Windows 7: Poor Performance and driver failing on 970

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Poor SSD Performance
After having rather high hopes for SSD Performance...I'm disappointed. I'm glad I got a test unit, because if I would've shelled out the cabbage for this, I'd be a little PO'd. I have an 8300 Quad Core 2.5 Intel with 4GB of RAM running W7 Pro 64 Bit. Instead of trying to clone the old drive, I...
