    Agreed, in theory it should have absolutely made no effect; BUT, maybe that's why it's slipping by unnoticed as a cause ? Often the things you never would think of turn up being the root of the evil. And again, broken record, I can tailor recreate every time simply by changing the cable. Actually, I don't think it's the SATA Mode IDE vs AHCI but I do believe it's the SATA standards because they do change power settings per standard a little I believe. And yea this could all be only on certain boards because of chipset/sata bus controller on Mobo in combination with the other drives. I actually never would have thought of this as the cause cause it does make no sense. I stumbled on it by accident. :)

    gonna report my findings to Seagate tomorrow and see what they say and if they will test bench it on their end. Lol "Kill the chirp project 2012"
