Hey guys,

Im not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but here goes.
I just finished my build last week, and everything is working great. I am just curious why the WEI would be so low for the disc drive? I am getting 7.9 across the board except for the disk drive, which is a 5.9. I did not get an SSD, I am waiting for the prices to come back down. I have a 500gb Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM. Are these just notoriously that slow?

Again, I know it isn't the best measure of performance, but it is just a little disheartening to see after someone puts so much into a build!

Thanks again!

Pretty much any modern hard drive will get a 5.9, to get more, you'll need a SSD. Hard drives are that slow, when compared to the rest of the PC components Wink
