I just want to share with You my happiness about this intels mobo and Intel 330 SSD, due fact, that it's performing highly above it's "paygrade" [specifications].
The Intel SSD 330 is suppose to read 500 MB/s and write 450 MB/s. Well, not anymore. Screenshot has been taken from my friends/clients desktop, and I'm very happy that even "mainstream" Intels SSD disk is performing so well, as his bigger brother 520. It's getting 554 MB/s read and 485 MB/s write!
Good for you! The 330 SSD benefits from the same SandForce firmware validation and fixes Intel did with the 520, although the 330 has its own firmware version. Otherwise, the 520 has grade AA NAND chips, while the 330 has "just" grade A NAND.
