Just installed my Intel X25 V 40GB (only one).

New firmware, Intel driver, fresh install Win7.

Hi Dave76,

Seems to be about on par with the one I have.
But 4k seems slightly low for some reason. Altough probably nothing to worry about, Im wondering if perhaps its due to the Intel Driver.


Have you tried the MS standard drivers?

I only ask, because with mine, I get a little better performance overall with them, oddly. Maybe just my set up likes the generic ones better, I don't know.

I know others claim better performance w/the Intel ones, but it wasnt the case for me.

With the Intell Drivers, mine drops in Seq. read (around 165ish)& 4k-64thrd drops as well round 126ish, but the 4K read goes up by about .5 the over all score is a bit lower as well. All else about the same.

Heres how mine looks after a couple months of use:

Have not tried the standard MS drivers, most of the reports I have seen say they are getting a little better results from the Intel driver.

I'll try it for comparison, hopefully this week.

Did you notice any affect on your CPU after installing the SSD?

Mine is OC'ed to 3.36 GHz, stepping on, (when running on the HD) usually running at idle 1.44 GHZ going up to 3.36 GHz at the most.
Now with the SSD, at Idle still getting ~1% CPU Usage but, the frequency is between 3.6 to 3.8 GHz. Seems a little odd.

Fixed a couple of driver issues and a printer spooling problem from the old printer driver, thought that might be the cause, but still the same CPU frequency.

CPU wise I didnt notice anything different, No.

I take it you are in AHCI mode?

Yes, AHCI mode.

Guess I'll tweak a little bit and see if I can get the frequency back down to 3.36 GHz again.

Might by worth trying to reset Bios to Optimized Default and reset all the settings again.

Maybe somethings going on there.

Not sure why you be getting a higher core speed all of the sudden ..

Just set the frequency turbo boost to disabled, it allows the frequency to go higher if required.

Guess the SSD required a faster CPU.

It's at 3.2 GHz and steady. See how that goes.

Core 0: 3.2 GHz
Core 1-3: 1.4 GHz

well i don't think i can get sn SSD now because i have the specs listed below and it seems that the intel SSD's do not work well in nvidia chipsets. and does not support trim function. . nvidia 720d

It is true that performance is less on nvidia motherboards. But it's STILL far greater than a normal HD. I'm using a gen 1 X-25 on my 720 and it's still a screamer even though the miltithreaded performance is not as good as an intel board and I never had or can have TRIM and it STILL screams so go ahead

hmm im not sure if i want to take the risk, but if i dont install the nvidia chipset drivers, will it be ok? and i read somewhere you can just use the MS ones and TRIM will still work?
Also i dont think i have any chipset driver anyway?
