I'd like to know how you got on and if there's much point is using NCQ at all.. I'm pleased with the drive.. I'll be even happier if they never break (I've bought another for backups and transfering all my music to lossless!) On a side note.. I think I installed the SATA / IDE controller drivers that came with nForce4 Ultra.. even though at the time they said they're not certified. I seem to recall reading that this wasn't recommended(?) If I update the SATA driver through device manager, would this fix any issues I may have/get?
