It's now an 80pol-cable now i guess, with the thin cables. Hm, as I used a normal one OSX gave me a message that I'm not using one, I think evven my baord said so.

Hi guys, I too am suffering slow access speeds. Although I have a SATA board I've temporarily disabled it and just running the IDE HD and optical drive which is on a single IDE interface.

From ASP:
Hitachi HDS721616PLAT80:

Capacity: 128 GB
Model: Hitachi HDS721616PLAT80
Revision: P22OA60A
Serial Number: PV2300Z2S27G7F
Removable Media: No
Detachable Drive: No
BSD Name: disk0
Protocol: ATA
Unit Number: 0
Socket Type: Internal
Low Power Polling: No
Mac OS 9 Drivers: No
Partition Map Type: MBR (Master Boot Record)
S.M.A.R.T. status: Verified
Volumes:
Leopard:
Capacity: 128 GB
Available: 98.03 GB
Writable: Yes
File System: Journaled HFS+
BSD Name: disk0s1
Mount Point: /


My xbench Disk test results are:
Disk Test 18.03
Sequential 13.82
Uncached Write 10.55 6.48 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Write 10.87 6.15 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read 25.36 7.42 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read 15.84 7.96 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Random 25.90
Uncached Write 15.39 1.63 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Write 19.91 6.37 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read 85.38 0.61 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read 36.40 6.75 MB/sec [256K blocks]

This gives me a total score of 74.68 when running the whole suite. However, if I disable Disk Test then my overall result sky rockets. Any ideas?

I think the disk speed is what's causing Leopard to feel sluggish particularly when doing disk intensive work.

What's the chipset on your motherboard? Oh... nVidia 570... Does anyone build a .kext for that chipset?

Running both 10.5.8 and 10.6.4 on my stinking AMD/ATi machine...

Yes it is a 570 board. Even copying data from disk images or burning DVDs causes 'kernel_task' to use almost 100% CPU on both cores.

I decided to be brave and install MeDevil's latest AppleNForceATA.kext - much better now!
However, Leopard is only reporting my HD as 128Gb when in fact its 160Gb. ASP and Disk Utility tell me that its 160Gb but the capacity is 128Gb **rubs chin**
