Thanks for all of your answers.

Ok - so i cant just buy a SSD - format, and install Windows 7 on it. I need to do a lot of technical stuff?

Is there a guide somewhere for NON technical people?

I have found and installed "Marvell9128_V1001034_XpVistaWin7" from ASUS site, but that driver only improve my score by 10 points in AS SSD benchmark.

Here is a little guide: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

But if you install Windows from an installation DVD, there is not too much to do. Alignment, Defrag, etc., is properly set by the installer. You just might want to get rid of the hiberfile.

Thanks. Yes I have installed win7 from disk on my new SSD. And now I have deleted the hiberfile.

In my BIOS its set to EDI - but If I change it to something else, the boot of the PC is restarting all the time. Back to EDI and all works fine again

Looks good. I would leave it like that. Any further 'tuning' is liable to mess it up or have little effect in real life.

Here's mine had problems running Rapid mode Samsung Magician was claiming my Haswell i7-4770k was too slow the CPU needs to run at 1GHz or faster.

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista
Mine didn't want to run in ACHI it ran the best in Dell's OEM HDD setup. I read Intel's controllers work and adjust with the SSD somehow so I left it alone and as you can see in my previous post of the benchmarks it's doing great in non ACHI mode.
