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.

Thanks for the info.

I tried out my system on the crystal benchmark. Are my scores any good?

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.

I've written a simplistic tool in Python to benchmark HDDs and SSDs. It is completely open-source and now in alpha stage, though you already could use it, and if interested, participate in development.
Here's the link: https://github.com/thodnev/MonkeyTest
