    I built this comp back in august and my primary HD is a VelociRaptor 300gb
    when I run the Performance Tool for Win7 64bit Professional it list everything
    as 7.9 or 8.0 as far as the ratings go except my HDD it says the transfer rates are very slow. Am I missing something or is there something I need to adjust either in the bios or in windows to correct this?? Comp Specs are in my sig. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you are getting a 5.9 rating, that's standard in Win7 even for a velociraptor...... if it's lower than that you may have an issue.

    2 x WD 640GB Blue RAID0 on ICH10R, I also get 5.9.. I will try soon with 4 x WD 640GB Blue RAID0 SHORT STROKED to 4 x 80GB on ICH10R... I bet it will still be 5.9...

    Yeah , it looks like +5.9 is reserved for SSD disks or sata III ones

    I'll have to find my paper work but I would swear the 300gb Raptor is a Sata3.0 drive but if 5.9 is what M$ gives then hell I got nothing to worry about!! :)

    Yeah, 5.9 seems to be the upper limit for any mechanical drive. That's why hardware companies love MS, they are great hardware purchase drivers.

    the way to kick the 5.9 barrier is either with a multi raid 0 configuration at which point you have to tweak a few settings to get 6.0/-6.5 with standard disks.

    OR

    like mentioned, SSD's, i do not think a standard disk with SATA 3.0 capabilities is going to make a difference.

    I spoke too soon. I am now running 4 x 640 GB WD Blue drives in RAID0 and I get 6.5. They are short stroked to 320GB total array size, so I get 400MB/s average read transfer rates and 8ms average access time.

    wow that's still slower then my 6x Seagate 7200.11's 500gb in raid 0 pushing 630-750mb/s 2 years ago

    i'd have thought today those WD caviar black 640's would be pulling better figures
