SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching.
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access.
With SuperPI results being heavily dependant on memory and CPU performance it's no surprise to see the Blitz Extreme pulling ahead of the pack (albeit by a small margin) in the 1m and 16m results. This is more than likely thanks to the Blitz's superior performance in the Sisoft Sandra and Everest memory benchmarks over the previous page.
HD Tach also reported healthy performance figures for a single 7200RPM hard disk setup, and the Blitz sits comfortably in with the rest of the results as expected.
