When installing sata drives in windows 7 are specific motherboard sata drivers a benifit to use over just letting windows 7 configure your drives automatically? In other words does the hard drive have the same speed and functions when letting windows automatically set them up. The reason I ask is that in device manager the drives are listed as ata drives when windows sets them up? I searched the web for answers but cannot find anything except that you don't, in most cases, have to use your own drivers which I already know from experience. Any help would be appreciated.
