I assume you mean the ssd is read as SATA 2, not your hdd? Have you updated the firmware? Is the type of disk set as AHCI (not IDE) in the BIOS?

I have "OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS III SATA 2.5" I think that is his problem, I tried another SATA III SSD and sees it correctly, we have the latest frimware and still sees SATA II: |, that is the problem?

G74 should support SATA III..... In HWiNFO, in the motherboard section its says SATA Port 0 6 GB/s Supported and Port 1 6 GB/s Supported

Dont own an SSD but from what I have seen those speeds are fine. It depends on your SSD.

You can have a SATA III SSD with 530mb/s read, 430mb/s write for example but a different SATA III can have 500mb/s read and 260mb/s write..... Depends on brand, model, ect, best way to know, is check your SSD specs

Getting benchmarks close to the theoretical maximum read/writes is unlikely. Most SSDs will be considerably lower, though they are still plenty fast enough.
