Windows 7: Is my SSD properly aligned?

Is my SSD properly aligned?

Hi, everyone at Sevenforums, I am very confused as to whether my ssd is properly aligned. I keep reading different articles with different information on how to check the alignment of an ssd. For example, Sevenforums says the KB offset has to be divisible by 4, whereas lifehacker.com says it has to be divisible by 4096. According to the tutorial on here, they are correctly aligned. But according to lifehacker.com, they are not. Would someone who is experienced with ssd alignment please verify if my ssd is properly/improperly aligned. Thank you so much. I would really appreciate it. Here is a screenshot.

and then AS SSD says my alignment is OK. The second green OK the the top left corner indicates the alignment.

If AS SSD says it is aligned, it is. I could never make sense of that divide by four business and never heard of divide by 4096.

Your 1st partition is divisable by 4, that`s all that matters
