Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance 2

Boy that's a good question and I'm not sure. This is the first mobo/bios/ssd that I could put into AHCI mode. This was a clone of an install to a Vertex III via Apricorn software and link which came off without a hitch. Maybe I need to get the Samsung software out that came with the drive and see what I can do to correct ?

Running Samsung Magician software and it's handled some needed things.

If the alignment is still off you can try this. SSD - Fix Misalignment

If you have an Intel system try the Iastor driver for it.

Alignment is very important, you should be getting an ASSSD total score of 100 point more than what you have.
If you can't get it aligned from the tutorial, consider a clean install.


New information on the Samsung 840 Pro issues.

Update on Samsung SSD 840/840 Pro Failures

Quote:
In our review of Samsung's SSD 840 Pro I noted that my drive died shortly after I completed testing. Samsung sent me a replacement, which also stopped working (although it still pulled current) after a couple of days. Kristian's Samsung SSD 840 review sample shared a similar fate.

I spoke with Samsung about this problem a couple of weeks ago and was told that there was a bug in the pre-production firmware (version 2B0Q/5B0Q for 840 Pro/840) loaded on our drives. All retail samples should ship with a newer firmware revision (3B0Q/6B0Q) that have this bug fixed. To confirm what firmware revision is on your drive, look at the end of the hardware id string for the SSD in Device Manager.

Samsung sent me an 840 Pro with the updated firmware and so far I haven't had any issues. I'm trying to retrace my steps in bricking the drive and things are looking good thus far. As always, if things change I will update you all.

Alan, your alignment is still not right. With a clean install that should normally not happen. Why don't you predefine an aligned partition on the SSD and install into this. Use cmd of the installation disc.

Diskpart
List disk
Select disk n (where n is the number that was given for your SSD in List disk)
Clean
Create partition primary align=1024
Format fs=ntfs quick
Active
Exit

+1 either that or use Paragon migrate, it will do it for you.

Yea, I know Alan. I did too for a long time, but found it's the best $20 I ever spent. In fact I used it 3 times last night switching SSDs from one machine to another. It took me an hour. A lot better than 2 clean installs. It's also the best backup you can get.
