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.
Your read data looks reasonable, I do not have any of your specifically devices. I always run the write test just after I get them because it has to be done before or without formatting. I have weeded out several drives because of write rate problems.
