    Don't need no brushing...

    I was sorta in a rush this morning and did not really make a clear post.
    It sorta came across wrong, since, I left out a little.

    My point, to Jan Kyster, was supposed to be; that, with the larger cache and all else being close in specs... that drive should at least get reads as good as I and not have a decrease in read speed at the higher data transfer.
    It really should stay consistent.

    He had a drop of read speed at 64MB and it did not recover, until it hit 8192mb, so I suggested he may wish to check it.

    Thanks for your concern, though.
    :)

    EDIT

    ^SEE ABOVE THE EDIT^
    So, you can overlay all you want, it don't change your drives reads!:p

    But really, what would you suggest I can check?

    Hence this irked one...
    ... is because I'm not impressed by SATA3 either.
    Sitting with same feelings as when we went from SATA I to SATA II... no big weee's or wow's... [​IMG]

    Looking forward to replace it, but as said - if you know how to improve it, I'll be all over it! [​IMG]

    Well, my driver for the Marvell 91xx 6GB controller is Marvell driver version 1.2.0.1002, maybe the latest one will improve your reads a little.

    I usually get mine over at Station-drivers or you can get it at ASUS.

    Hope it helps.:)

    You should perhaps also take into account your drives age/condition as this can sometimes come into the fact's :)

    Not saying there is any difference but might be worth thinking about at the least.

    A "little" must be the best way to describe the difference! :D

    Here's before and after update with version 1.2.0.1002:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But it is there - so thanks for the heads-up! [​IMG]

    Normally I check the ASUS site for the specific MB, but the updated drivers isn't there? So used the one from your link instead.

    Its (WD BLACK) pretty noisy on the downside but Im a gamer so I don't care much but overall its like 20%-30% more noisy than regular hdd.
    I had that WD 1,5 Green before and it died after a year that was pretty quiet.

    The performance gain seem's well worth it though imo!

    Although the WD Blue drives which I now use are quieter than I expected probably very little difference from the WD Green I have for storage, my main OS drive before was my Maxtor - damn noisey thing! but it's always done the job despite the hammer it's had :toast:

    That's freaking leet yet still a bit disappointing that you can read the whole drive in 240seconds :)

    Are those black ones the same as mine ? WD1502FAEX ?

    Finally found my nerves and "updated" from IDE to AHCI today...

    IDE versus AHCI (both with Marvell 1.2 driver):
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Not too bad, but looking above I couldn't help noticing how much faster the nVidea nForce is... :shadedshu

    But at least my BIOS is ready for a SSD now :D
