What do I do now? September 06, , I have selected force and updated the firmware as suggested. Those ports are not suggested for OS SSD’s, you will only get faster sequential read speeds, that is it. Play a bit with the configuration, maybe you have luck and it is a bit better compared to the Intel SATA2 ports. Recently installed the m4 on gigabyte x58a-ud3r motherboard.

Intel SSD on Marvell SATA III controller GA-X58A-UD7 rev 1 your better off using the intel sata 2 ports,those marvel ports will be quicker around mb per second reads but they will usually crash ect,they wont be as reliable as intel your better off trying to grab hold of a g1 sniper or x58a oc mb with newer marvel ports,or stick to intel sata 2.

Thank you in advance. Top in sequential read, and nearly so in others too. Yes I totally understand your frustration with the answers received from this company. We trusted what the mother board specs said, and were let down.
MARVELL SATA3 problem
Explains why a minority people seem to have it performing OK then. Not the same motherboard but still has the same controller so marevll speeds will be the same. More info can be found here.
I would suggest keeping the Marvell ports for ruinning optical drives etc and use safa Southbridge ports for the boot drive and other hard drives. Home Help Login Register. Email Required, but never shown. Just Uploaded New Battlefield 4 Video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any help would be appreciated. They often have slow detecting rate which slows down boot. I guess i feel a bit upset after spending so much money on a ssd only to find out I can’t run it at the speeds that were advertised.

You have to set Force after each BIOS update to update the included Marvell firmware from within each BIOS, you’ll see it updating on the top of the screen on the next reboot after you set that to Force. Review is here for anyone interested.

As you know I also tried to get a definitive answer from Western Digital regarding this problem and met with much the same response after the usual inane questions like can I supply the serial numbers so they can look into the problem.
