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...

What motherboard do you have?

Ho many SATA ports do you have on the mobo? You might try also moving them...

oh, wait, which Bios version are you using, and is yours the 780i or the 780i FTW?

I have 3 total sata drives in use. Two HDs and one DVD. Both of the hard drives, which are on different sata controllers, have similar performance. Both are Seagate 16 MB cache - one 500 gig and one 300 gig.

Just the 780i, btw. I'll have to check on the bios ver.

Please do - it might be that since I am running P08 I am able to get this working correctly....

Yikes! That is the original BIOS that came with the mobo, if you bought it sometime this year....

Try this:
  1. Go to EVGA | Download Drivers
  2. Select Mainboards in the first column
  3. Select BIOS Updates in the second column
  4. Select NF78 - nForce 780i SLI in the third
  5. Click the Go button.
  6. Download the most appropriate one (since you're already running Windows 7, I *highly* recommend that you use the floppy/USB method or the ISO method (I use that as I have plenty of CDRWs lying around to use).

OK, BIOS updated to latest.

WEI score jumped to 5.8 with NCQ turned off.

The Sustained rate I posted prior hasn't changed at all.

The velociraptor only gets a 6.0 rating(which is my lowest score). The same rating I had with two 320g in raid 0. Hopefully when I get another and put those in raid 0 I'll get to 7.9
