I am getting the feeling there is nothing wrong with your SSD and it is performing correctly. I think there is just some kind of issue with WEI not reading the drive correctly.

Here is a screen shot of an old Crucial M4 64gb SSD I have in an AMD system in my lounge. The M4 only has 6GB of free space on it, it scores around the same as you in AS SSD test yet mine scores 7.9 in WEI.

If the PC is performing fine then I would just try and forget about it Bob, it is only a score after all.

Yes, the PC is running just fine. It has been, with the exception of the GPU, which has been corrected.
Should I do the AHCI driver update or just leave it ?

Well that is a tough decision. I would update the driver.

I agree with Dude, update the driver, if it is the same one, it shouldn't make any difference. You're running 1.3.4.0 if there is a later one than that get it, if not, install it over again. Also, see if there are updated chipset drivers. I don't know how to check what you have now, but I don't think it hurts anything to install the same version, if that's the case. Also, on the firmware. Is there a later version than what you have on your SSD, but earlier than the one that causes trouble? If so, update to that.

After that, I'm out of ideas. The figures say that the AMD should be 5-8% below Intel numbers. Try this, open an elevated command prompt and run winsat disk. Post a screenshot please. I think most of us are out of ideas except RMA. OCZ technical support may have some ideas, but you will get better results if you call them on the phone with the test results on the 3 programs suggested. But, the first question they will ask is are you running the latest firmware. If they say update it, tell them only if they are going to replace it if it gets bricked.

Thanks Dude. I was only giving the same advice I would do. Of course, I admit, tech reps normally do not like me. I tend to know more about their products than they do. Plus, an OCZ tech rep is not going to admit they are offering a flawed firmware update.

COMPUTIAC, just one more suggestion and this is stretching it a little. Download all the current motherboard drivers from Asus website and put them on a USB drive or CD. Run sysprep (Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer) read the instructions carefully, You should not lose anything, but backup beforehand just in case. It is typically used to transfer an OS to new hardware so what it does is strips out all the drivers and puts you back to very close to a clean install, just with programs installed. Personally, I would use this as a last resort, but I have done it several times and if you follow the directions and read the info and warning parts, it will work perfect.
