Did the manufacture of the drive say it is bad to benchmark its ssd or did some bozzo in a forum say so?
I originally sought to test the speed myself since I couldn't find anywhere where this info was displayed. I glanced over a few random posts from different forums that came up on a google search. Several times I saw people saying not to run benchmarks on a SSD because it diminishes the drive. I'll try to post specific links later.
Are you sure you have the ssd plugged into the port to run hard drives and not in a port to run cd-roms. Some motherboards are setup that way, check the motherboard manual to see which ports run at 6 gigs.
I'm pretty sure it is plugged in right. The manual shows a diagram of 4 main plugin points and recommends this configuration for 6gb/s devices   [x] . That's exactly where I have the two HD's plugged in, one on the top row and one on the bottom. I have the optical disc plugged in the 3 gb/s like this [x]. Is that all you should have to do to set it right? Just plug it in the right port and it should set it to 6gb/s? No additional configuration required?
It might actually be set right. I just don't know how to check. Is there any easy way to see what the bios or computer is recognizing the drive speed as/
As for drive 0 verses drive 1, I don't know of any way to fix that other than starting from scratch.
That would be fine to me I just would need to know how to determine which numbers will be assigned to the drives and configure them so they get the number you want?
