    On intel boards you can use intel's application accelerator to adjust disk
    drive accoustic management settings.
    Is there an equivalent on via amd boards?

    Does it have any negatives in performance or otherwise ?

    Intel app accelerator lets you choose (on drives that support it) the
    accoustic management setting.
    Ie fastest performance or quietest operation.

    Many maxtor drive arrive set to quiet mode. By turning off you can shave
    2-3ms off the access times and to me it hardly sounds much louder.
    Most of my noise is from fans.

    Download the Feature Tool ver.1.92. It allows changing of the AAM.

    Thanks for that as I have some IBM/Hitachi drives.

    I've used it on several non-Hitachi/IBM hard drives.
