    Very nice! Scores quite a bit higher than my Plextor M3 128GB. Wonder how much of the difference is CPU dependent?

    Your scores should be higher than mine with that drive, neil. Anvil's is showing that you aren't running the drive on AMD's sata drivers. I've got my ssd on amd's ahci drivers because I had issues with the raid drivers and it is fast. Maybe you should try that?

    with SSD life its showing as working ...weather or not it is No idea

    No havent down clocked the CPU at all I pretty well run it at 4.5-4.8ghz all the time.. the bench was done at 4.5ghz

    Im using 10.8 Intel Raid drivers From what I understand AMD is going to be slower

    The ASUS board that I was using crapped out on me. I had an ASRock board sitting here so I installed it instead. (A55 Pro3)
    Ran all of the tests again and virtually the same scores.
    Went to ASRock's webpage for this board and got every driver for it from them and installed them.

    It has two SATA-III 6Gbs ports and all the rest are SATA-II 3Gbs ports. I put the SSD and the WD 1TB Black on the SATA-III ports, and the ASUS DVD Burner on a SATA-II port.
    The SATA-III Controller is made by ASMedia and that driver is installed, working, and present in device manager. But in the Anvil benchmark it's recorded as "MSAHCI?"
    The ASMedia controller is AHCI capable and not RAID enabled, so it is running in AHCI mode.
    Tried another power supply and it made no difference either.

    My benches with this drive are not so good, but the system is very responsive and has no discernible problems that I can find. It's great having an SSD that has some headroom on it for a change. (240G Playing musical chairs with your programs on a small SSD is a PITA at best.
    I have a sneaky suspicion that I could put this Mushkin drive into my Intel based i7-2600K system and see faster benches with it, and I probably will before too long.
    Today I'll try to relax and just do a little gaming. I'm behind in that.

    RAID Trim support is supposed to be come a reality with the next Intel driver release. IDK about support on the AMD side.
