    INSTG8R & I (plus a few others iirc) did one using HDTach... good "end user/desktop pattern" type of test.

    IoMeter is another, albeit geared to "server patterns" type tests.

    * BOTH would be NICE to see!

    I.E./E.G.-> Each person does a IoMeter result, & a HDTach result...

    APK

    It's a bit "nerdy" but, there is an entire section in its .pdf file it comes with... it uses 2 programs (Iometer.exe & Dynamo.exe) & can run remotely, or locally.

    * READ IT!

    (Sorry to be so "terse" about it, but I have to run & meet a pal... we are "laying low" tonite (FRIDAY of all nites to do THAT), & chillin' to Philmz (movies) tonite @ my place, but I have to meet him @ a store (buying MuNcHiEz!!!)).

    APK

    P.S.=> Ordinarily (it's been a while since I used it myself) I would write it out for you, but AM in huge hurry... & I asked the SAME QUESTIONS myself.

    Again - sorry!

    It's NOT mandatory to run that for your tests man... if it is too much hassle, don't!

    (Still, would be NICE to see both test patterns types tested here)... apk

    Search thru my posts, look for the test we did there (have to make this short, my friend is waiting for me in the other room):

    ONE WITH INSTG8R in it, he has one... tore me apart on READS, but I got him on Access/Seek & CPU use (big on both here).

    APK

    P.S.=> BUT, I also use the FASTEST SATA I disks there is, huge buffers on them (16mb each) & IN RAID 0 (vs. his single disk perp. tech recording type) & 10,000rpm rate... hence, the faster Access/Seek times.

    My RAID 0 array is also driven via a Caching SATA controller w/ 128mb ECC RAM onboard it AND an Intel "Super I/O" firmware/cpu on it to offload my SYSTEM mobo CPU (hence, it showed 0% CPU-use)... apk

    PCI bus limited.

    I have a set of these in a intel mobo that will run much faster, faster than a set of the "almighty" raptors.

    erm, it doesnt say in the chart, so im guessing places are done by burst results?

    probably just worth noting results are by burst result. if your looking for maximum accuracy from the test tho use the long one, it still only takes like a minuite at most. (well for me anyway)

    You got some pretty nice (if not AMAZING) graphics scores. But the HDD performance really lags behind a chunk... All you need is a second HDD of the same size and generation of your current and make a RAID0 setup, and you will more than double that speed. Windows will boot much much faster, games will load much faster, as well as levels in games, or anything else, including windows page files and performing a defrag.

    Good luck!
