8RDA3+ with WD Raptor

I have the latest bios and the latest nForce drivers installed and my WD Raptor is benching slightly under an ATA100/2MB cache IDE drive. Am I missing a setting or tweak somewhere to make the SATA drive run closer to its potential ?

First off, I noticed a yellow "!" om the SM Bus Controller in the device manager. After reinstalling the latest nForce drivers from nVidia, the yellow "!" went away and the drive benches slightly higher than an ATA133 drive. The Sil3112a driver is dated 5/9/2003 version 1.0.0.32. Should the SATA drive perform better than it is ?
