Have you been running benchmarks or lots of non-compressible files?

The OCZs will throttle down when hit with large loads too fast.

Do you let it sit at login for a couple of hours at least once a week?
This will supposedly let the drive clear all the garbage.

- how come?
- does that 2hr. wait allow Win7's background services, TRIM, etc; time to complete the task..?

Here is my one, I was confused as to why I got only 5.9 but after reading the other post I see I would need a SSD to increase it,

Question though, Why does it say my Direct X version is 10 when my Graphics card is DX11??

it's a "minor" error that MS have yet to address, it should read DX11..

Yes, that is it exactly, this is recommended by manufacturers and many SSD sites.

Hi Kellymac35, I suspect if you overclock your RAM, you'd help that score out.
Check with your Mushkin for info on that, too many variables for me to quote settings. with an i7 you maybe can get a 7.7.
