Also there are other tests: Sign in Already have an account? Any more then about 12 Raptors provides the same performance. This way the surface test functions can test the complete array, verifying both the drives and the actual storage subsystem including cables, connections, enclosure, controller integrity – and the hardware self tests can be used to test drives individually.

The benchmarks I posted are the max of the card or close to aareca with the correct config. Works with Windows Vista. I have a number of hard drives connected to the RAID controller: Mobile by Shara Tibken Dec 6, Register a new account.

Any more then about 12 Raptors provides the same performance. That may work better in this case, if the controller will have no further firmware and aareca updates.
The problem is the firmware and driver may be too old for the new detection method used in the latest version of Hard Disk Sentinel 5.

He used Hard Disk Sentinel pre-release test version before 4. Style designed by Artodia. Posted December 18, I installed HDSentinel Pro v5. Originally different method used for Areca controllers.

Sign in with Google. Assuming that the controller works correctly, the commands reach the hard disk, these can be used in all cases to test the drives, even if the operating system is not able to address the complete array correctly.
Also in some situations even the detection or special functions like using the self tests caused that the controller did not respond to the software, so Hard Disk Sentinel seemed stuck waiting forever. Sign up for a new account aeca our community.

It and generally older versions available if you scroll down the Downloads page http: Because of these, the detection replaced to work better with newer controllers, their newer firmware and drivers. It was working in most cases, but there were some limitations and minor compatibility issues with some controllers, plus it was not able to detect all drives for example SAS drives when applicable and newer controllers.
What volume stripe size are you using in the RAID? Because of this, after 4. Killer numbers in these results But looks like both your setups are giving very similar results in STR and in access time!
I’m assuming that HDSentinel operates only on the physical drives themselves ie not the volumes that the RAID controller presentsis that correct? Generally the controller should be better.
But looks like both your setups are giving very similar results in STR and in arexa time!
