    SSD Setup


    Got my Samsung Pro 256 installed and all software loader OK. Not seeing a lot of difference over HDD yet,In Samsung Magician its says to use AHCI mode,if I set bios to that it will not boot.Is this a must for top performance? Can't get rapid mode set either. Is this Benchmark Bad?

    Easiest way to get into safe mode is Win+R key to open run dialog. type msconfig. Select the boot tab. Click the safe mode check box. Restart the computer.

    To get out of safe mode do the same process in safe mode, but uncheck the safe mode check box.

    They made safe mode a real PITA in Windows 10.

    The benchmark you posted initially looks the same as for 850 EVO in my Wife's SATA2 limited Acer laptop. Would expect same in your case - unless you have a SATA3 controller to attach it to.

    Maybe this is the best I can do with my system? So I could add a 3.0 controller card?

    Some people believe RAPID Mode benefits them, it wll depend specifically on how you use it - I perceive no benefit to my SATA3 laptop nor do I perceive any on wife's SATA2 laptop.

    Which version of Samsun Magician are you running - I thought latest, 4.9.5, would allow Rapid Mode for the PRO line now (IF you want to try RAPID Mode.

    I would think there is possibility of adding a SATA3 controller, your system being a desktop - but my desktop is like 11 years old so I would let someone else give you a more specific answer on that.
