Test Setup

Test Setup

For this test I will use the following Test Setup:

AMD 64 3200+ Venice @ 2.55GHz
DFI LANPARTY UT Sli-D motherboard
Mushkin Redline PC4000 running at 255 x 10 1:1 3-3-2-5
HDD: OS - 160gb Hitachi Deskstar SATA II
Sound: SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS
Power: PCP&C 510 SLi
Case: Coolermaster stacker with a lot of additional cooling

The drives I will be using will be:

160gb Hitachi Deskstar SATA II (in addition to the OS drive)

2 x 40gb Hitachi Deskstars in RAID 0

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750 GB

I will test this using SiSoft Sandra, PC Mark 05, HD Tach. I will also transfer a 1.91GB file from the OS drive to each drive and time this. Each test was repeated three times for consistancy and the results averaged.

your right the one in the pic is the IDE Version but there is also the SATA II Version.

All mobos support it even if it is sata 2 and the mobo is only sata 1 but int that case it lacks the features of sata 2Quote
