They aren't designed exactly for speed. Never used them, though. No NCQ? Sil 3114 doesn't support of course. ICH7 (without letters) doesn't do AHCI either IIRC. > 9 Power_On_Hours 0x0032 091 091 000 Old_age > Always - 7189 > 193 Load_Cycle_Count 0x0032 164 164 000 Old_age Always > - 109955 Hmm, some agressive power savings? May reduce performance significantly. I'd disable all this "green" crap first. > Where it seems that WD simply says not to use these drives in a RAID.
