Windows Experience Primary Hard Disk Tags: SSD Hard Drives Storage Last response: March 3, 2011 12:08 AM in Storage Share riggz March 2, 2011 10:05:39 PM Hello, I just built my new system and was curious why the primary hard disk rating in Windows Experience Index was 7.3. Here are the specs: Mobo: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R CPU: Intel Core i7-950 Mem: G.SKILL DDR3-1333 PC3-10666 Tri-Channel 12gb HDD: 2 x Crucial 64GB 2.5" SSD C300 SATA 6Gb/s GPU: Gigabyte GTX 460 1GB PSU: Corsair TX850 OS: Windows 7 Pro 64bit I have the Crucial SSD's running in RAID0 on the mobo's SATA3 ports. I kinda figured if anything, that would not be the lowest score. Here are my scores: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz: 7.5 Memory (RAM) 12.0 GB: 7.5 Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460: 7.6 Gaming graphics 4095 MB Total available graphics memory: 7.6 Primary hard disk 74GB Free (119GB Total): 7.3 More about : windows experience primary hard disk tecmo34 a c 143 G Storage March 3, 2011 12:08:10 AM I would not put in faith in WEI rating!! In this thread a hard drive scored a 7.3 and it is widely know that mechanical hard drives don' score above 5.9... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/266967-32-high-hard-d... If you want to truly test your performance, I would run ATTO, HDTune, CrystalDiskMark or AS SSD Benchmark, which all are hard drive performance testing programs. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
