That has longer tests I do believe.
i'll look at em
jmicron raid controller
just wanna share my hd tach result with you guys..
i set up 2x740adfd raid0 via Jmicron controller, but the result is not impressive.
may be i did not do it properly. just config the raid from bios, but raid software tool can find it. however windows can see it ... don't know why
i find the jmicron controllers don't perform all that great overall...
but your speeds look actually relatively decent... but below what you SHOULD be getting on a quality raid controller such as intels matrix
HD Tach 3 isn't supported under Vista. But, that HDTune app is.
if you want to see your HD Tach result to compare with other, it can still be running in Vista, but in compatibility mode for XP.
but if you want to measure the performance of your own disk drives then the HDTune program is okay too.
or if you use Everest, it also has its disk benchmarking tool for running synthetic tests on disk drives, RAID arrays, SCSI drives, etc.
Yes, I've had a few programs I've had to setup to use Compatibility Mode for XP since installing Vista 32-bit.
Also, I really like PCWizard 2008, as well. It works fine without any extra effort.
It seems that Vista really demands the user to jump through a few more hoops to get certain programs running. HDTach is working now after setting it up to run in XP Compatibility Mode, PLUS ticking the option to Run...as administrator.
Here are the results on my newest drive with both the 8MB and 32MB tests:
i ran HDTach in Vista long time ago, i might have forgotten or have already silently suggested you to do that. lol.
but i think Judas wants to see something even more accurate than the HDTach results.
actually i'm a little peeved with the latest hdtach... not sure what the author was thinking... but the previous verison of hdtach ran OUT of the box with vista... where as the new one you have to jump through hoops for.... quite backwards and rediculious me thinks..
in any case...
Yeah it would be nice if hdtach was updated significantly to produce a little more graphs and results..
for example CPU usage being graphed at the same time of the benchmark... would produce some interesting results...
more tests overall, larger test formats.....
sisoft isn't very reliable atm.... imo..
that is pretty good and much better results Judas, no one is gonna beat that one for a while.
when i have some time to play with that again, i will see what i can do anyway.
you have plenty of free disk space?
i would have a larger partition size for Vista, like 80-100GB partition and leave the paging file as an auto manage size for all drives.
Yeah i've auto managed page file.
but i set the main C partition to 50gb ..... i install all my games to a completely seperate partition... which is 500gb, the next is video (HD-DVDs and such) which is 1000gb and then another which is 1000gb and one last one which is just about 300gb...
i've got WAY to much freaking space right now lol....
i really which they made high performance hardrives that were say 100gb each......i'm more then happy with running 600gb total....
i think you will and should see the CPU % gets lower once the processor has been overclocked, your memory subsystem is a more optimized.
little bit of a better result...
3 x sas drives 15k.5
but that's just a smidge slower then my results of running 3 seagate 7200.11's in raid 0 on the intel ich9r chipset.
with only a 0.9ms random access time variation.
Could you run the FULL test instead o the quick,
Considering that if i were to run the quick test, my scores would be over 1000mb/s average lol
250GB slice of 6 x 7200.11's
Panging and Judas on vacation? :sleep:
it's a pretty high read speed. i don't have 6 empty and fast drives right now, i give up. it has to be Judas.
