[Official] Crucial SSD Owners Club - Page 40

post #391 of 1783
Hey guys. I've got an incoming Crucial M4 512GB that I'm going to use as my boot and primary drive. If all goes well, I will get rid of my HDD completely. Since my PC is a gaming machine only, and since my games are all on Steam/Origin, I'm just planning on installing/uninstalling my games as need be, so I think the SSD will be all I need.

My question is this, other than upgrading the firmware to 0009, is there anything else I need to do/setup/configure before I install Win7 to the SSD?

the 0009 firmware might already be on the drive (was on my 2 120gb's). A 512gb is very nice, but why not get a 64 or 128 as boot and then a large ssd for data ?

Other than that, follow the install guide in the top of this topic and your ready smile.gif

Here is the first AS-SSD test for my Crucial M4 128GB in my Sager NP8130 laptop:

as-ssd-benchM4-CT128M4SSD2122520117-45-27PM.png

I'm comparing the results in the AS-SSD benchmark thread but why is my "4K" speeds lower than normal? For other tests (seq, 4k-64Thrd, Acc.time) they seem to be on par with others.
