low Windows Experence Index on SSD Raid 0

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
I had a 60gb ssd and my WEI was 5.9 on hard disk

I added another ssd and put them in raid 0 and re-installed windows and still get a score of 5.9 for hard disk

With the Raid 0 setup my HDTune speeds jumped to almost 300 mb/s on read and my write speed is around 170 mb/s


I thought maybe windows was reading my other Hard drives so I disconnected every HDD I have except for the two SSD's in the raid 0. I re-ran the WEI three times and got the same 5.9 result every time.

I know this is not important as far as performance goes...but its like scoring a touchdown and not getting credit for it.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Windows Experience Index is simply horrible. If you are seeing performance gains while using a real hdd benchmarking program don't worry about it.

You get 5.9 for HDDs.
To get more, you need SSDs only. (or the 10k RPM HDDs AFAIK)

Weird. I've seen dual 10k raptors hit well into the 6 range. You should definitely be a bit faster than that...considering that the 5400rpm hard drive in my laptop scores 5.9.

Are there any chipset drivers you're missing? Is your RAID array using on-board or a dedicated card? Just thinking of something that Windows might mis-read as you having a HDD and default to 5.9 for some reason.

Like I said, I had a 5.9 when I had just a single ssd. It's always been 5.9

The chipset drivers are up to date
I loaded the newest raid 0 driver during windows install
I'm using the onboard intel sata slots
