Great guide thumb.gif

I actually have a Sandforce controller based SSD, the OCZ Agility 3 and I am so far very pleased with it, even though its on Sata 1 for the moment its great. Luckily no BSOD issues for me so far but I can attribute that to having the latest firmware also. One thing that is a little annoying is that I have the OS on my SSD and OCZ state not to update the firmware if you have the OS running on it, then again I could update from windows installed on my HDD .Not sure if it will wipe the SSD contents however.

Attribute it to luck rather than 2.15 firmware. Too many people still having bsod even with 2.15 for my taste.

The OCZ firmware update is not destructive. But it needs to be attached as a slave drive for the update. Easiest way to do it is with a usb stick actually.

Thanks buddy. Still needs some work, schools been keeping me from it lol. smile.gif

Glad you're not having issues. I hate how the SandForce drives up date too. it would be so much easier if they made a .iso updater like Crucial. I don't think you will lose any info though if there is a new update. I've updated a few SandForce drives with the OS on them from the OS without data loss. But always have a back up just in case.

I have a question if I may,

I have my ssd (crucial c300) installed and connected to a marvel port, sata 3. I just read that they don't support trim.
Will there be a difference in speed when i put them on the sata 2 port, any BIG loss in performance? (i don't have any regular sata 3 ports)

Small other question: what are the Jmicron ports for?

Up to you, that is pretty cheap. But I can't recommend it personally.

Install it on the native sata 2 port and disable the marvell. I always recommend native over non native. See if there is a difference.

Jimicron is the esata controller.
