This...if it isn't the page file.

Maybe go through the page file settings and set it to 512MB min/max and then restart?

So, I got up this afternoon. It finaly let me delete the pagefile. 20 Gigs free now. We'll see how long this lasts. redface.gif

Broke down and got a 2nd M3p, so this is 2x256Gig in RAID-0 on a Z77. Never used RAID before, but figured I should try it at least once biggrin.gif


My initial 4K writes were low, so had to do the check/uncheck write caching to fix it. MY seq scores are a bit low, but I used a small stripe size, so that probably hurts it a bit.

128 for the stripe size are usually best for SSDs all around.

Also, your speeds may increase by running a thread of prime 95 during the AS SSD bench.

I've seen few articles that suggested 32k was better, but I still haven't seen anything definitive.

Xbitlabs seems to think 32k is better, but it seems that the differences are pretty small no matter what.

My thought was I would rather keep higher 4K scores then seq scores, but who knows if that makes sense smile.gif

And I did have Prime going on 1 thread when I did that benchmark ( I read your how-tos) thumb.gif

Curious, have you tested performance of different stripe sizes to confirm? For what it's worth, Intel uses a 128KB default stripe size because it's what's ideal for HDDs. However, they recommend a 16KB stripe size for SSDs.

True and ideal stripe size might differ by SSD model and even by capacity within a specific model (since different capacities might use different internal NAND/channel configurations).

I think it depends on the SSDs, some may like different stripes. Your controller may also be the reason you aren't getting the full 1GB/s reads.

Otherwise I need 2 of 1 SSD and run some RAID tests lol.

Could be...I don't think I will notice an extra 100Mb/s seq speed, and it's way too much work to try different stripe sizes and test them. biggrin.gif

from my testing of the Plextor M3Pro 256GB in Raid0 the fastest Stripe was 64K as seen here http://www.overclock.net/t/1220904/official-plextor-m3-owners-club/200_100#post_17196162

Thanks AMD_Freak....if I ever reformat/reinstall, I'll move to the new stripe size.
