    Sure you can get higher, I think that's the easy answer.

    Will a ssd do it? More than likely.

    I've notified the proper NZ authorities. Your days as an outlaw are numbered, dbz.

    Even my 64GB C300 scores 7.9

    Try the Crucial M4's or Mushkin Chronos drives if you don't want to pay a lot.

    I am pretty sure that no matter how fast your mechanical drive is, the highest WEI will allow it to be scored is 5.9. You must use SSD to score higher.

    Ok. It just wasn't clear from your post or the replies that anyone understood the 5.9 was the max for a mechanical. If I missed that somewhere then I apologize.
