Looking for HDD benchmark utility

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey, I'm trying to find a good benchmarking utility for my HDD's.
I'm running two WD Caviar Black drives in RAID 0 and what to see the performance I'm getting.

Thanks,

I recommend HDTune and CrystalDiskMark. They're pretty much the standard on any review site.

This is what I have in mine to give you something to compare to. The first benchmark is two OCZ Vertex 4 SATA III 2.5" SSD 128GB in raid 0. The second is of 4 2TB Western Digital drives in raid 10. and the last of of one 2TB Western Digital drive. Your drive looks good to me, beats my single drive pretty good.

I found this page through Google, lol!
https://www.google.com/search?q=hdd+benchmark+tool

but HD Tune the results r easier to interpret than Crystal but it says the Drive must have no partitions installed yet, so if you already have stuff installed go for Crystal, which is also free.
