    Intel ICH10R SATA Speed

    Now, can someone correct and/or help me out here. On the office PC I have an Asus P6T motherboard which has the Intel ICH10R chipset. I was always under the impression that this was a SATA 3 chipset, yet when I benchmark a new(ish) Kingston HyperX SATA 3 drive it never tops 300MBps.
    Either I have got it wrong and the chipset is SATA 2, or something is wrong somewhere else. Any help?

    Hmm. According to this: P6T - Motherboards - ASUS I'm on SATA 2
    Anyone recommend a reasonably priced SATA 3 card then?

    This has worked for us in the past: http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-U3S6-US.../dp/B002VVQ58M

    (other vendors are available)

    You might want to take a look at this: PCIe SATA 3.0 Controller Card - 6gbps | 2 port | StarTech.com United Kingdom

    FYI, it's cheaper on Amazon, than direct from Startech

    I had been looking at that one, however the Asus card with USB 3.0 as well looks like the winner as it will kill 2 birds with one stone i.e. I need a USB 3.0 card as well but only have one PCIe x1 slot

    Thanks Tom. That is very helpful, I wasn't aware that they did USB 3.0 PCI cards
