Question about PC Desktops
Choose RAID mode.. that should enable AHCI. (as per wikipedia) on your motherboard so that means.. that if you're installing the os on this hdd you may want to use the raid driver for it which is likely what's in the ASUS cd you got so your os get to use the hdd as it's meant to be used.
you may also want to make sure you're using the right sata connector on your motherboard: check page 33
the problem could laso lay in your cables.. it's know the average may be affected by faulty SATA cable or faulty SATA power cable (powersupply issue)
you may also want to run a backup of your data and then run a defrag and a checkdisk on the drive, and it's probably also worth it to rung Seatools (download from this page: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/ ) to check the health of your hd.
Also try to update the SATA controller drivers or the motherboard chipset
lastly, post the results of your tests here on fixya or better yet: in here: http://forums.seagate.com for further follow up.
try each recommendation one at a time and then test the speed of your hd to see if there's improvement.. make sure you back up before you do anything drastic.
good luck (it took me 2 hours to pos
