I recently built a new PC running Windows 7 on an SSD and am surprised to see my Primary Hard Disk - Disk Data Transfer Rate scoring at a 5.9.
My motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH and my SSD (which the OS is installed on) is a Samsung 840 Series 2.5 inch 120GB SATA III.
From everything I have looked at I should have a score in the 7.x range for this combination of hardware based on the fact that I am using the SAT III port for the SSD. I have used Samsungs software to make sure I am on the current firmware and am unsure as to what I need to look at from a BIOS perspective to determine if my configuration is optimal.
Any help would be appreciated, please let me know if there is additional detail necessary to identify the issue.
