    SSD 510 runs slow

    Frozen_Tundra

      Just installed a 510 SSD and it runs very slow (file load about 1MB / sec)

      Configuration:

      Intel SSDSC2MH120A2

      Win7

      Asus Stryker Extreme MB

      nVidia SATA controller 3.0 GB

      Intel Q6700 CPU

      4BG ram

      latest drivers intstalled for everything

       

      Performance is poor - a 297MB Excel 2010 file takes 3 minutes and 15 seconds to load.  I was expecting 5 to 10 times better performance.  Current performance is not any better than on my Centrino dual core laptop with a 5.400 RPM disk drive.

       

      Also, after installing the Intel SSD Toolbox, whenever I run it, it won't let me do anything.  It correctly identifies the installed drive , but when I click on the drive, it performs a refresh and won't let me select any of the buttons, such as "View drive information", "Check SMART Attributes", etc.

       

      Thanks in advance for any advice.
