System Setup with Intel 520

Hi guys,

I'm new here and first time poster. I had a look around before asking, but I was unable to locate relevant discussions.

Here is my problem with my new pc: i7-3770, gigabyte ga-z77p-d3 v1.1, 16GB and an Intel 520 SSD as boot device, 2TB HDD for data. I installed Win7 x64.

Now the problem, I ran AS SSD which gives me "pciide-bad" notice, which as I understand means that the SSD is not working in AHCI mode. I'm sure my bios setup says AHCI under SATA Mode. Is this a BIOS setup problem? What would you recommend?

Another strange thing is that HD Tune actually reads the drive as SATA2 working at UDMA 5 rather than 6.

Can you suggest any BIOS setup to optimize the performance of the SSD?

Thanks for reading,
