AHCI vs IDE Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 14, 2010 5:52 AM in Systems Share kris77 April 12, 2010 1:54:39 PM I have a Gigabyte UD3 board with an I7 860 and a seagate 7200.12 1tb HD. What is the difference in ACHI and IDE mode for the sata connectors? And which one should i be using? Im running XP 32 bit right now but have Win 7 64 bit on the way. Plan on dual booting just in case i need the 32 bit for something. More about : ahci ide zalittle April 13, 2010 6:17:00 PM http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...
