Bought a new SSD since it was on sale, but did a benchmark on it and noticed it is slower than my old C: drive even though that disk is old and was even cheaper. Both are Kingston drives the new one is a SKC600 512gb and the old one is a SUV400 240gb. My motherboard is pretty old at this point, it is a Asus Sabertooth P67, but ports I plugged it into were both marked SATA 6.0 Gb in the manual so I don't know what is going on.

Are you connected to the Intel SATA ports? If you have JMicron or Marvell SATA ports they will be slower.

Ah, that's it. The manual said the Marvell ports had the same speed but I guess not. Only two Intel ports with Sata 3, so I guess I'll live with it for now. At least there was nothing wrong with the disk.
