7200RPM SATA disks produce 5.9
10000RPM SAS disks produce 6.3
15000RPM SAS disks produce 6.7
Not tried SSD though
is your velociraptor SAS or SATA? as that does make a difference when it comes to non SSD drives
Gaming graphics: 7.8
Primary HD: 7.3
12GB 1333 DDR3
Corsair 128GB SSD
What would be quite interesting is if people also posted their disk sub-scores (especially if you have an SSD or SAS disk). My SSD gets an overall disk score of 7.7 with the following sub-scores...
Code:Average Throughput Sequential Read 7.5 253.50583 MB/s, ioSize = 65536, 3,868 IOs/sec Random Read 7.7 195.28000 MB/s, ioSize = 16384, 11,918 IOs/sec Responsiveness Average IO Rate 7.9 0.98000 ms/IO Grouped IOs 7.3 9.24807 units Long IOs 7.9 2.49660 units Overall 7.7 23.08870 units Cap Passed FALSE
The sub-scores can be found under "Disk Metrics" in the most recent "Disk.Assessment (Recent).WinSAT.xml" file located in %SystemRoot%\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore. You can also check if the score of your HDD is capped.

If I want to upgrade my hard drive I'm better spending the money on an SSD rather than a velociraptor drive, would you agree?
Need an SSD me thinks
Processor: i7 950
RAM: 12GB 1600Mhz Tri
Gfx: ATi 6850
Primary Disk: SSD SATA2
Here is my updated score after a few upgrades.
My new PC
i7 2600 (3.4GHz, 4 cores)
1TB 7200rpm Samsung
Get a 64GB crucial C300 as a boot drive in that beastie chrisbrown boost that hdd score up to 7.9
Curious though, what made you go with a gigabyte board? No UEFI Also don't want to be picky but 6GB of ram a bit of an odd number for a dual channel machine?
mrbios - I was on a fairly strict budget and the UD4 seemed to present the best bang for my buck.
And the disk performance is perfectly acceptable...I'm not *overly* concerned about how this thing scores.
Manages CS:Source that I play at 300fps.
