Glad to see you are enjoying it. I DO love mine. After you get used to it. Install windows on your old drive and try it. If you are like me, you'll say "never again".

Hi Hopalong,

Don't run too many benchmarks on the drive. The OCZ site (yes, I went for more speed ) says that you shouldn't run a heavy HD test but once a week, and never any benchmark more than once per log in session.

This is true for all SSDs but more so for SandForce controllers. The SF controller will throttle down if too many writes are done in a short time period.

Another reminder, to those that aren't aware of this, SF controllers need the system to sit at the login window for 1-2 hours at least twice a month. Some say once a week.
Quote:
It has now been confirmed the controller does actively rotate static data as part of Duraclass. This means idle periods are essential to allow the drives wear levelling to work as it should.


Intel SSDs need to run the toolbox > Intel SSD Management Tools > Intel SSD Optimizer, once a week. Best to set up the scheduler.

Well I didn't run any 3rd party SSD benchmarks. Just the Cmd and WEI.

Ran Heaven benchmark. GPU OC'ed it was the same result.

GPU stock clock went up only 0.4 FPS....but there was no lag.
HDD minimum framerate would drop to 8 FPS on start up and sometimes on changing from test scene to test scene.
Now the lowest was 25 FPS and during the run it didn't drop below 38 FPS. No flickering or artifacts without the OC now.

With no OC the HDD was creating a lag. The SSD can keep up with the GPU which is a Nvidia 460 so that is excellent.

No GPU OC on Snips below.

Hi Mike, It looks like I came again too late to the party. Between the time difference here in Europe and all my appointments I have a hard time keeping up with you guys.

But it looks like you are having fun with your new toy. Aren't they great those SSDs.

That is okay. The time difference I understand.
A friend of mine is in the Phillipines. About 12 hours time difference.
I'm having coffee and breakfast or he is when we get to talk.

Thanks again everyone that assisted.

Good to see you got it sorted mate.


Believe me when I say, do not do very many wipes to it.

Makes sense to me.
It is working fine as is so I will leave well enough alone.
I have a Repair/Recovery Disk-SP1 made so I can run recovery options from it instead of the 100MB partition.
So for now I'll just use it as is and do a clean install when the need arises in the future.

If I was having problems then I would go ahead with a wipe and clean install now.

Thanks
Mike

Once you start getting used to it, you kind of take for granted how much quicker a SSD really is.

Ive already decided I will never install Windows on a mechanical HD on my machine.


I tried this a while back.
And the HD just seemed so sluggish in everything.
And boot time just seemed so long.
Once at desktop, it was still working on loading things. I guess I got so used to when I see my desktop, Im good to go.

Its a huge difference once you get used them for sure.

Wishmaster, when I tried that I thought to myself, I used to use this and like it. I really can't believe that.
