    I just got 122MB write and 129MB read speeds on a stock AAO. How is this possible? has this happened to others? Something wrong with ATTO benchmark? How do i add pictures?

    Try benchmarking with hdtune. The read and write speed shouldn't be that high. The HDD's speed tops at 85MB/s ish

    False alarm. hdtune gave more realistic results. I dunno what is up with ATTO but its obviously not as reliable; now reporting 85 write 125 read

    ATTO tends to get confused by cacheing. HD Tune is much better in this respect.

    In ATTO, try using something much larger than 4MB for the "Total Length" value. 64MB or 256MB would be better.

    With a size of 4MB most or all of the data will be in the HD's on-board 8MB cache rather than read from or written to the physical disk.
