Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

I don't know the correct answer, but I didn't. It seems like the Marvell drivers would have to be installed for the ports to work. After that, you should be able to use whatever ahci driver you want. At least, that's my opinion.

Oki, but how if i leave the marvell driver installed does the system know which driver to use after i´ve installed IRST?

It seems, that it uses the last driver installed. At least my system works that way. But, you can change drivers threoug device manager, you just need to know where it is. Most drivers are in C/windows/system32/drivers, but I think IRST installs somewhere else.

Oki, i´m new to this "change driver i device manager" but then you say that i should first try to just install the IRST driver and see if there is any change in speed, and if the system dont use the IRST i should try changing driver or uninstalling the Marvell driver?

No, don't uninstall the marvell. Just leave it alone. If it uses the IRST iaStor driver and you don't like it, just click the 'roll back driver' button in device manager properties. That should change you to where you are now. But, really, you are getting good speed out of youe SSD. You rarely get the advertised speed, no matter how it is set up. Yours seems to be doing quite well as it is.

OK, then i will try to just install the IRST driver when i get home after work, then test to see if it uses it and if there is any increase in speed(what i´m hoping), othervice i will do driver rollback as you advice me to :-) and go back to the Marvell one´s. Thanks for the kind words about my SSD speed but as i am a "speed nerd" and this is my first SSD i will try to get the most out of it :-P also i like to try to do my best to fix things ;-) especially when it comes to computers. I will let you know how it goes. Many thanks in advance for all the help :-D

If you did it and it worked for you then it should also work for me, at least i´m hoping it will

If it doesnt work i´m egeer to try reinstalling OS and then just install IRST after clean system install. But we will see how it goes.

By the way, what is your speed on your SSD? Did it get better with IRST?

I have 4 SSDs, so not sure which you want. The numbers do come out a little better with iaStor, but can't say that it is noticable. For the sake of discussion, don't get too caught up in ste tests. The more you run, the slower it will get. And, the numbers really have no bearing on real world usage. I have an Intel X25 80GB. I have run AS SSD on it and it was scores as low as 330, have later run the same test and got as high as 440. In actual usage I could tell no difference in how they were performing. I am currently using a 64GB Crucial M4 SSD. Here is the only test I have run on it.
