Default I think SSD isnt as fast as it could be


I think my SSD speeds are bad could it be since its in sata 3g? If I put it to sata 6g would it be better. Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

As of right now its the lowest wei score with 7.6

Rosewill Challenger U3

OCZ Modxsteam 700w
Seagate Barracuda 500gb 7200RPM
Kingston Hyperx 120gb
-Nexus 7 16gb Stock 4.12-

Keep in mind that max WEI rating is 7.9. As for speeds of SATA3 vs SATA6, I'm not sure if SSD's are hitting the limit that SATA3 can hit so I don't think switching it will do much, but nothing bad can happen if you do swap it.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Considering most 5400/7200 RPM drives struggle to reach anywhere near that rating i would say there is quite a momentous difference in drive speeds. SSD's can be rather unstable though and always remember to turn off defragmenting as to not damage the drives. and if you're board supports sata3 6gb/s its worth the money if you care that much about performance
