    I ordered another WD SATA drive. It is the same as my RAID setup I will use it and run this comparison again later. This way it will be more accurate.

    Okay, here mine look a bit different - AHCI is faster..
    and, btw, it still does not explain why, on a 939 socket board, temperatures display just fine under AHCI

    Did you turn SMART off when running the tests? SMART is enabled in SATA IDE mode. SATA AHCI mode has disabled SMART. SMART causes a performance decrease. This could be the reason for the difference.

    SMART is always enabled in the sysbios - I have no way to enable it separately under AHCI

    I know no SMART is the culprit but I can do nothing about it..

    I went into bios and enabled smart I got a less desirable result on the score for my SATAI IDE mode.
    SATAI IDE mode with SMART enabled in BIOS.

    Im going back into Bios to disable SMART. It's not very SMART for me. I don't want anything SMART that has a negative effect on the HDD performance.

    I do not really care who botched the job - I just would want it fixed one way or the other

    Embarrassing at least for the manufacturer who sells a product that fails to deliver:

    1) no usb keyboard/mouse system power on
    2) no SMART under AHCI
    3) no monitor wakeup from system sleep

    looks like a lousy job done, no?

    SMART with AHCI is dependent on the chipset. Not the cpu socket. What did that old motherboard have a VIA chipset? accually It depends on the SATA controller which is in the Southbridge of your motherboards chipset. The SB710.

    mate, no need to spin in circles

    it's all basic functionality every mobo should provide. Whoever botched it does not matter to the consumer...consumer expects a fully working product.

    Yeah who cares who's mistake it is as long as someone gets it right. That someone is most of the time the consumer. We are either satisfied with the product or not. If we are not satisfied we don't use it.

    problem in your logic - consumer does not know when he gets sold a limited/castrated/faulty product. Consumer paid full bucks not for a lite product.

    If that board would have been ~50 bux (something) you can feel it's a lite product but not when you pay 3 times as much. This is ugly!

    done here?
