Windows 7: Any idea what I can do to improve my SSD's performance

Any idea what I can do to improve my SSD's performance

I ran a benchmark on this particular computer and it complained that my SSD behaved like it was not connected to a SATA3 port which was correct and I changed it.

I ran the benchmark again and here are the results:

Asrock B75M-GL Performance Results - UserBenchmark

It is complaining that my ssd is running far below expectations.

Seems fine to me but what do I know?

I would appreciate any suggestion for what I can do to make it better.

System specs are attached.

Thanks everyone.

Looking at the benchmark results page the thing that really stands out to me is this line:

"Actual performance vs. expectations."

Do you think that your SSD is slow or is it only because a random benchmark with little to no basis in any quantifiable data (judging by the above line) is telling you that this is the case and therefore your expectations have been lowered as a result?

Also two of the three "benchmarks" for the SSD return values well into the "best" range and it is the third value alone that is dragging it into the "worst" range. Also worth noting that there is no middle ground between best and worst either.

My take on as very quick read through is that the benchmark is worthless but I may be proven wrong.

Thanks very much, Tranquil Hegemo. I tend to agree with you.

This was the second Windows 7 computer that I built and I was a bit of a greenhorn. That's the reason that I hooked the SSD up to SSD2.0. Now that that is corrected, I am happy with this computer. Never really noticed the difference in performance.

I'll leave this unsolved for a while but I am content with it.

Many thanks for the post.

I've never heard of that benchmark.

A better idea would be to run more widely used SSD benchmarks such as CrystalDiskMark, ATTO, or AS and compare your personal results to those of others who are using the same SSD as you are using.

Regardless--I wouldn't much worry about SSD benchmarks. I've never been able to tell in actual usage that any of my SSDs is faster than another. I'd be more concerned about price, reliability, capacity, customer service, etc.

Just by coincidence, I have the same SSD as you--mine is the 128 GB capacity model. Your 256 GB model may be a bit faster than mine.

Here are my benchmarks:

Thanks for the tips.

I really appreciate them.

I will try your benchmarks.

Hi,
Here's another mx100 with win-10 on it
This is an original the first was a replacement/ refurbished Crucial sent back that died with Linux on it
Pretty close the first is getting replaced with a samsung 850 evo 250gb this weekend
