Correct it is TCQ mine are WD740GD FLCO's, I havent messed with these since I installed them 2yrs ago so I'm trying to reinform myself so bare with me as I also forgot what the jumpers were for but found that info here, http://wdc.custhelp....ated=1071171477
So has anyone with Raptors enabled spread spectrum? I guess I can try it, but afaik all the spectrum stuff in bios and on the HD's is for emi emissions, and basically it makes the equipment work out of sync so its not pulsing/emiting at the same times so emi doesnt spike as high. Basically it should be a good idea for a HTPC or sound editing where emi can affect sound output/processsing.
What exactly is the Enable Command queuing for in windows? I read all of this thread and I believe that most of it was talking about turning it off or on, also I believe someone mentioned that it was more for a multiuser environmentEdit:
I found a page on microsoft's website and it said basically when on it sends a message to flush the cache so that its safer yet slower for data, then on another OS(forgot which one 2000 I think) there is another option for Power Protection and if you have that on and enable cache it will use the cache on the HD's. I tried with both off and the results sucked on mine especially for writes that were the best numbers with in on.
