Lava King, I'm not real familiar with your CPU and board, but IF you can use the Intel iastor.sys SATA driver the score and performance would be better.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have to look into that.

Bit OT but am looking at swapping out a basic 840 for either the EVO or the 840 Pro. Now the differences in the performance are really quite close however the price is VERY different the Pro being $60 more than the EVO so any ides on what I should get?. Not a gamer or OC racer so the reason is mainly my boot and general running speeds.

Well, I have both and can recommend the EVO John. With the Magician software you can use Rapid Mode on the EVO to boost performance. Rapid Mode is a 1GB RAM Disk which uses RAM as a disk cache.

I don't think you'll see a difference in real world performance going from the 840 to the EVO or Pro. I wouldn't upgrade just for the sake of upgrading if it were me.

No well I had two reasons really one was a bit more speed in the Ivy if that is possible if not doesn't matter, and the the drive coming out will probably be used to swap out the SanDisk Extreme in the laptop. If I don't do that it will keep for the next build if there is going to be another a the Z77 boards are very scarce right now and watching the problems with the Z87 stuff I don't really want to go there.

I think you are right. The real life performance will be probably very close with either of those options. The OS performance is ruled by the access time and anything around 0.1ms is as fast.
