I am quite fed up from my semi new HDD working quite slow. I have bought it early 2011 for around £45 inc everything. THe make is Hitachy HDS721010CLA332 7.2k RPM 32Mb Cache During HD TUNE PRO Benchmark I get 8.6MB/s read on maximum and 0.7MB/s on minimum. That said this HDD is my main boot disk. When I test my Samsung F3 (backup drive, i know i did it the wrong way around... should of been my main..) I get around 141.5MB/s read and 107.9MB/s minimum which is hell of a lot faster! Any thoughts? I can't test the write speed with HD TUNE PRO since it requires clean partition or something ... Could this be due to my FSB being 230 (so HT is 2300) from default 200? I doubt it though.
