SSD benchmark doesn't make sense/low performance

Use something other than the braindead userbenchmark.com.
CrystalDiskMark, for instance.

Sorry about that. Was hoping it was something universally fixed.

PSU is a Thermaltake Smart 700W (But I've actually had way better luck than most people with this one, power is stable)

Antivirus and Windows Real-Time protection disabled and no other processes are running in the background so nothing else is using it.
 
make sure you go to amd web page download the updated chipset drivers for the amd 900 chipset. the other issue is the ssd is to full. there no room for drive to do wear leveling or garbage clean up. try cleaning up old file off the drive (ccleaner). and windows disk clean up system files to remove old windows and old windows drivers. if you cant make the data on the ssd less then try and move some photos/music to slower hard drive back up drive.

The chipset drivers are up to the latest versions. Checked several times.

I would agree with it being too full, but I don't believe 20GB free space would cause this much of a problem. Also, it has done this to me even when the drive was only using 60GB.

I clean and trim/defragment my drives very often, extremely anal about that, actually. So that's not the issue. I don't even store my media on that drive. Just too many large programs.

Using CCleaner is pointless in any cleaning attempt. To be completely honest you should stop suggesting that as a worthy tool. It does nothing to boost performance.

Well, I turned off automatic trimming and actually use Defraggler manually weekly. Seems to do a more in-depth job than windows. But that's besides the point.

No, let Windows do that automatically.
