    Default wd raptor 450gb

    I am using a program called speccy its from ccleaners company piriform
    it is similar to hw monitor
    I find all the temp readings close to the bios
    One thing thats weird is it says my hd is sata3
    is there any other hardware way in windows or the bios to validate that
    I had the machine built and I had presumed the raptor was on sata 6
    If i knew more I could look inside but I dont

    The new raptors are SATA III but it is all advertising bs. They do not use even 3G of bandwidth.

    but does that mean the builder didnt hook up the drive to sataIII where the diagnostic program says its on sata II
    is there a way in windows or the bios to tell if it is so
    thanks for your rapid answer

    Ok you have me confused. There is SATA II and SATA III. No SATA 6. SATA II has 3G and SATA III has 6G of bandwidth. I think your ccleaner is showing SATA III but I may have it backwards. Ccleaner may go by Sata 2 or Sata 3. Crossheck you mobo manual and it will show which ports are which but this is all irrellevant. The Raptor will performvthe same in either port. It will never even use 3G of bandwidth.

    You cannot change SATA II to SATA III however you can change from IDE to AHCI.

    The drive is in either a SATA II port or SATA III.

    Some hard drives are SATA-III 6GBs capable, but come with a jumper pin on them (and enabled) that makes them compatible with SATA-II 3GBs. speed controllers. Their speed is hobbled at the factory.
    This may be the case here.

    Also, the drive could very well be a SATA-III 6GBs speed drive that is connected to a SATA-II port on your motherboard. If it's on a SATA-III port and only has a cable that's rated at SATA-II transfers, that's what you'll get. Speccy will report a SATA-III drive, because the drive will report it's capabilities when queried.

    So,........you have to check the SATA port's speed that you're connected to, then make sure that the Cable is a SATA-III cable, and then check to see if a jumper needs to be changed around.

    Looking at you motherboard's specs, I see that all of the SATA ports are SATA-III 6GBs speed ports. So you would verify the cable, and the jumper on the drive,....and make sure that 6GBs speed is enabled on the controller in your BIOS too.

    Neil, the raptors are old news. They don't even use 3G of bandwidth. They changed them to SATA III when SSD's became somewhat popular and it was an advertising bullcrap to help sales from WD. They perform the same in SATA II. Either port makes no difference.

    Yes, I know about Raptor drives. Noisy 10K-RPM and hot running too. The OP wanted answers to certain questions that I was trying to provide. (or at least how to get them)

    Before SSD's became popular, Raptors were the Sh*t. They ~are~ fast platter drives.

    Some of those SATA ports on his board use the Marvel controller and do not get great performance.

    With the proper setup and settings, he may be able to tweak his performance a little.

    It won't matter which SATA port the Raptor is connected to, it won't run any faster. SATA III (6G) i's marketing hype for hard drives. They can't run at SATA III speeds, only SSDs can.
