    Wow...something is amiss. I have a core I71 920, 6 Gb Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600, Nvidea GTX275, and two Raptors running in RAID 0. My WEI basee was 5.9 for the HDD while running a single Raptor and 5.9 in RAID 0. None of the other levels made 7.9. What's up with that?

    Edit: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard and fixed CPU ID

    What RAID controller are you using on what motherboard? Since you mentioned a Core i7 CPU (I assume you mean 920, not 620?), you're probably running on the Intel ICH10 southbridge RAID controller. If so, did you install the Intel Matrix software for it and enable Write Back Caching through it?

    Whoops...920 it is. Asus P6T Deluxe V2 mobo...ICH10R controller, yes...and I did install the Intel Matrix software...if that's the driver (from floppy). All I did was create the RAID in BIOS and install the driver and complete the OS install. How do I enable Write Back Caching? In the BIOS or where?

    Thanks for any help.

    You need an SSD to get above a 6.0.

    write back caching is in your device manager, locate the drives and go into their properties, click on the policies tab at the top and ensure the two boxes are checked. it will give it a little boost but if you experience crashes then it is more likely to cause some data corruption. (personal experience).

    Don't check the second box unless you have a backup powersupply in case of power failure.
    If you do & don't have a backup PSU, then you can have data loss.
    I'm also using the Intel Matrix Storage Manager but I'm
    not running in RAID although I don't think that matters.

    Actually now that I read it again, it looks like there's data loss
    either way with either box checked if you don't have a backup
    PSU & there is power failure.
    I've always had these settings though & never had any problems & I
    don't have a backup PSU...

    Of course none of this really matters because I have redundant failsafe backup images to restore in minutes for just such a case!

    Yup, absolutely. And even then, I wouldn't check it (I have a UPS as well). I checked it to tested performance difference and found absolutely none, so I leave unchecked. In case my PC ever takes a hardware crash and I have to hard reboot it, I don't want parts of files drifting around in the buffer la-la land if and when a PC hard crashes.

    Gaston's WEI Score


    I am trying to improve my score. I am rather surprised by the score that I received given the system that I am running Windows 7 on; Latittude E6500 with 4 Gigs of memory. Any suggestions?
