Default SATAII HD showing as ATA133??

Hey,
I have a DFI Lanparty NF4-SLI board and a WD250GB Sata2 drive.

When my pc boots up it shows a WD 250GB at ATA133.

Is this a setting I have incorrect or can I trust my hard drive is connected and getting the speeds it should?

Thanks
Smitty

i think its fine. i'll check the way mine registers when i get home as i have the same motherboard and the 8mb cache model of that drive. i'm pretty sure its just a trick the NF4 chipset uses for compatability though. thats why (to my knowledge) you shouldn't need SATA drivers for a hdd connected to the nVIDIA controller on an NF4 motherboard

Thanks Nitestick. I'll check back tomorrow. It all seems to run well so there is no problem, just wanted to double check.

hmmmm :/ mine says SATA. i think its still like i said though. probably because my boot drive is actually ATA133. if my thinking about it being for compatability is correct it would only be necessary for the boot drive.
