btw im using it on a sata port since i havent upgraded my MOBO, or is that the "normal results" are when using sata 3?
Try again in english that somebody possibly can understand.
What motherboard is this? Please dont just tell me what chipset... we know. What is the exact motherboard?
What do you mean with "sata port", that it is SATA I
or that you not tried to connect the drive via PATA? Even new MOBOs dont have anything different than "sata ports"... whut do you mean. Be more specific.
Do you have Sata I or Sata II or Sata III? Get familar with the bus-maximum bandwiths and first tell clearly what you got.
Have you connected it to Sata_0 (first Sata-port)?
Have you setup Sata-Mode AHCI in BIOS?
Did you install the Nvidia-Driverpack?
Picture 1 seems to be your drive, what CAN be normal, depending on what you answer on the questions above.
The second picture obviously is a propper working drive connected through sata III, so "yes", or what answer did you expect on your last question/statement?
As far as I know, the nvidia reference 650i-motherboards have the nvidia 430 mcp northbridge which is only capable of Sata I (150mb/s).
The nforce 4 ultra at firstly had Sata II, so obviously your drives "bus" can only handle such low speeds and your results are pretty normal.
The fact that it is slower also on small chunk files can just be a performance regression on the old nforce itself.
PS: The questions were rhetorical, no need to answer.
