OCZ Vertex3, Crucial M4, Crucial C300 - Page 3

post #21 of 50
Only had my M4 64GB for a few days, but so far, it's rocking everything I throw at it and plenty fast. (Benchmarked it at 418Mb/s Read & 110Mb/s Write)

Got it cause Newegg had an error on pricing (Promo code) and $80 w/free shipping was hard to pass up. wink.gif

I'd recommend it, but the Agility3 and Vertex3's are better overall. If I had the choice, I'd get them, but they're pricey!

I have a M4 256gb, though Im not sure I have it setup right.

Its on the 6gb/s lane for sure, but sometimes when Im installing something or opening up multiple items on that drive my computer hangs.

Not indefinitly, but its really annoying.

How do I know TRIM is working on the drive is that in bios?

Sequential reads look blisteringly fast on the above results, why choose anything else?

I'm inclined to go with the M4 unless the new Corsair Force Series 3 is better.

Well, the M4 does 40k random read IOPS and, according to RAM GUY, the Force 3 only does 19k for the 120 GB and 29k for the 240 GB, so the Force 3 is probably a slower boot drive, but far stronger when it comes to write speeds (Force 3 does 85k random write IOPS and the M4 does from 20k to 50k depending on the size) and sequential speeds.

vertex3 best out of those drives, plus with just one drive you have garbage collection and trim anyway, so degrading of the drive is not gonna happen.

Is your friend using Intel RST drivers? If so, tell him to try with m$ ahci driver or to search for the fix (its a known issue in some systems), it has something to do with the LPM system on intel driver (power saving feature I think) and the fix is just disabling LPM through entering registry keys.

Maybe this will help ...

Start here and check on things. It shows ya step by step how to tweak SSD's to get them to work right. Hopefully it will help solve his issue(s).

Never had any stalling or freezing up myself. I had a minor speed (benchmark) problem, but got it fxed with the help of other OCN members. cool.gif
