Pros: solid construction
Cons: still slow, returning drive
Other Thoughts: Dear Kingston. I've verified that in my BIOS that I am running my SATA 3 ports in AHCI mode and I've verified it in Windows as well via the registry @ HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\start (should read 0, it does). Like I said before, when no data was loaded the drive performs around 300mb\s. When I load data it performs much slower.
I've also stated in my previous review that I was using the AMD 990FX chipset. My motherboard is NewEgg item# N82E16813128514
Pros: Solid construction
Cons: Running on AMD 990fx
