Heres the printout of the HDtach3 quicktest I just ran:
pretty decent... like the stable throughput... no discernible drop off as time proceeds
whats the standard maxtor netting you?
My MOBO only has two SATA slots so the Maxtor is temporarily offline, I'm expecting an Adaptec AAR-1210SA 2 Port PCI SERIAL ATA RAID CONTROLLER card ASAP to add another 2 ports to my machine.
I'll post those results when I'm setup
On your RAID 0 Raptors. Looks like you got them singing along pretty nicely.
One question for Sazar, others.
This HDTach tester, does it matter if the HD's are full or empty?, fresh XP install? different RAID chipset? The reason I am asking is that I am getting totally different results from my HD's than others in the site. This is the first time that I use this benchmark tester.
Felt like I would join in
FYI - my test was on a fresh install of windows XPP with virtually nothing on the drives except OS! Will try again after I've loaded some games etc...
what kind of results are you getting?
post the results so we can see
full or empty should not matter... for my setup... testing primary to secondary yields better results on my secondary mainly because I have nothing else running from it during the test...
general results should look somewhat like EP's in terms of shape... a gradual decline basically...
This is for my machine listed below in sig.
I think its the type of raid configuration you have...
mubbers has a straight striped configuration... your's does not show to be the same therefore it is not goin to be as fast as EP and mubbers...
I did set it up as striped, even played with different striped kB sizes. I will check my setup again. I must of missed something. Oh well, it does perform very well for me anyways. Thanks Sazar.
I haven't defragged in a month or so.
Maxtor 120's SATA
1 defragg pass later.
