Test Procedure & Specifications
I will be using two of my WD RED 1TB 2.5-inch hard disk drives to test the SilverStone MS08 enclosure. The testing in itself is pretty straightforward and there that much to say about. I will be testing the enclosure in each available RAID mode and with a wide a variety of applications to gather as many tests results as possible.

I will be creating each possible RAID array with through the hardware settings and give it time to initialize itself before running the actual benchmarks. I will be running a series of benchmarks with the software mentioned above on each array before destroying it and moving on to the next.
The SSD with the operating system is running on a different SATA controller to avoid possible performance impact. Each of the following pages will display a list of screenshots from each test as well as comparison charts for a quick overview.
