Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.

That won't help.  That's a Marvell based sata controller and they're rubbish!  You should use the same sata controller that your other brand SSD is hooked up to.  Even if it's only sata 2, it will likely perform better in the real world.

 

Having said that, the drive speeds look decent enough.  I'd be leaning more towards software clutter more than a drive issue or drive configuration problem.  Check your startup programs and disable ones you don't need (msconfig in older Windows, Task Manager in Windows 8 and above.)  If you're not sure how to do this reply back and I'm sure we can provide more details or linsk to websites to help.  If you do know what you're doing with this kind of thing then also check out the sysinternals program 'autoruns' for even more control - but I wouldn't recommend it if you;re new to this sort of thing.

Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.

hi, im a bit confused when you talk about the Sata controller, is that hardware or a driver? and how would i change it to the one that the other brand ssd is using?, also i have some experience of disabling startup programs using msconfig and task manager, i dont have that many things running that should effect the boot time but i can try disabling some more things, ill download autoruns.

Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.

It is about hardware controllers, your mobo has two of them. SATA connectors marked SATA6G_E1/2 are driven by ASMedia controller. Intel Z97 SATA connectors (preffered) are marked SATA6G_1-6.

Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.

i think ive managed to swap the sata cable over to the intel connector, the Crystaldisk result seems to be a bit better but the sequential write speed still seems really low? i dont think write speed would effect boot time and app load time though?

 

this is where the satas are plugged into now

IntelController1.jpg

 

ive literally disabled everything i can in startup using task manager.

 

this is the new crystaldisk reading

i dont know what else to do now, it is a tad faster at starting up, but it used to be so fast. maybe i need to try a fresh install of windows.Robot Sad

 

do you think its worth updating firmware?

Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.

right click the drive in 'this pc' and go to properties

select the tools tab and go to optimise

optimise the drive

 

this will take a few secodns and is basically sending a trim command over all the free space on the drive.

 

See if that sorts the write speed.

Re: SSD running sluggish, boot time nearly 2 mins.
