Programs aren't always reliable for SMART hdd's. Don't worry about it.

When the post screen says its bad, or Windows thats when u worry.

That is fine, different HDDs will give different results...

My 160GB IDE in this is one bar off full for both and it is close to a year old...

But (and as Speedy said) as long as the BIOS S.M.A.R.T check says failure, or Windows tells you, that is when you start to worry...
