How important is 4K alignment?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
vs. 1K?

Just did a new Win 7 install and forgot to set up 4K alignment and wondering if I should reinstall it again.

Links to benchmarks or good articles would be appreciated.

It should be 4k aligned already.

If as ssd says it is ok then it is fine: http://www.overclock.net/t/1226963/how-to-properly-re-align-your-ssd-hdd-partitions

Yea, about that, apparently someone confused me on the whole 4k thing I need to update it. There should be no difference b/w 1MB offset and 4MB offset.
