I have read the other threads on this drive and it not performing at 6G/sec. I believe my problem is somewhat similar. This drive simply does not perform at 6G/sec. I am including the steps I have taken to try remedy the problem. I am also including the drives benchmarks, any help getting this drive to perform to its potential would be appreciated –
