I already tried default MS AHCI driver. No dice... I will try to install the driver provided by Anthony. Unfotunately I've read forum posts stating that doesnt fix this issue. But will try anyway.

I also will try to switch SATA cables when I get home. Too bad nvidia chipsets cannot handle an SSD as they should. Shame on you, nvidia...

SSDs need to be connected to the SATA 6Gb/sec ports on the mobo. AHCI is the correct SATA function......

If your board is only equipped with SATA 3Gb/sec ports the SSD will run at half advertised speed.
2 options available: upgrade the board or live with the speed.....

My SSD works at half speed compared to SATA 3Gb/sec limits. Not the advertised SATA3 speeds. I can see it's working on SATA 1.5Gb/sec mode.

Motherboard upgrade time. SSDs are 6gb/s drives. They're backwards compatible but there's no guarantee what speed you'll see. See if there's a SATA driver update available otherwise if you have a need for speed then buy some new gear..

You're giving false information. The drive should be running at SATA II speeds.

I'll keep that in mind in the event there is a personal attack. I follow your own mantra, and call it as I see them, and to steal the old I.T. addage...throwing money at the problem isn't always the solution.

Now, to keep it on topic, the drive should run at half it's rated speed, yes, but that still should be SATA II. Telling someone to buy a new board, which potentially could lead to plenty of other new hardware, might not be feasible.

Let's try to solve the issue first.

I don't need SATA3 speeds but I want at least to be able to run the SSD at SATA2 speed as it should be. Currently it's somehow stuck @SATA1

And I don't want to get a new mobo since it would mean to get a new CPU and RAM too...
