revo as per normal and let it get to the 10sec count down timer

9 when it reboots wait for the 1st bios splash screen, power the system off, remove the power to the PSU and let the system drain off for 2 minutes, remove the install DVD or remove the USB drive and any other drive you used to load the revo driver.

10 power back up, again hit the key to bring up the boot menu for your board and choose to boot to Revo

11 on the next reboot just hit the boot menu key, no need to power off.

12 this should get you to windows, make sure revo is still listed as the only boot device in bios.

13a if you now want to swap to ahci do the reg hack listed here in the guide sections of the ssd forums

Anyone reading this...this is NOT the only way to install revo, its the way we found during beta test that worked the best. We have installed in ahci mode, we have installed with other drives in the system...this is just a proven safe way that should get you to windows desktop.

Be warned though, many boards have limited PCIE storage support, some may have more issues than others. Some also get VERY confused by all the boot roms for raid controllers etc so this is why you need to disable near everything you can.
