What type of hard drive do you have to get that 7.2 score? I have a new hdd and its only 5.9

SSDs have a significant performance advantage so they need to leave headroom for them. Hell, my 4-spindle mechanical RAID 0 barely rates a 6.5 .

Em.. Updated few drivers, and I like my new results

It could be better, but dont have ideas why "Desktop performance for Windows Aero" is so low, only 3.5 When gaming graphics is 5.1..
Maybe I missed something? Any sugestions how can I improve that?
My system specs:
Acer Aspire 7720G (Laptop)
*Intel Core 2 Duo procesor T5750 (2GHz, 667 Mhz, 2mb cache L2 cache)
* Geforce 9300M G
* 3 GB DDR2
* 250 GB HDD

Waiting for your answers, u can PM me too if u like

I love his avatar, lol. But I wouldn't put any political thing for my avatar any ways because I'd end up pissing off people, lol. And I would expect the same from others too. So, yes, I could see his avatar being a bit offensive to Obama supporters.

You're right. I should change it. No need for it on these forums, I just felt strongly about it before and wanted to send a message to anyone I could that Im one of the few that feel this way. That mentality doesnt belong here and should be checked at the door. Im at work now and Ill change it when I get another moment.

Yes, what a new processor and mobo will do...

Finally got my AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition and Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P Motherboard in and to my surprise the mobo was too big for the HP Pavilion case. I ended up pulling out the Antec Sonata case I had put away, gutted it and started from scratch putting together a new system with SATA 500GB HDD, 2x SATA Lightscribe Optical drives, 4x 2GB DDR2 800MB Corsair modules (8GB), PCIe BFG 512MB GDDR3 9600GT OC video card. Hooked everything up, fired it up into BIOS inserted Windows 7 7232 x64 in the DVD drive, clean installed and reinstalled everything and BOY!!! this thing is fast. I was tickled to death... My WEI went up also:

You mentioned "write caching" (ie: from the device manager) which is different from "write-back cache". Make sure you right click on the RAID volume in your Intel Matrix Storage Console and choose to enable the "write-back cache".
I was being generic - I turned off all of it, write caching in dev mgr and write-back caching in the Storage Mgr.. Sorry, should've been more clear.

Edit: I should also mention it increased the WEI, not the performance! Write-back cache enabled will often double your disk write speed, at the expense of being succeptible to corrupting your filesystem if you lose power or crash the system suddenly - battery backup / UPS recommended.

Here's my current WEI, with system disk now a 4-spindle RAID 0 instead of RAID 10 array.

Write-back caching doesn't necessarily cause loss of data. It's different that the write buffer clearing options in the device manager.
