    Thanks for the update. If you ever have time to do something custom let me know. There are a few ideas I have about automation and a series of tests that your software can run but it takes a lot of time to do manually.

    Will do!
    Just PM me and I'll give you my e-mail address, automation has been on my list for a long time and your thoughts are very welcome.

    Anvil, was using Endurance test on a HD, and it stopped with a floating point div by 0 error...
    This is with win 8.1 update 1
    I don't see error logs anyplace... it was just a dialog.

    @ Anvil:
    Thanks for your "Storage Utilities", which meanwhile is my favorite benchmark and TRIM trigger tool!

    @ B Gates:
    Your published RAID0 benchmark results are really impressing, but not everyone has 6 SSDs and a board with 6 Intel SATA3 ports.
    By the way:
    This is what I got with my Z77 system running just a single SSD in AHCI mode:
    MB: ASUS P8Z77-V
    CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
    DRV: 512 GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD in RAPID mode
    RAM: 4x4 GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1600

    I see you have got a pair of 256GB 840 Pros in RAID 0, give us a bench with those. The score to beat is 11,195 for a 2 drive RAID array. I used to like 840 Pros but after seeing how they perform in a steady state, its obvious they are best for light duty usage.

    All my benchmark tests were done to find out the best SSD configuration and the fastest SATA mode for me and my daily work with my Z77 system running Win8.1 x64. It has never been my intention trying to beat any scores published by other users.
    That is why I have done all my tests on the active system drive C: with a normally booted OS running the usually activated Services incl. the MS Defender in the background.

    By the way: I have published all my recent benchmark test results within the start post of >this< thread.

    Here are the best results I got with my 2x256 GB Samsung 840 PRO SSDs running as RAID0:

    @Fernando, I agree with you about testing with OS Volume. All my reviews feature most of the testing with the test subjects as the OS Volume 75% full running win 8.1. IE: http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/63...ort/index.html

    Look at your 4K READ scores and compare them with my RAPID mode result!
    For the daily work the 4K READ and WRITE speeds are the most important ones.

    Anvil,

    I'm getting weird display on endurance testing:



    I don't get any of the labels for each of the fields, so instead of it saying Free Space in the orange field, it is simply repeating the free space value for the label (in this case 65.69)

    If anyone knows how to fix this, I'm all ears!

    I've been noticing that with some of the NVMe drives that are coming out that ASU doesn't seem to be hitting the same kinds of throughput or random IOps numbers that have been quoted. Is there any desire to update ASU to better utilize the NVMe drives either throw a queue depth change or a thread change?
