LONG Mass Effect 2 loading times on a SSD?

I have a Samsung 840 250 gb that replaced a Samsung 470 128 gb ssd. On the 470 my loading times were next to nothing, 4 seconds max. On this new one (Thats sata 3 as oppesed to the 470 which is sata 2) My loading times are ridiculous, upwards of a minute and even longer than on the Xbox. Whats going on?

    Mass Effect 2 has two major issues with load times, one being a design flaw, the other being a bug. Both can be fixed.

    The one minute load times are caused by an incompatibility issue with some multicore processors. Originally, you had to go to your PC's processes and set your processor affinity to one core and then back to all cores. This is tedious, but fortunately someone made a program that does this automatically everytime you launch the game. The program is called MassAffinity and can be downloaded here: http://www.theplaywrite.com/tools-and-utilities/au...

    The design flaw in the game is that most loading screens have to finish their loading animation before the game progresses. This can be fixed by replacing the loading screens in the game by a new short video.You can read instructions and download the short loading screens here: http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/103/index/...
