Hey i'm new to this forum, thanks for having me. I benchmarked my Seagate Barracuda 160GB SATA with NCQ. I use WinBench 99 2.0 and i only get 10.8K for Business and 28.8k for High-end. Tomshardware got numbers like 13k and 40k
I don't see why my numbers are lower when i have a better system then the one they use


My setup is:
3.4 P4 LGA775 Prescott
Intel D915PBL
Geil ddr2 533Mhz ( 2x512mb)
MSI 6600GT
Seagate 160GB w/ NCQ

They did the benches on a fresh install, did you? They also have zip, zero ,nothing, running on startup.

Not 100% but don't some Seagates have two operating modes Quiet and Performance that you can set with their diagnostic utilities.
