I don't get it - why am I and others with obviously fast drives (Seagate 500GB 7200.11 drives - IOW, 32 MB Cache) showing such a *noticeable* dip in performance?

Is it because I (and others) did not create a partition and let 7000 use the entire drive?

Umm I gave it *all* the space....

As in I deleted all partitions on the drive and then let the installation proceed.

John,

Have you installed the motherboard chipset drivers? You may need to use compatibily mode to do so, but it may help.

During Install - it would hang when it was getting set to do the final reboot, and if I forced it (even after waiting 2 hours the first time) W7 gave me an error and asked for me to boot from the DVD and restart my install.

Weird, since Vista never once coughed at my OC - then again, I did have my OC toned down a bit, to 3.21 GHz instead of 3.375, that may also have been a factor....

Yeah, I did that - no change.

But, I figured it out. Thanks to this post http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d....html#post9814 I found the answer - and I haven't even applied Dave's tweak yet.

Many of us, especially OCers, tend to disable Native Command Queuing in the BIOS - however, I just found out that W7 has it enabled as an option for our SATA controllers. Whether this is from the nVidia drivers or native, I don't know - I suspect native because of the dramatic results I am about to show you:

My original Build 7000 WEI:

-windows-7-build-7000-wei.png

So, seeing Dave's post made me think - perhaps there is another tweak. Sure enough, take a look at your SATA controllers in Device Manager. See the following window captur and the attached Speed Test:

Now, if you uncheck Command Queuing, initially nothing happens if you run a speed test - because a reboot is required. However, notice the *dramatic* speed changes after removing Command Queuing and the requisite reboot:

I say that the drop in sustained speed is negligible compared to the *massive* increase in the burst speed - and, as I suspected, the WEI is based more on burst than sustained....

And, finally, my new WEI:

-windows-7-build-7000-wei-post-ncq-tweak.png

Again, this is without Dave's tweak - I am going to see if that makes a difference or not - I suspect I'll be back in the 6.9 range with it also performed.

Enjoy, Folks!
