I reverted to 309 without issues BUT let the reverter beware!!!!!!
It appears the moral is that Crucial is not the gem it was once thought.

Thank you for the info everyone. I will attempt to put 0309 onto it soon and if that fails I will start an RMA as Gary mentioned.

Gary, I'm still undecided about putting the workstation online for a driver scan. And I'm not all that familiar with drivers. Are you suggesting that the Intel iastor.sys driver should replace the Marvell drivers and/or the C602 chipset drivers, or just added to the mix?

Recently I downloaded, xfer'd, and installed the latest Marvell SATA drivers and the Intel drivers for the C602 chipset on this Asus board (most recent from Asus website). And I also don't yet know much about the new C602 chipset used on this server board.

Below are screenshots from my sys32 driver folder and from Asus Updates installed. I'm not sure if the highlighted drivers installed now might supersede the iastor.sys driver you mention here, or simply be the wrong drivers and iastor.sys might be better.
Thanks,
Mike

Yes garuda it appears the Intel SATA driver, iastor, is indeed installed. It is likely you don't have the SSD plugged into an Intel SATA port. Usually the Intel chipset will control 2 of the SATA ports and Marvell or another 3rd party the others.
In Disk Management does the SSD show as disk 0?

Gary, I hope I didnít mislead you, regarding your attempt to help me improve my performance. If I understand from your inquiry about disk 0, Iím assuming you are referring to the boot C-drive. But in this thread here, I was introducing a PCIe SATA expansion card I just purchased and wanted to share my discover in the performance comparison (SATA vs PCIe SATA) with anyone on this forum interested in this PCIe Card expansion for their system. But it doesnít involve the C-drive; I just needed more SATA ports for drive expansion in my PC case, and happened to buy a SIIG card. These SSDs I compared here were on random available 6G ports, but not yet sure whether they were on native Intel or 3rd party Marvell.

And you may have assumed it was my boot drive, hence your suggestion for C-drive improvement with the iastor.sys driver. Sorry if I mislead you. However, you made me think about my C-drive performance some more. That is, I canít remember if I put my C-drive (disk0, Intel 520-series 240GB) on the Intel port or the Marvell port; and also this begs the question, is one port faster than another based on its driver. Do we know if one (6Gb/s) port is faster than the other? Native Intel vs Marvell? If so, I want to put my fastest SSDs on the faster ports -- especially the two cache drives; and of course the C-drive. Let me know what you think.

Because I plan to rewire all those SATA ports/SSDs over again --- (identifying specific Marv vs Intel; and 3G vs 6G ports) --- so I can label each cable and match it to the port IDs along with the SSD serial#s/makes. So when I get these system messages about certain drives, I can distinguish exactly which drives the system is referring to. So Iím glad you brought this up, even if we may have been talking about different SSDs/ports.

Thanks again,
Mike

Yup Mike, I was mistaken on the drive arrangement, you didn't mislead me, I just forgot it was mounted on the SIIG SATA card.

I once was advised to uninstall my Intel SATA driver due to a BSOD, it wasn't the problem though. While I ran the SSD on a msahci (w7) SATA driver my AS SSD score dropped 2/3. I didn't really notice any change....but I like the best score.

Yes I would put the fastest drive on the fastest port. If you have 2 Intel ports use them for your C;\ and main storage drive.
