  1. Jus to give you some background info: My Configuration: Core i7 920, Asus Rampage Extreme II, 6 GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 RAM, Kingstone HyperX 240 GB SSD My motherboard only supports SATA II connections. I purchased Kingstone HyperX SSD a few months ago. This drive is rated at around 500MB/s R/W I was only getting speeds around 260 MB/s R/W through my mortherborads SATA II connection Was looking for a controller card which was bootable, and could provide better speeds close to a SATA III connections So after some research and playing around with a few controller cards, I finally purchased a SATA III controller card which is working like a charm for me ! Here is where I purchased this card: It is only $15 dollars ! It is bootable, only adds a few seconds to the boot time and my SSD drive now hits 380MB/s at read and 350MB/s at write (way better than 260 MB/s R/W on a SATA II). Here is some benchmarks I ran: I am curious to hear your opinion since many of the users purchasing a controller card to get better speed did not get what they where looking for.
