I am less than half the 470mb/s write speed as per specifications: http://www.sandisk.co.uk/products/ssd/sata/x300/
I have this board: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4953#sp
with bios RAID rom 126.96.36.1995
using iRST driver 188.8.131.528, 13.2, & 13.6 all give similar results.
I am on the latest official F5 bios for the Gigabyte Z79X Gaming 5.
I tried to flash via DOS but I was not sure if the bios update was even on the USB stick. I went to the dashboard and after watching a video on how to update the firmware I expected to download a file but it autoflashed in windows. It worked but I was trying to flash via DOS. I have a picture of the error the BIOS flash utility was giving me but its still on my phone atm.
Is the X300 a retail product?
