Windows 7: Corsair Force 3 120gb SSD issues.

Corsair Force 3 120gb SSD issues.

Hello,

I've tried to ask on the Corsair forums but haven't yet had a response, so thought I'd try here. My Force 3 was unusable until I flashed it with the latest firmware, but now seems fine. My only slight concern is the performance on the benchmark tests. Is it normal for such fluctuation in the "used" sectors of a SSD?

Cheers in advance,

Matt.

Sure there weren't any other accesses to the SSD during this test? It's the only explanation I can think of.

The OS is installed on this drive, could that explain it? Is there another benchmark test piece of software that you'd suggest I use?

That could explain it indeed, with how much Windows tends to access the disk in the background. You're already running pretty much the best HD benchmark tool there is, so I'd simply suggest running the same test one or two more times and comparing results - try not to have anything else running at the same time and let Windows settle down for a minute before you run another test.

I don't have a SSD but your test is not like the others posted here. All the others the blue trace is fairly straight across the top of the graph. Their access times is usually 0.1ms, whereas yours is 0.229.
They all have the OS installed on the SSD.

I've made sure that nothing is accessing the drive whilst the test is running and I'm getting exactly the same results each time, with the dips coming in the same places. I've run the health checker and that comes back fine with no bad cells. Does the HDtune pro tester show a slower access time for areas of the drive that are in use?

Stupid question but do you have a 6gbps sata3 lead attached? Seen one or 2 people make a similar mistake.

Yeah, I've got it connected with the right lead to the correct SATA port.

Ill test mine when I get home later tonight, as I've never benchmarked mine. Mine is also my main windows drive.
