Alright, first off I want to know if there’s any difference between using SATA power connector vs legacy? Secondly when I connect the sata power connector (that has 5 leads) it makes a very bad and loud screeching sound constantly from the time it boots up. But if I use either the legacy power connector or the 4 lead extention SATA power cable it doesn’t?? All tests indicate a good hard drive, however, just wondering about that. Possible hard drive failure? Let me know if you need additional info, I’ll get it to you asap.
One minor thing, seems like SMART can’t be enabled when I have AHCI controller enabled, any thoughts/fixes?
Thank you in advance
Another thing, I was reading the info about the performance of the drive and I’m doing about 58 mb/s averate read time and doesn’t seem to add up. And burst speed is only 113 mb/s. i’m running on Windows XP x64 fully updated (all drivers possibly updated are)
