Hi guys,
My name is Alex and i'm a musician with a very nasty computer that won't let me do my job! since music is my main income this issue hurts like hell, so your help is very appreciated.

I have a problem with my Western Digital Black Caviar 1 TB hd performance, it's super slow.. well actually I think the problem is the Gigabyte X-58-USB3 Motherboard, but maybe i'm wrong.. keep reading.

I tested my HD on HD Tune and the results are attached in the photo below.
when I took the same hard drive and placed it in a different computer everything was fine and the HD tune graph looked great. I tried different memory cards, different PSU, re-installed windows (which helps for 2-3 hours and then back to the same results), hd format, changing the sata input on the MB, changing sata cables.. got the same results. when I go to the PC shop I got the MB from they just run a Western Digital scan and tell me the HD looks fine and that the MB is OK because when they put their own HD with their own windows the results are good (which is true, but they need to put the computer to work for a couple of hours to get my results, and these guys just don't seem to want to do that).
Is there anything you can do to help me? Am I missing something? PLEASE HELP!

did they also confirm your HDD good on other motherboard? still don't know if it is the problem.
where are your photos? just saw some ads in the screen.
