With SATA2 specs and Samsung 840 you should see 240-270 MB/s speeds.

Is your 840 Evo or Pro? Did you update to the latest firmware?

Ran Trimtest again and it looks like it works

Had a SSD programme that helped me tick the boxes in terms of SSD Setup, but I don't see any improvements...

Guess the next step for my rig is to get her a new motherboard?


Thanks for the help guys!

Much appreciated

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

we're trying to solve a nonexistent problem.
performance is not as expected is not a precise diagnosis.
what is the purpose of the computer and where is it lacking?
are programs loading slowly while the cpu is not maxing out a single core?

apparently someone just put my sata II vs III sentiment to the test here:
