Hey guys, sorry its been so long ... Dai i dont understand what you mean...

Im a tech support admin for the xbox side of MS so I dont get alot of free time but im back and I want to give an update see if anyone has been able to find anything on this one...

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (Thuban) standard config
AS Rock M3A770DE
AM Bios P1.70
DDR 3 Dual 2Gx2 Standard config
(only one) HD5850 RV870 Saphire Tech 1G mem Standard config
PSU 800watt Rocketfish (dont know specifics)

So heres the update:
After about three weeks from a clean install the system starts to get slugish
If I then rebbot reboot time goes from 20 - 30 seconds to about 5 - 10 minutes

What Ive done thus far:
I have installed on two diferent Hardrives
I have scanned all drives and found no errors using the several utilities on hirens boot cd and i have no errors
I have reinstalled windows 7x64 several times

Im actually typing ths post from the Mini XP environment in Hirens Boot Cd
Im in the process of doing a low level format on the hdd's
After which im disableing all smart and extra features on the drives
im leaning torward this thing being drive related but im really lost on this
any sugestions would be well recived. Thankyou
