Why does my SSD suck?

I wrote about my process of enabling AHCI here.

And here is the increased speed I got after finally getting it done.

Why is it do slow?

Is the SSD plugged into the Port O?

That's the Sata 3.

Hmm, let me take a look...

I always assumed there's a 0 port before 1...but it doesn't look like there is one.

According to the manual snip you posted, all of the ports on your motherboard are SATA-2 (3Gb/s).
So unless there is an add-on SATA controller that provides SATA-3 (6Gb/s) functionality then you are confined to SATA-2 speeds using that board.

Typically, that is a safe assumption.

I understand I don't have 6GB/s support...I guess what I'm wondering is if those speeds are indicative of 3GB/s.

It just seems like it should be faster, as it isn't much faster than my regular, platter drives.

Sorry I missed the fact that you MOBO only supports Sata 11.

If and when you upgrade that board to Sata 111, you will see a big difference in speed.

I just ran a speed test on one of my hdds ( that is plugged into Sata 111) and yours are quite a bit higher, even though you only have Sata 11, so I would say you're getting correct speeds for that board.

I have only had one legitimate response. The rest has been trolls sending me links to click under some bs guise to confirm if it's the same product they're looking for. Or they ask for other info that they don't need to make a purchase. Man it's really aggravating.
