It was a bit fiddly getting the system to recognize the USB stick for boot.
Otherwise, READSPEED ran with no problems. The HGST drives were read in a matter of seconds.
Spinrite 6.0 took over 50 hours to read and verify the same disks (level 4) on a different MB.
I never could get Spinrite properly to run on this system. DOS and Spinrite would load from a CD, but would never discover any of the drives.
I Can't wait for 6.1

MB has 32GB of ECC memory

Hi, thanks for posting your results! Interesting to have the CPU and mainboard info too! :)

Also interesting to see several identical drives' results together!

Those figures of 546 MB/s are the fastest I think I've seen!

I'm assuming that a lot of modern SSDs are maxxing out the SATA III bus, so that the top speeds that we're seeing are the limits of the SATA link. My Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H motherboard (with i7 4770S) caps out at 543.0 MB/s with my Samsung 860 Pro 512GB SSD, at least that's what I assume is happening.

Your system seems to have a slight edge! :)

It sounds like your system is AHCI. In which case, SpinRite 6.0 would not see any drives. ReadSpeed has no problem with AHCI, nor will SpinRite 6.1.
