Ive had a bit of a breakthru, although I still need to check this now with SATA2 on.
I went back to SATA and the benchmark was still terrible, this puzzled me. I uninstalled 84.43 beta and went back to 82.25
WOW, and I thought Oblivion was running a little jerky! 84.43 suck :hit:
Thats close enough to my original bench to confirm the driver update which completely jogged my mind was the cause! 82.25 are great
I'm now going to enable SATA2 again and see what I get, will post the results.
