I've got 2 Samsung 840 Pro's 128 gb in RAID0 on my MSI board. I have a Samsung 840 Pro 256 on the secondary SATA III controller (Asmedia). The Asmedia only benches the thing to around 340 seq. Is there any add on SATA III cards that would do better?

I guess we'll just have to wait until Intel includes more SATAIII ports in future MBs.
Sure, but they came back slower than the Asmedia.
Ahhh!! You make an excellent point ... (even if you didn't mean to )
I found the Apricorn Velocity Micro x2 which is a Pcie (x2) card that your SSD fits in to. It needs an x2 Pcie x16 slot either at x2 or x4. I tried it on my MSI Z77 board and it works great. I have speeds of 503 and 485 for seq.
Sequental speeds aren't the problem but 4k & 4k-64Thrd are and that's where you'll use the drive most of the time.I have speeds of 503 and 485 for seq.
Old Hippie I'm beginning to see your point. Question though, if I can run an x4 add on card does that get me anything faster?
