AsRock P67 Xtreme6 SATA3 BIOS settings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Few days ago I bought the AsRock P67 Xtreme 6, looks fabulous, and I was tired to wait for MSI B3 revision... Sorry for disturbing you, but if you so kind to answer me a few questions related to this AsRock mobo...

1.I use a SATA3 HDD, connected to port SATA3_0, and the DVD ROM connected to SATA2_5 port on the motherboard.

Please tell me what optimal settings should I use in BIOS/storage?

I feel the HDD is not so fast, average writing and loading times in games...crappy score in 3Dmark11 (5214 default). the HDD is Western Digital WD1002FAEX, I search the net and find out that the system recognize him as SATA3, but actually works as SATA2 or worst, as this might be a defective batch from WD.

My System: i5 2500k, AsRock P67 Xtreme6, 2x4Gb DDR3 1600, MSI 570GTX, 900W power supply, Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit.

Thank you for your time,

Moca

this is typical benchmark result from other users .. HD Tune 2.55 (read) 3 runs
Transferrate min.: 63,8'MB/sec.
Transferrate max.: 132.7 MB/sec.
Average: 104,9 MB/sec.
Burst Rate: 151,1 MB/sec.

configure sata as ahci mode

there should be no big gain in performance between sata 2 and sata 3 port using that hdd.




it would really be a nice upgrade to grab one of those crucial sata 3 ssd´s for your os and use the wd for data storage.
i`m on this on:

maybe you`ll get it for a lower price soon,as there is a new model
-c 400-announced.

What SATA mode have set in the UEFI?

You should have it in AHCI mode, if you have it in IDE mode it probably doesn´t performe that great.
