    That tells us about as much as if you had taken your computer, thrown it out a window, and then tried to benchmark it using a dead monkey......

    Seriously. xbench means nothing!.

    Actually it may be relevant if the monkey was killed by the falling computer.

    Wow, well, guess what. I specificly said that I dont know alot of programs to do disk benchmarking under OS X. And I said that im open to trying out new programs if you tell me what they are.
    But obviously you missed that, therefor, your post is about as useful as if we had taken your computer, thrown it out a window, and then tried to have a dead monkey come up with a useful post.

    Thanks.

    I've got one too, it's not noisy at all. You can see benchmarks at BareFeats.

    Honestly. Its like almost silent. So far, noise has been a total non-issue for me.

    SiSoft Sandra or HD Tach are good ones...

    Unfortunately, I believe both are Windows only--so I'm hoping you got Bootcamp et al setup.

    Im in the process of setting it up.
    Actualy, that reminds me. Does anyone have a mirror or plain text instructions of that SATA Fix? The original page seems to be down due to bandwith issues.

    I put a Raptor drive in my G5 2.7, thing is incredible.

    As great as the MacPro is, one of the biggest speed bottlenecks is hard drive access. It affects booting, moving files, launching programs, and virtual memory.

    Im curious as to how the new Seagate perpendicular recording drives compare to the Raptor, as they have higher data rates (I think)

    In anticipation of this, I saved the webpage to my hd.... Just unzip it and open it up, I had to put it in a zip file because it won't let me upload it otherwise.

    I love the Seagate Perpendicular Recording Drives. I think they are the most stable and best drives overall on the market. That's why i'm buying 2 320GB ones for my Mac Pro.
