post #1261 of 5384
Installed my M4 earlier, and using this guide, it was a piece of cake!

Cheers Sean for a great guide thumb.gif

I may only be using SATA 2, but so far it's performing incredibly biggrin.gif

Cheers.

Laptops give lower scores for 4K, if you disable all hardware power options (C1E, Speedstep, etc.) and change the windows power options to high performance then you should get better results. If you still don't it is either the laptop still or if you can test it in your rig.
Looks good, and the HDD is good with 4K.

Thanks

Thanks, I already did all of that except disabling C1E and Speedstep since the BIOS of my laptop doesn't have that option. I guess it's in the laptop, yes, but 4k-64kthrd is the most important score anyway, right? I'll be testing another M4 in my rig if I get to buy another one for a decent price and compare.

What do you mean indexing step? I thought it is better not to turn it off for MS Outlook? Lol.

Although my laptop has the Intel 6 series chipset, I just asked them if it's also effective with this chipset. I have the HM65 chipset in my laptop. Thanks for the links though smile.gif

Oh ok, lol.

When the computer is idle, do you really need to log it off for GC to work properly? Or is GC not effective now?

I honestly don't know for sure whether or not you "need" to log off, but I have read that over at a OCZ's and Crucial's forums.

Also, I currently am still learning about GC, TRIM, and Wear leveling. I will hopefully be able to answer you with near full knowledge soon. smile.gif
