I recently installed a SATA HDD on a Intel P4 MOBO(D865GBF). It has on board SATA connectors but I did have to get a adaptor for the power. It's a WD Caviar Green 1 TB SATA drive(WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1) and I figured it would be at least as fast as the 5 year old 160GB Maxtor it replaced. But the PC is a pig. Doing one thing like surfing is fine...but as soon as I do anything else like UTorrent ...PIG Time.
My PassMark Rating was 155.
Here are the Disk scores.
Disk - Sequential Read: 3.1Any ideas why my drive is slow?
Disk - Sequential Write: 3.1
Disk - Random Seek + RW: 1.7
