    I have a P35 chipset on my mainboard too, but 2 disks in RAID 1 mode. My score is 5,4 (the same on my Vista setup).... Intel hasn´t released any drivers for Win7 until now so i use the native driver from Microsoft. Don´t worry, it is fast enough :)

    The only thing i have noticed in Hardware properties: I had to install the SM-Bus driver manually from the unzipped Vista chipset driver package (latest 9.x). Works great!

    Install the Vista drivers with Vista compatibility mode.

    Thank you for this tip, worked for me and made an enormous difference to the SATA access read/write speeds. Probably improved something else too, but I don't I know what!

    Its a good beta this W7.

    which driver-version do you install? I've used the 9.1.0.1007, installing without error on windows 7 (without vista-compatibility-modus...).

    Storage-driver from windows 7 is 8.6.2.7 (automaticly installed), the latest version i've found is 8.6.0.1007. which version do you have?

    Regards,

    You know I didn't check whether it was the latest or not, not like me! The version I installed was v8301011, but I checked my drivers folder and see I also have inf_v9001007, so may try that one later when I get chance again to look at it.
    I don't think the MS default drivers were much good, or they didn't install properly, can't say which, but the Intel ones so much better. Drive score went from '3' to '5.9', I know it doesn't mean much in the outside world, but measuring like for like it went from 3 bananas to almost 6 bananas!

    By the way, have you got a link for 9.1.0.1007?
