Anyhow good to see that things are going well and the WEI mate I think is the best you are going to get the perfect score I think is nigh impossible.

Mine is the same by the by on my Ivy Bridge build running a Samsung EVO.

I know a friend told me recently that we can harass the heck out of the drive performance and he is right really I do use my Samsung Magician software to optimise it and get the latest firmware but in it's out of the box form it ran like stink!!LOL!! As for PNY I couldn't find any software on their site for doing what the Samsung software does.

Still happy and fast computing:)
FYI, whs turned me onto this a few years back... Paragon Migrate OS to SSD. Does resizing, aligning, and allows you to choose which folders get moved. Simple, quick, and easy to use. Cost is also 20 bucks.

If the partition was properly aligned before the image was made, it should still be properly aligned after the restoration, but you can check alignment with a benchmark tool or with Diskpart.

You might want to run a benchmark anyway. Confirm defrag is turned off for the SSD.
