I have a question. What settings do you use for testing with hd tune. i have noticed that if i increase the block size to say 4MB it gives much higher result than if i use a smaller block size.

That's normal. Users should always use the highest block size option simply because it looks at STR performance from many more viewpoints than just how it reads tiny files that might be smaller than the minimum allocation size.
