What would you do with an extra Intel X25-V 40GB?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a 128GB Corsair M4 and will be transfering my OS/Program files to it from my Intel X25-V using Paragon Migrate.

I'm looking at eBay to sell the X25-V but there are all inflated prices so I'm not sure its worth.

Would you keep it for its additional 40gb storage? There's no way I can fill up 128gb with program files. I was going to use the X25-V for Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 but I could probably get better performance from the M4 anyways (I don't need much HDD space for games)

What would you do with an extra Intel X25-V ? Is there some way I can use it to speed up my other hard drives? Not really sure of these things.

Thanks

I have 4 of my original 80Gig Intel X-25's and they are sitting atop my computer desk gathering dust. I upgraded both mine and my brothers computers to Intel 520's recently which we both love. I really have no use for them now.

OT: Both Apple laptops died heat death a year ago...(the ones with the Nvidia graphics btw mad.gif) right after Apple stopped replacing the defective mainboard for free.

I'll likely take the advice above and try to offload them to someone who needs em. Maybe i'll build someone a 240Gig Raid zero c: drive.

Too bad I cannot mix within my system, and my Sata 3 ports never worked for Raid 0. A problem that was just flat out never fixed on my Mobo by ASUS. The next revision of the board yes. Mine, no. Time for an upgrade but I hate to do all the dropping and relicensing of all the software etc...

mSATA is a different form factor.

However, you can use the SSD with Smart Response Technology..... SSD caching.

I don't think thats available for my Gigabyte. I think thats ASUS..

Would there be a difference in performance between the M4 and X25-V for games?

No it has nothing to do with the company, it is the chipset the board has. rolleyes.gif

Z77 supports SSD caching.

The manual says the SSD has to have the OS installed to it. I'm using the Crucial M4 for OS and programs. I guess I can't use the extra Intel 25-V for caching or am I missing something?

You have other drives in the system correct?

All you need to do is this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1227655/how-to-set-up-intel-smart-response-technology-ssd-caching

Set the 40GB SSD to cache to one of the HDDs in your system.

If you have the SATA mode set to AHCI right now just do this to change to RAID: http://www.overclock.net/t/1227636/how-to-change-sata-modes-after-windows-7-installation
