In BIOS I made my PCIE go from X1 Mode to X8 Mode and it made a HUGE difference in my controller card performance.

My entire system is SATA II and after my SSD SATA II died I purchase an SSD SATA III and it works great and very fast thru the SATA II ports on the MOBO. Then I had the idea of using all that bandwidth that comes thru the PCIE slots so I purchased a controller card that came with 2 SATA III ports. Updated the drivers and...............it was slow to achieve it's max bandwidth, which it did but it took much longer than it would have plugged into the MOBO.

So I made the BIOS change and of course other O'C changes and BANG!!! The thing RAN up to it's max bandwidth so I was wondering if there are any other BIOS options that could help me increase the bandwidth/speed of the PCIE slot my controller card is plugged into. Specs below.

Win 7 64-bit
ASUS M4A79 Deluxe
AMD Phenom 3.2 BE O'C'd to 3.6
Radeon 4890 HD w/1GB RAM
3 1 TB WD Hard Drives
1 External Hitachi Hard Drive
1 ASMedia Controller Card
1 OCZ Vertex 3 Sata III SSD
