Never use "clean all" on SSDs. Use "clean." And what is "ssderase"? Did you mean secure erase? If so all you need to do is a quick format if you are just reinstalling.

 

Info on formatting and Secure erase: http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread#user_TheDosandtheDonts

 

clean all shouldn't be run because it writes 0's to the drive, that will essentially be like writing data to the whole drive's capacity. Clean is similar to a quick format, it wipes the partition table and makes a new one. Secure erase flashes all the NAND and leaves it in a new like state. But, it uses up a half a P/E cycle. And it doesn't need to be performed for a simple reinstall.

Add me to the club.

Bought some months ago, now it looks like Crucial MX100 is not a bad deal either though.

Test numbers looking good?

Sean: so when reinstalling with a SSD, I guess all I need to do is bootup to the OS installation and select clean/erase/format? And it will remove the current table, then create new one and install?
The old days of doing things manually is long gone right? No need to run anything else to get rid of the old bits of OS and the installation can for quite some time do the partitioning and remove the old one if desired.

I've put this clean install through way too many BSODs OCing and want to make a fresh install before putting other things on it.

I think I read some of your guides but I never found a need to disable defrag, where can I even do that and why would one do it with Win8.1? I think they might already be treating the SSD as SSD unlike lets say WinXP? Or Win7? No need to disable defrag?
