    And thats interesting to know you have the m500.. I was actually considering getting one of the crucial SSD's since they seem to perform well and be cheap!..

    but I guess I should stay with Samsung as they seem to have figured out the heat and performace.. but who doesn't want to save money..

    Windows 8.1 x64

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I have been building my own pc's for years now.

    I had an amd phenom 2 system that I had running for a few years. Just recently I purchased a z97 Motherboard, i7 4790k, EVGA 850w PSU and m500 ssd to upgrade this system.

    No it is not upgraded Windows. It was a FRESH install on the ssd. Also, during install, I disconnected my other drives. The older Seagate 500gb drive I used as system drive when my amd was running, I wiped clean. I kept my current ddr3-1333 gskill ram as I do not need any other at this time.

    Hope this makes sense.

    I had been recommended the m500 from a Canadian computer forum as I was orginally going to go with a kingston. This is my first ssd purchase.

    seems like a nice board. though I don't know why motherboards support all this superspeed transfer crap when nothing we buy even goes that fast.. (hard drives/ram/ etc.. ) we just keep paying for crap we never can actually achieve. But I understand, it's fun.
    need real speed?

    yes, well, regardless you seem to be doing custom builds.. and you should absolutely not be seeing issues like that with that board..

    here is my startup in under 17 seconds.. from a laptop too ha. And notice all the programs I have!? I never had a slow-down.. and I don't have a asus motherboard.. so it's time for you to figure that out. You should absolutely not have to deal with that.
