Not sure, but probably.

PParks1, do you mind possibly posting an HDTune of your Black so I can compare yours to mine on PCI?
you're probably right - the black is a nice drive.

Thanks. Confirms my theory on the PCI card I'm using. I have no other way to attach the drive though, besides my 2 onboard SATA I ports which are already in use anyhow.

That OS drive is crazy! Really cool how it maintains similar performance throughout the whole storage medium.
