So ive recently went and bought an ssd to upgrade from my old hdds , and so far ive done the following.

1.reinstalled windows 10 pro
  1. Activated ahci mode
  2. Checked my registry to make sure it is not running in ide an ahchi
So the problem is it is a WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB ssd , ive hooked everything up correctly and it runs but the speeds are no where close to whats advertised , it says up to 560mb/530mb read/write but on tests i see no higher than 270mbs

Now im not sure weither i should send this back or what do as this is the first SSD ive installed and wanted to cover my bases as it is brand new.

Is the ssd connected to a sata 3 port on the mobo?
