1st Build HDD problem

  1. Ok so just completed my first build.

    Everything went smooth. Very smooth actually. My only problem that I have noticed is with the memory that is listed for the HDD.
    I have a Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb

    For some reason it will only recognize 230gb. Anyone know what could be causing this? any help will be much appreciated.

    It's caused by mathmatics. It's the way the drive manufacturers list and calculate the number of bytes, megs and gigs. Perfectly normal.

    JMMD,

    Thanks for the response. It makes me feel alot better knowing that this is normal and not anything I might have done to cause this.
    Thanks again.
