Boy, I was really worried that I gave you the wrong advice. I was really worried. But, at least you have it where it needs to be. I do not believe that the IRST drivers will work on a Marvell port. But, if your Intel ports are in ahci mode, I would install it for them. IRST is Intel's raid driver but it also contains the Intel ahci driver, iaStor. I don't use raid, but have it installed on my computer. With the Marvell ports you have on your board, I think you have the best driver you can use.

EDIT: sorry I didn't tell you the easy way first.

Also, with SSDs you should not run a lot of benchmark tests. It will slow them down.

I´m sorry i couldnt get back sooner but i had to eat first so no worries, it worked and i believe i can feel Windows responding better
Then i will stay on this drive for my SSD.
I cant thank you enought for all your help!!!
As i have a SATA2 HDD installed perhaps i will install IRST to help it along abit, if it helps.
My 4kb read really jumped up and i guess it´s that one i feel in Windows. It jumped up from ~19 to 30+

Ok, then its good that i make screendumps and save them
But i think i will in a while eraze my SSD using HDDErase that i´ve read about beeing good for getting a SSD to it´s original speed again, as i have benched a few times already.

That's good news, I hope it works better for you. The IRST driver benchmarks a little faster, but I have used it both ways and couldn't tell much of a difference. But I am using the iaStor driver now.

I don't think that is necessary. You have a new drive and trim will take care of it. So a secure erase isn't necessary really.

EDIT: when I said slow it down, I meant temporarially. Trim will fix that. That is why you switched drivers.

It should be enabled. RAM is MUCH faster than the fastest SSD. And don't worry about write degradation. Your SSD will last for 10 years.
