[SOLVED] Slow read/write speeds on SSD

Okay, I just recently built a new system using the new MSI MAG B550 MORTAR MOBO and it has 6 SATA 3 6 GB/s connections, 4 of which are used for my storage only, and I just did a benchmark on my Corsair Force Series 3 SSD with CrystalDiskMark and it showed the SSD's read and write are far below what the page advertises, 209 MB/s read and 113 MB/s write. The drive is probably kinda old, bought Feb 2014, and it's refurbished as well. Any insight as to why this might be would be appreciated. Also, the drive is almost full, about 7 gigs left of free space, so if that is the main reason then I can fix that, most likely by buying a bigger drive.
