    Thats odd because my 10,000 WD VelociRaptor drive is only scoring 5.9 - my OCZ SSD gets 7.4 though

    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.

  7. Thanks to Arthur from:

    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?

    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.
