sata 6.0 running very slow?
Posted on 2010-08-23
I have a brand new build with an MSI MSI 880GMA-E45 with sata 6.0 along with a Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s drive. WIth the new windows 7 install it only rates the disk speed at 5.9, and sisoftware sanda is only showing transfer speed of around 100mb. Any idea why I'm not even getting Sata 3.0 speeds? I installed all of the ATI drivers including the most recent ones from the website.
