No, it will run fine without IRST.You'll get good speeds out of it. Just make sure your sata controller in bios is set to AHCI before you install. As far as opinions on your SSD, I can't give one because I've never owned one. Although, those that I know of who have them were very pleased with them.

I heard it suggested to turn off indexing on an SSD. I did that on mine, along with disabling hibernation, turning off system restore, etc.

I have left indexing on, and turned if off and could not notice any difference. I think I just left it off. I disabled hibernation as I have a desktop, but I left system restore on and just lowered how much space it used.

I think it all comes down to what do "you" consider as "excessive writes". Sometimes I wonder if I took it too things too far, but my system is extremely fast and I'm not missing any of the features I turned off. so for now I'm going to leave things the way they are.

As long as you aren't losing out on any functionality you need, it's all good! One good thing is 99% of SSD's now don't suffer from the write failures of first and second gen SSD's. They are exponentially more durable and reliable now than they were just a few years ago.

I suggest you look at tweaking 7 with the SSD tutorial, shuffling as much of your temporary files OFF the SSD as you can and all that fun stuff.

Here is the tutorial:

Thanks a lot for the reply, just a question, will SSD encounter BSOD frequently?

And another question, will non-system storage (let it be my HDD), shows up BSOD? Kinda silly question but it would be much appreciated if it is answered.

Are these "in general" questions, or are you actually encountering blue screens? SSD's can cause blue screens if they are defective.......just like almost any piece of hardware.

Faladu, an awful lot has changed about SSDs since that tutorial was written. We are 2 or 3 generations of SSDs since that. SSds are not near as fragile as many think. I suggest everyone read the tests done by xtremesystems. They tried to kill the SSDs by writing constantly to them You will be surprised at how much it took. And we are another generation removed from that.

leonnkeong, I have 7 SSDs, and none of mine have ever caused a bsod, if that's what you are asking. An ssd will BSOD like any other hard drive if the computer encounters a failure of some component. I am really not sure what you are asking, but an SSD will operate much like any other hard drive and can be used in place of any other hard drive.

That's very true! The guy that tortured those SSD's found that most would hold up WELL beyond what they are rated for. I know the Samsung 830 handled almost 7 PetaBytes worth of writes before it gave it up.
