    By the way, the R2 SATA 2, so unless you do RAID 0 like I did with my 320 series 160GB, you won't get that much higher. Also your Vertex 3 is rated for much higher speeds if you have SATA 3. If you only have a SATA 2 laptop, your speeds will be MUCH lower, which your scores look like a typical SandForce SATA 2 score. Your 4k scores are a little low, there are some registry tweaks you can perform.

    Also there is a program called fancycache that greatly increases ssd performance by caching with your ram, google it here are the scores from my single corsair performance pro running at sata2 speeds

    Wow this actually works!!:D Just using throttle stop alone have improved it a little, now I will go for the reg edit thingy but I will add to it the 5% OC from the BIOS menu, lets see what this baby can do ;)

    kalisto, over 3000 megabytes/s (MB/s) write on a SATA2 connection? that's impossible.

    SATA2 on your computer maxes out @ 3mbits/s which is 375 megabytes/second.

    You are reporting 10x higher than is possible on a single sata2 connection

    So, i have a feeling that fancycache is doing a lot of fancy stuff to your numbers ;)

    lol check what I did come up with.....I think if it really uses RAM for reading yeah maybe it can work that fast but the writing here looks about right on the money or so..:D

    Now I got the 5%OC on, I need to do the reg and run the test, I'm sleepy now so I better do it when I wake up :)

    Yes, it is possible. Take a look at the post at the bottom of my sig. It uses extra RAM to enable a cache that speeds up even SSD's.
