You should post your AS SSD benchmark in the Show us your SSD performance thread.

It's a bit low for those specs.

Check your BIOS settings, SATA, AHCI, etc.

If your BIOS is set to IDE I would change it to AHCI.

There are a couple of ways, easiest is AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 after OS install.

First time I tried it (before finding this great tutorial), guess I was lucky, did quite a bit of searching.

I just loaded the AHCI driver, it asked for a re-boot, so re-booted, went to BIOS and changed it to AHCI, save & exit.
Started up with AHCI enabled.
Noticed a nice little performance increase.

My main reason was to get my external HDDs to hot swap, worked just as advertised, wanted to take them out after backup was done without having to re-boot.

Let me know how it goes.......
