I just bought a 256GB 840 Pro from amazon, It arrived today and I connected it to my 2 week old M5A97 EVO R2.0 however AS SSD bench reports 430MB/write and 3MB/s read - HD Tune Pro reports that I am getting <2MB read speeds and also reports warning in the health status to say the UDMA CRC errors reporting numbers of 7000+
Is this a faulty drive? I think it must be as I have tried in different motherboard ports, tried different cables etc.
My old Intel SSDSA2M080G2GC works fine and gets approx 200MB/s without a problem.
If anyone can suggest anything before I RMA the drive and go and buy an OCZ vector tomorrow I would be grateful.
This is my intel on AS SSD
Intel Anvil (AMD drivers)
Intel Anvil (Windows drivers - storageahci)
This is a spare drive - on the same cables on the same board.
