Oh well.
Can't help those kind too much.
Common, I can almost guarantee that if any suggestions are given, my System Specs wouldn't be required. Why is everyone hung up on System Spec, most of the users on this board offer, so I'm one of the few that don't, why get yourself all tied in a knot or not help over that, it really doesn't make sense, even if you think it does. Offer a suggestion to help with a problem, and see where it leads. It sound like a car having a flat and you need the name of the tires to suggest a solution, does that make sense ?
You know, it would help if we knew what size tire you needed to replace it, and what style tires you had so the replacement would match the others.

We like to help those who cooperate. If not, you're on your own.

Believe it or not, it does help with many issues, even if it doesn't make sense to you. A certain graphics card, motherboard or OEM may have a known issue that someone knows about and could fix easily.
But the choice is yours, as it is ours to help or not.
For those that don't want to cooperate, I'll find someone else that will, better use of my time.

I've decided to add system spec, I hope we can now lay this to rest and get onto my question at hand.

Windows 8 WEI rating system goes to 9.9.

Where as W7 goes to 7.9 WEI.

So your scores look normal as best as I can tell.
You could post on our eightforums and see what they may think.> Windows 8 Forums

Nice rig, info does help.

Some SSDs need to be taken care of in different ways, depending on the controller and nand used.
If we knew the brand, we can find the controller type, we could possible help speed it up a bit.
SandForce controllers are different than Intel or JMicron, there are different things that can be done.
Also the age of the SSD, at a certain age, actually number of writes, it might need to be secure erased to re-gain performance.
Another is firmware update, depending on the SSD brand and model.

Let us know.

Also recent Intel SSDs have Sandforce, then Samsung makes their own and Crucial runs with Marvell.

Just tested the ASRock XfastRAM RAM disk for fun:

Name:  RAM DISK V2.0.28 4.7GHZ 1866 10-9-9-26-1T.jpg
Views: 4
Size:  75.0 KB


BTW, when using a SSD, it's highly recommend to map windows "temp" and "tmp" environment variable to a RAM disk. Same for Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome temp folder. Make the system goes faster AND prevent degradation by avoiding multiple small writes to the SSD. Contrary to other RAM disk software I have tested, XfastRAM RAM disk configuration interface can do all this automatically!
