I just installed my new Soyo Dragon+ w/ an Athlon XP 1800+. Everything is awesome except my HD performance is crap. I use Nero CDR software to check my drive speed and it is shown as 4900KB/s. Previously I was getting 27500KB/s on my old board with an ATA/100 controller. The BIOS(2BA1) does detect the drive as an ATA/100. I did install the lastest 4in1 drivers, but no luck. Anyone have any ideas how I an get the ATA/100 up to speed again? Thank you.

WOW! I wonder why my performace is not up to snuff with yours then. I know the 75GXP are fast, but that is crazy if yours is that much higher. I have a Maxtor 40Gb 7200RPM ATA/100 - Have any suggestions for a speed increase?
I have the Soyo SY-K7V Dragon+ with on-board Promise FastTrak Lite RAID with a pair of 40GB IBM 60GXP drives striped in a RAID-0 array.
I ran SiSoft Sandra 2001 and scored something like 43000 (under WinME). The trial version of Sandra wouldn't run under WinXP, so I don't know if that performance carries over today.
