It's only giving me a 6.0 for HDD performance with Windows 7, and I've got a 500GB single platter, the fastest 7200rpm drive on the market, which has a faster read than the RaptorX, and comparable to the VelociRaptor. How is it possible to get a 6.0 on "Disk data transfer rate" with the fastest data transfer drive on the market?

I'm also surprised I'm only getting a 7.6 for CPU @ 4.2GHz, and a 6.6 for gaming graphics. I woudkl think that stuff would be maxed out on this system.

You want your system to get the highest scores possible on a OS that is still in beta ? The full version wont be released till next year and by then there will be even more powerfull hardware out.

Aren't the 640GB AAKS Western Digital the fastest? 100MB/sec sustained throughput, dual 320GB platters. I have 3 of them ;)

What HD are you talking about with single 500GB platter faster than a Raptor?

I have the new black edition of that drive and it is pretty crazy fast. Not sure what one he is talking about either.

The 500GB 7200.12 Beracuda actually has a FASTER sustained read than both the RaptorX and VelociRaptor. As far as I know it's got both the fastest average and fastest max read on the market.

Seagate 7200.12 = 108MB/s average read.

RaptorX 10,000 = 72MB/s average read

They have already changed the mark. In Win7 beta 7000 I got like 3.2 for the HDD, but now in 7057 I'm getting 5.3. Same HDD just new build. It's an older Seagate so not that fast.
