Leave it alone. Seriously.

The only thing I would suggest is possible disabling the Hiberfile, to free up some space. Especially if you do not use hibernate, its just wasted space.
Beyond that, leave it be and enjoy a faster PC.

Theres tons of tweaks you can do to reduce writes etc. but from my experience it actually makes either no difference, or slows things down a bit.

i'll second the disabling of hibernation. extra room and whats the point when your machine should boot fast enough where sleep/hibernation is kinda pointless in my opinion.
also i have done no tweaks per-say to the ssd and has been running perfectly ever since i got it (at that its been in two laptops now)

Possible tips.
For me, a thread titled "Help Please" is less likely to get my interest than one with a hint in the title "Will not boot" etc. As a virus magnet I have spent many days without my PC. Instead of binning my old PC on getting a better one I hung onto it. It allows me to at least ask questions to...
