Hi, thanks for reading. I want to know some advice about this trouble. I jumped from an Phenom 955 with a 780G+SB710 board to a shiny 3570K paired with H77 chipset, both ASUS boards (M3A78-EM, P8H77-M PRO, yeah love the MicroATX). The reason for the move wasnt the performance upgrade, actually was the **** AHCI support on the SB710 that gave me just headaches with the SSDs i have tried (GSkill Evo 115GB and Vertex 3 120 GB). Since then the SSD works like a charm but with Intel RST the hard drive performance under AHCI loads (concurrent loads) its AWFUL. Just feels like the RST is tring to push to much data from the first thread (like in IDE mode) rather than ordering the requests to attend everything as fast as possible, and this actually never happened with the AMD platform, the hard drive in AHCI worked just fine.
Details from my old rig: Phenom II 955 (Deneb C3), 8 GB DDR2 800 XMS2, ASUS M3A78-EM (780G+SB710), MSI R6850 Cyclone, Gskill Phoenix EVO 115 GB and OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB (both troubly with the mobo on AHCI), CM Silent Pro M 500W, W7 Pro x64 with SP1, no OC.
Details from my updated rig: IB 3570K, 8 GB DDR3 1333 Kingston Value, ASUS P8H77-M PRO, MSI R6850 Cyclone, OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB, CM Silent Pro M 500W, W7 Pro x64 with SP1, Intel RST, no OC.
Let me know about any ideas! Thanks.
