Test System

 

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 @ 3GHz (9x333MHz)

 

Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1186 Geil (Supplied by Geil)

 

Motherboard: GIGABYTE X38-DQ6 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 8800GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)

 

Cooling: Stock Intel Cooler

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

Our test system remains unchanged from our Western Digital Scorpio test setup, allowing us to run the same tests on the new WD HDD that we did on the Scorpio and our Seagate HDD. We used the GIGABYTE P35 motherboard as its ICH9 controller is identical to the X38's. 2GB of RAM keeps the system running nice and smooth without trashing the hard disk too much, yet still allows it to go to the drive for read and write access with the games and applications.
