I just built a new pc with this mobo in it. I bought a WD Caviar black sata III 6/gbs because this mobo has the connection. When I ran my win 7 system rating, it only gave the hard drive a 5.9 out of 7.9
That seems a little low for this hard drive. Do I need to activate the sata III somehow in the bios, or is it already activated?

5.9 is the highest score you can get with a mechanical hdd, higher scores are reserved for raid arrays and ssd's

It wouldnt supprise me if the onboard/onchip Intel controller (SATA2/300) performed better at most benchmarks then the SATA3 controller etc
