SLOW/Faulty 840 Pro 256GB on M5A97 EVO R2.0
Posted 02 March 2013 - 04:40 PM
Is this a faulty drive? I think it must be as I have tried in different motherboard ports, tried different cables etc.
My old Intel SSDSA2M080G2GC works fine and gets approx 200MB/s without a problem.
If anyone can suggest anything before I RMA the drive and go and buy an OCZ vector tomorrow I would be grateful.

What does the Samsung Magician software diags tell you?
it takes about 5mins and doesn't even seem to start the benchmark either that or it's really slow. Seems to take ages to even figure that it's on 6GB/s connection.

This is my intel on AS SSD
Intel Anvil (AMD drivers)
Intel Anvil (Windows drivers - storageahci)
This is a spare drive - on the same cables on the same board.

If you get the same problems on two different computers with more than one cable it is probably the drive.
Be sure your cables are rated for SATA 6Gb/sec.
