Hello! I have a problem here. I own the OCZ Onyx 60 GB. I was testing write speeds with it and I am only getting 58 - 60 mb/sec when writing 1000 mb. This is very slow. I do not know what I did that was wrong? I am not an expert here. I just learned today that my SATA was connected to the wrong port. I put it in the right port and I am getting the same speeds. Here is my mobo

I have no idea what made me get this mobo when I started my build but i'm stuck with it haha.

Any ideas of what I did wrong? Thanks a lot!
