Whats causing this????

Alreet,

Ya mention that ya using SSD, what OS are you running? If its windows 7 then this should detect the SSD and change settings accordingly, i run SSDs myself and they are awesome. Also, just wondering what mobo your using as i found that certain chipsets dont handle SSDs aswell, i used to use a ICH9 controller on the mobo and it couldnt deal with TRIM commands where as ICH10 handles them fine

If ya using XP or vista then there are plenty of guides for SSD, just search something like "optimal settings for SSD" and you should get plenty info
