    4.9.5 is the latest version.

    Maybe this is the best I can do with my system? So I could add a 3.0 controller card?
    You could add another PRO 850 and run them both in RAID0 mode

    Wonder if they make a Sata3 Controller that will work on my board?

    Don't know. Maybe others here do.

    How happy are you with it at SATA2 speeds? Does the benchmarking really mean anything?

    Looking at this StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card Model PEXSAT32 - Newegg.com

    Benchmark is not as important as speed,not seeing much difference then my HDD. Not sure controller will make a lot of difference,seems like it would.

    Older motherboard with PCI x1 slot to use a SATA controller card most likely won't achieve that much faster speeds. Can read few articles make you understand.

    Thanks for info jds63, just ordered Two SATA3 Ports SATA III 2 Port Internal 6Gbps PCI Expre Card ASM1061 Chipset | eBay . Not sure if it will help much,but will give it a try. Going to build new system next year,just getting by for now. Problem I have now is one SSD and one HDD in the computer. Have a switch that can power on and off each drive,but the HDD will not boot if bios mode is AHCI ,but get better performace from SSD when in AHCI mode. Hard to do this stuff with older system.

    I am not familiar with doing this, was learning more myself by reading. Sure will not be worse then what it is just from researching it.
    Guess was something needed to know before buying a SATA III SSD, having only SATA II controller on the board. Since Samsung are not the cheapest SSD. Good luck and your welcome.

    Correct AHCI drivers will help to.

    You've just switched to AHCI mode. Make sure TRIM is enabled, from Admin Command prompt and run:

    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

    If not, run this:
    fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0
