    I have a gigabyte x58ud5 and a Samsung evo 500gb ssd. Are speeds below what I should be getting and do my bios settings look ok? Should bottom "onboard sata/ide" be set to disabled?
    I switched to AHCI without reinstalling windows a while back. I'll do a fresh installed if that's what I need to do.
    I am plugged into the intel controller. 20200108_194139.jpg 20200108_194429.jpg

    Is it older SATA? You won’t get the full bandwidth throughout of the SSD with older SATA.

    The SATA 3GB ie SATA 300 port(s) on the X58 are holding you back.

    Day to day though, won't make too much difference so I wouldn't worry.

    You're right. I only noticed he because I got a low score in passmark bench test.
