SSD X-25-M 80GB

Hello, do i have trim properly working?

 

I installed this one today, it already come with latest firmware, so what i done:

1. Set Bios to AHCI

 

2. Clean Windows 7 install

Once i got in desktop, i saw that it was listed under "Safely hardware remove", why?

I tryed installing latest chipset inf, but it was still showing there.

Then i download intel rapid storage technology and finally it is not there anymore.

What worries me, if by having this installed, will trim work? i read that it will not for raid setups, but with only one SSD, what?

My Motherboard is P5W DH Deluxe

The IRST driver does not support RAID but is fine for non-RAID usage with Windows 7 and should run TRIM automatically.

Ok, about "safety hardware remove", what does irst drivers do, that it is no longer shown there?

I have the IRST driver and don't see the "safety hardware remove" and that's fine, not a problem for me. I connected a USB Flash Drive yesterday and removed without any problems. My advice is don't worry about it.

Not bad, but I guess could be better. This could depend on hardware so I may get better scores than you and someone else may get better scores than me. I have 3 SSD's, 80GB (1) 160GB (2).

I have noticed that SSD benchmarks against my C: drive are always the worst. I have a small empty partition that always gives the best. Since they are both on the same SSD the explaination must be that more than just SSD performance is being measured by the benchmarks. All hardware from the I/O controller to the SSD is the same it must be NTFS overhead.

Another thing worth mentioning is benchmark results do vary from time to time with same SSD.

ambizytl, I have NEVER seen the same benchmark numbers from two consecutive runs, even in Safe Mode. Of course, Safe Mode is the best trick for producing eyepopping benchmark numbers.
