Just build a new rig with i7 920, P6T Deluxe and some OCZ Platinum.
I am having issues with performance with my Velociraptor 300GB WD3000HLFS.
Here is a screenshot with HDTune.
And here is the info on it. If that helps at all.
In the BIOS it is running in IDE mode. When I tried to use AHCI, Vista x64 wouldn't boot up. It would give a BSOD during the loading screen and reboot. I'm not too familiar with this either... but does it have something to do with that? Am I just stupid and running it slower than it should be. I don't have experience with RAID's at all, and I only have this one drive and an external data drive.
Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
Update: Got it running in AHCI now, running in UDMA 6/133, still no real performance difference. Forgot to install the drivers. It's late lol.
