IDE mode or AHCI


Recommended Posts

You may notice a small gain in performance, but you may also start having problems and particularly rebooting and sudden shut downs. Sometimes this is caused by incompatibility by some dvd-rws working in AHCI mode.

All you have to do is try and see.

Some boards have an option in bios where you can set your dvd-rw work in ide mode and your hdds in AHCI mode.

Use Crystal Disk Mark to see any differences in ide mode and in ahci mode:
