Nope, I disabled msseces.exe, MsMpEng.exe, and my speeds take off. BTW, MsMpEng.exe will reload one or two times after ending it.

Edit: Well it's not those. I rebooted, disabled them and still see a slowdown. I don't want to keep benching, but I wish I knew what it was.

Edit 2: Memeo Dashboard and Seagate Dashboard service for my 1TB External seem to be the culprit. I can't believe they can slow an SSD that much.

hibernation file was the first thing i disabled. That freed up about 6GB on my SSD.

I went through and checked all my settings running through the guide again and i guess when I was shrinking the PageFile, when i changed it to 1024-1024 I forgot to click on "set" and just clicked ok:rolleyes: I Went through again, and shrunk it down. This time I made sure to click on "set". it told me i needed to reboot for changed to take effect. I rebooted and i went from 37.9GB free to 44.8GB free. thumb.gif

That means I am using 14.7GB of the SSD for windows, core drivers(GPU,audio, LAN, USB, NB and AMD AHCI), Kaspersky Internet Security, and Google chrome(because fr whatever reason it does not allow you to change the installation folder)

Currently working on installing my games and programs to the HDD I have mounted in an NTFS folder. We'll see if I get the SSD read speeds with this method. And already move all of my user folder to my 1TB Samsung.


I do have another question though. I going through and saw some videos of boot times with the M4. Even though benchmarks show the SSD is running full blast I feel like I'm not getting the performance I anticipated. Looking at some other boot-up videos, the SSD is so fast the windows logo can't even finish loading. And with me the logo loads and stays up for a few seconds. To be honest, boot times only seem 1-3 seconds faster than my old HDD. any ideas on that?

nope, could be a system hang?

Run this 2-3 times and tell me the average: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/720-restart-time.html
(I get 30-35 seconds)


And do the same for this: http://www.greatis.com/bootracer/
(I get 10-12 seconds)

Times I got for the first one were: 45-43-45-44

Times for the second one were: 15-17-17-16

Also, in the second one(boot racer) when I click on the system information tab, for some reason it tells me my boot drive is my 500GB Caviar black.....could that be becasue its plugged into the first SATA port on my motherboard? Or whats up with that?

yea that is a little slow. do you ave any usb devices plugged in?

Also, make sure the SSD is the only boot option in the bios and disable an others.

Also, make sure the SSD is the only boot option in the bios and disable an others.

USB devices plugged in are: My wireless keyboard and mouse, Wireless internet adapter and printer.

As for boot settings in BIOS: I have my Hard disk Order set at: M4, WD Caviar black, Samsung SpinPoint. And my boot priority is set: Asus DVD burner, Crucial M4, Third option disabled. Should I set the M4 as primary boot device and disable the DVD burner completely?

EDIT:

In msconfig I have everything unchecked under the (non Microsoft) services tab and startup tab except for Kaspersky Internet Security and Nvidia graphics drivers.
