That does not look too bad. You apparently had something else running when you took the HD Tune test.

Just did a quick search on your SSD, seems to be some issues with the low benchmark scores.

Even the Corsair site review posted them a little low, Corsair Labs Report: Force Series F40 SSD.

Check the Corsair forum F60 Disgusting Performance, search the site for more info.
Looks like everyone is waiting for a firmware update.


Have you updated your BIOS?
Some issues mentioned about Corsair SSDs and Gigabyte MOBO.

Check for new SSD firmware from Corsair.

You will get better performance if using AHCI instead of IDE.

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

A more thorough review and comparison of benchmarks can be found at the AnandTech SSD Bench site.

4 x F60's in Raid 0

Well I've been real happy with my Corsair F60's, picked up 4 of them and I'm still waiting on my raid controller card but the intel onboard raid controller is doing very well. I would highly recommend these SSD's.

Looks good, four of them has got to be fast.

Nice set up.

I am still puzzled with this benchmark program. Why are the 4K reads always so slow and how come the access time for reads is a lot slower than for writes. (see post 714 as example)

Part of the problem with Paulpicks21 setup is that he is using IDE mode instead of AHCI. That /kills/ the 4k multi threaded read mode at least. Not sure how much impact o nthe plain read write scrores there is but it seems pretty common that ide mode does not work for multi threaded disk reads.

For me, switching to AHCI really did bring up the 4k benchmark numbers. The other scores didn't move much at all. In real life use through, i have been totally unable to quantify any change from switching from IDE to AHCI...other than the couple of seconds that I lose at boot time now.

Ok so I have a new motherboard being delivered tomorrow as the current one is very cheap.

I know how to enable AHCI in windows now.

Apart from that , where is the best place to plug the SSD on the new mobo?

And I keep hearing about RAID , is this something I need to know about that will benefit the SSD?

Heres the ports on the new mobo -

5 xSATA 3 Gb/s ports
Intel® Matrix Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10
JMicron® JMB361 SATA & PATA controllers:
1 x Ultra DMA 133 / 100 / 66 for up to 2 PATA devices
1 x External SATA 3Gb/s port (SATA On-the-Go)
Silicon Image Sil5723 (Drive Xpert technology):
2 x SATA 3Gb/s ports

Thanks for the help guys

Paul.

I don't think it matters where on the mobo you plug it in. You can always arrange the boot sequence in the BIOS.
Raid is complex and I don't think it gives you a lot of benefit for the SSD as system disk. It shows impressive data transfer rates in the test programs, but your access time will not be any better - and the access time of the SSD gives you the punch. The amount of data that the system reads/writes is small and a fast data transfer rate will not impact the overall performance a lot. Maybe installing a big program would be a little faster - but how often do you do that.
