4PDA2V Deluxe

Hi all,
I have a SATA issuse with this board, i have a SATA Barracuda 120g Hard drive and 2 SATA connectors from the intel ich5, i also have raid from a highpoint connector. i installed my drive,however all benchmarks and windows test report it is running in UDMA5 mode.i have a maxtor 60g ATA 133 and my benchmarks are only slightly better with the SATA drive witch i put down to the extra 60g and not the SATA interface. I know i am ment to install 3rd party drivers on install of XP, but what drivers? all i have are for the Highpoint raid controller! does this SATA run through raid? if not which drivers do i install?
lots of questions but hopefully someone can help as im about to reinstall and try again.

SATA is marginally quicker that PATA and in some instances, even slower. Unless you are running a RAID setup, don't expect much from SATA over PATA.
