Hi all I'm new to this SSD stuff. I did get my first drive an X25M 120gb. Install went easy with win 7 and I set windows drivers to run instead of the Nvidia ones I have an Nforce board. So far the drive has been amazing even coming from dual raptors in raid 0. My question is can I run programs like ccleaner will this effect the drive on a negative way. Thanks for any help you can give me on this.
Thanks for the reply I will give it a shot later. I was reading that using the wipe free space may cause damage not sure if I will use that feature.
there is no reason to use the wipe free space feature if your configuration supports trim.
I believe trim is working I'm running WIN 7 on a non AHCI board. I also run the Intel optimizer once a week not sure if that's over kill.
I have a 750i ftw nforce board but I'm using the Microsoft drivers not the nvidia ones all seems good. Read times in low to mid 200's and the write is very low 100's. Overall I'm very happy with this drive coming from dual raptors in raid 0 I do notice a big difference on app's loading. I don't think I will go back to regular hard drives.
i replaced two raptors in raid-0 with this drive and have been very happy with it, i also have the same drive in my lappy, it gave me about an hour extra run time. i have an f-40 in my net book and all three use c-cleaner and have been running at top speed since the install. enjoy yours and have a good New Year
