Calm down.

Don't trust the Windows Experience Index at all. It's all BS.

Probably because it's smaller. Not saying the size has anything to do with it, but i'd imagine a 150GB vs 36GB would make a difference in te primary HDD score.

Size doesn't make a difference (Harddrive wise that is

I get a 5.7 with a new 7200RPM 16MB cache drive. You should run HD tach

i think the final score should be an average of all of them, and not just the lowest one.
