After a clean install of Win7 Ultimate, I was quite surprised to find my primary hard disk score remained at a 5.9. My boot drive is made up of 2 10,000RPM cheetah SATA drives in a RAID stripe (RAID0). I'm wondering if this test is still maxed out at 5.9. If you got higher than 5.9, what kind of drive are you using? I'm sure SSD's score higher.

I also did a clean install of Win7 Ultimate and scored 5.9 for my HDD. My boot drive is Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000HLFS 300GB 10000 RPM. One of the fastest SATA hard drives made.
