Needing help to Understand????

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a Western Digital 10,000 RPM Raptor 600Gig Hard Drive. I run the Performance test on my Windows 7 and it scores my primary hard drive as a 5.9. MY CPU get a 7.6
My Ram a 7.8
My graphics get 6.6
So what is the problem. I want to get this drive up on performance to make it all at least a 6.5. Can someone tell me how. and thanks.

You can't.
Mechanical drives such as your Raptor can only score 5.9.
You need an SSD or a RAID0 to score higher.

This is the problem with mechanical drives.

You'll never get higher than 5.9 on a single mech drive. You'll need to go with SSD or RAID to get above that.

I don't mean to be rude but the Windows Performance Test is a joke.

Use HDTune

No,

You will need two drives of the same make/model to get the most out of it.

So basically, get another raptor.
