would I notice a difference with a ssd drive - Page 14

post #131 of 187
Alright, so these 2 programs (ATTO Disk Benchmark and CrystalDiskMark) are just 2 of the few benchmarking programs that you can use on your new solid state drive when you get it.

Others include HD Tune 2.55 and AS SSD. However, I think ATTO Disk Benchmark is the best and the least confusing because it will show the advertised Read and Write speeds if you are actually getting them.

What type of benchmark type programs do guys use to test there cpu, memory, stuff like that? any that are easy to use? I have been wanting to mess with overclocking a bit outside of the auto stuff that the asus bios has but don't know all the ins and outs of playing with the settings yet.

You don't use the two programs that I just downloaded to test the speeds of other drives (hdd) as well to compare them?

Well like I said, it's probably my fault. Look at what's at the top of their "Download" page (linked below) that I accessed from here:

http://crystalmark.info/download/ind...rystalDiskMark

Yeah, it's CrystalDiskInfo. So I kinda copied the link location blindly without really making sure it said "CrystalDiskMark" on the page.

So then I noticed my error and copied correct link location.

I don't have a regular schedule. Unfortunately, I kinda got myself hooked on 5-hour Energy. I kinda take 2-3 every day which means I'm usually up gaming and playing around on OCN for 20-24 hours, and then I sleep two 6-hour "shifts", as I call them (so, I basically lay in bed for 12 hours, sleeping 6 hours straight twice in a row). If I wake up after the first 6 hours, then I feel like I didn't get enough sleep. Unfortunately, this also means I can't really predict when I'll be awake and when I'll be asleep. Although, I can approximate it.

I've used 3D Mark,which is mostly for video graphics benchmarking.
AIDA64,and Passmark is a CPU & memory benchmark.
Prime 95 and Linx are for stress testing after applying a overclock.
Moar cores!

Ah thanks, are those free to download or do you have to buy them? If free I will have to look around for them tomorrow, not sure I can take anymore downloads tonight and try to run them, my head may just explode lol!

Well, I don't know about overclocking your system, but if it can overclock, then you can test its stability with programs that are named "Prime95", "LinX", "IntelBurnTest", "OCCT", and even "MemTest" (by "HCi Design" - all other "Memtest" programs are just error-checking and need to run from a bootable drive because the others aren't compatible with Windows like HCi's MemTest).

However, I would also try to find better air cooling.

However, overclocking is not for impatient people. It also requires a person to be very comfortable tinkering with their computer (so you absolutely cannot be afraid to open up your computer, take it completely apart, and then put it back together again).

To be honest, I don't benchmark at all. I just go by real-world performance: my system is faster than I need it to be, so I'm happy.

I get into a very bad habbit of staying up until I am totally tired which at times takes awhile. Since I don't have a set sch it gets bad at times. Not as much in the summer but winter its bad lol. Stayed up playing with the computer when I bought parts for it 24 hours, think that was when I learned how to do raid 0 too lol!
