    How does my disk performance look?

      Hello all. I just did a read test on my 4 drives with HDtune.  This is my first build for use with CS6 (mostly Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom).  All new drives. Asus P9x79 Pro Mobo, Intel 3930k chip.

       

      C: 256GB Samsung 840 pro connected to 6GB/s SATA slot - has OS and program files installed

      D (Marvell RAID 0): 2x Western Digital 1TB Caviar black hard drives which I have connected to the 2 - 6GB/s Marvell SATA slots - empty except for 2 images of my C drive

      E: 256GB Plextor m5pro connected to 6GB/s SATA slot - empty

      F (Intel RAID 0): 2x Western Digital 1TB Caviar black hard drives which I have connected to the 2 - 3GB/s SATA slots - empty

       

      Below are the screenshots from HDtune.  Do the numbers look right?

      Would it be beneficial to run a write test?  Apparently all the info on the drive gets erased with HDtune.  Thanks for the help everyone.
