My System Specs

Default

I'm not a n00b. I know there was nothing wrong w/ the system. If I would to run CrystalDiskMark I could be maxing out ICH10R's throughput. 250MB/s @ 20,000 IOPS is HUGE. Besides 4 X25-E's I don't think it is really possible to get higher than that on ICH10R. That was the point of this. Benches show more of a gain than there actually is with real world tasks. The only places it should a benefit were w/ boot up and copy/pasting files as you can see. Games had zero increase and the 'gains' in Photoshop was pathetic.

And write caching on ICH*R isn't all that helpful. Once again it really only helps with benches.

Forgot to add that the iometer results were from the OCZ fulltest.icf config. W/ a 'Number Of Outstanding I/Os' @ 64.
