Try disable the drives in device manager, maybe a windows script to toggle them on and off so you only turn them on when you need them.

I actually need those drives as they are my storage drive but is this an expected result?

I also have another question, my drives are labelled accordingly to its partition, windows explorer sees them as "Local Drives" while Disk Management actually sees the correct names, anyway to correct this ?

Is it okay for me to run chkdsk??
Intel verification? 0.o I never heard of such a thing lol.

Nah, that is just how it is, unless someone else has a "fix."

Sean,

I know there IS a firmware update, however can I apply it before I install Windows 7 on the drive? My Samsung 830 128GB SSD came with a USB adapter - could I use that to apply the firmware then install the drive in the new system and install windows?

There is a PDF with instructions where you download the firmware...

Hi i followed most of this when i installed win7 on my intel 128gb ssd

some observations i found,
lets say i have plenty of pictures on a ms word document, then i type a sentence on any part of the document, theres a 3 sec delay before the letters come out or display on the document,
the document file is on another hdd but the MSword is installed in ssd along with the OS

youtube videos sometimes are very choppy (might be flash related but who knows)

are these side effects related to the settings after installation?
