Test Setup and Notes
A middle to high range PC was used in the testing of the Stackables:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.75 Ghz
Motherboard: Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI
Memory: 2gb G.Skill DDR2 800 5-5-5-15
HDD: OS - 320gb Seagate Barracuda SATA II
Power: Coolermaster iGreen 500w
Cooling: Scythe Infinity
Sisoft Sandra Lite
40gb 2mb cache Seagate PATA hard drive
160gb 8mb cache Seagate SATA hard drive
2gb Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 flash drive
1gb Wii SD Card
For the hard drives, I ran both HDTach and Sisoft Sandra on each hard drive both internally and externally. Each test was run three times to insure the up-most accuracy. These were also on done on blank unformatted drives with the main OS being a fresh install of Windows XP Pro SP2. The flash drive and SD card were both tested the same way.
Now let's take a look at the SATA external enclosure on the next page...
