Yeah people are still getting higher benchmarks so at least we know it's just the WEI Test that's broken.

Strangely enough I've tried the NCQ tweak as well as the write cache tweak, but neither has changed my score.

I did run the speed test on my hard drive from within the device manager properties for my nforce SATA controller and the sustained speed is terrible.

I'm running two seagate drives, both 16MB cache and they both have very similar results as shown below.

Any idea what may be at issue? I'd think the sustained rate should be significantly higher.

As an FYI, running an EVGA 780i motherboard

You did reboot after applying the Command Queuing tweak, right?

Yeah, rebooted after command que and then again after the write caching changes. Not seen a bit of change in the WEI.

Don't do both - do one or the other....and see how it does....

but I am assuming that is what you meant from your post....

To be honest, I don't even have the ability to change Command Queuing on my WD HD, only on my Seagate HDs. You sustained speed *is* terrible, and that means something is not working right. For now, I think this is a W7 issue.

Also, did you reboot when prompted, or did you wait and then reboot? I saw my settings revert if I canceled the reboot right then, and I had to reboot when prompted using the dialog box to get the setting to stick....

I did the cache changes and NCQ changes separately, and rebooted after each change. I rebooted when the NCQ change prompted me to.

I'm wondering if that, due to me doing an upgrade as opposed to a clean install, that some of the drivers may not have been updated properly for my mainboard. I know that the SATA drivers weren't - I had to change those manually...

Since you have the same mobo as I do, do a *full* install of the nForce 15.23 drivers and see if that helps....

Be sure to check everything, and you may want to run the setup file in Vista compatibility mode....

Did the install as you mentioned above and no difference. This is getting rather frustrating. And with my luck it's likely something simple.
