Thanks on both counts. I wondered what was messing with power settings.

I don't see it posted anywhere in this thread that one of the main reasons for this utility's development was to find the sweet spot (short stroke) on the disk when doing your partitions.

I have 3 drives in my notebook:
Intel 80GB mSATA II SSD, SSDMAEMC080G2H (OS boot and programs only - no games)
Hitachi 500Gb 7200RPM SATA II HDD, HTS725050A9A364
Hitachi 750Gb 7200RPM SATA II HDD, HTS727575A9E364

Each one of the HDD's are short stroke partitioned into 4 sections, the 1st on each HDD is for the fastest reads, games and program downloads, and the slowest for documents to music/movies/backups....
The slowest part of the disks (F & K) I just split into whatever I felt I needed.
Hitachi 500Gb, D/E/F/G
Hitachi 750Gb, H/J/K/L

1st, The Hitachi 500Gb HDD
This is the full HDD.

This is my 1st partition.

This was too small, but faster.

This was the fastest, too small as well.


2nd, The Hitachi 750Gb HDD:
This is the full HDD.

This is my 1st partition.

This was too small, but faster.

This was the fastest, too small as well.

Nice test Boshko although the burst rate doesn't make much sense compared to the average.

Here's a shot of my SSD benchmark from HD Tune. The values look as I would expect except the burst rate, which seems low. This is a new build and the machine is running very well with no performance issues that I'm aware of, but I would like some other opinions on this aspect of the benchmark.

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
CPU: Intel 3770K
RAM: Kingston HyperX Black, 8gb x 2
SSD: Crucial M4 128gb
