  2. For some reason "enable write caching on the disk" can be checked, but below it I see "this device does not allow its write cache setting to be modified". I have AHCI enabled in the BIOS as well as Intel Matrix Storage Manager installed. Is there something I'm overlooking? Motherboard is a Supermicro X7DAE (5000x chipset) and I have two Raptor X's with two Seagate 500gb 7200.8's.

    The Newest SCSI's

  15. Someone care to sort through theInq's poor wording choice(s) and clarify this?
