Posted · Original PosterOP

i have 4 wd 1tb blue hdd but for some reason 2 is listed msachi and other 2 iastora. When i ran the benchmark both seems to be reading and writing the same except one of msahci was 50mb read and write slower then the rest. Any clue?

The board you're using might be using two different SATA controllers, one of them being an Intel one (Intel SATA controller uses iaStor drivers).

 

You might want to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (driver) or switch everything to msahci (generic driver) like in this tut:

Switching from AHCI to IDE (legacy) or RAID or vice-versa does that (boot problem), installing different drivers doesn't do that.
