The drops are likely caused by the OS accessing the drive during the test. Probably no cause for concern.

Raptor X I believe. The model isn't the issue (in my mind at least), it is the dips in the transfer rate that concern the OP.

Well I was concerned about the overall speed also. A friend of mine has a WD caviar black 1TB drive and he is getting much higher transfer rates. His drive is also his OS drive.

The Raptor's are not great for transfer rates - the newest 7200rpm high capacity drives are faster in this respect.

The advantage of the Raptor is the low access times, which is the main reason they are great for OS use.
