Son of a B........!! *Face-Palm*
Ok, so you got me thinking and I was checking everything in Windows 7 to see why my write speed was so terrible.
I had the "device write cache" disabled on the drive, not just the "OS write cache"! I thought I read that turning off the write cache would make no difference on the SSD
so I turned it off while tuning Windows 7. Well there's a lesson I've learned. Hopefully someone else will read this and learn from my mistake. Here is the benchmark with the Device Write Cache enabled. A lot better than before, but still not RunCore speeds, and the speeds your getting.
