Swapping for Vertex 4 128GB.

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hello,
where can I find the swapping settings in W7 x64? I'm desperate to know what is it set to tongue.gif. Also worried about how long will the ssd last.
Thanks

Can't answer your question directly, but I would highly reccomend following the guide HERE cheers.gif along with ensuring hybernate is disabled via an elevated command prompt window (run as administrator) like below biggrin.gif

In the elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h off and press Enter. See source HERE

I would also reccomend prepping your windows 7 install (if you are migrating to an SSD not fresh install) from IDE to AHCI via registry change. Change the key below:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci] Change the "Start" DWORD to 0

reboot and change the controller to AHCI mode in the BIOS

Boot into windows and ensure you downlod the latest chipset/controller drivers from your chipset manufacturer and install...you're good to go biggrin.gif Source HERE

I just did all of this due to migrating from an old HDD. Used an imaging software and it worked flawlessly! I couldn't be more happy with the Vertex 4 drive I got. I also finally used 6Gb of my 12Gb of RAM by turning it into a Ramdisk... SSD in combination with a ramdisk?? Holy.... crap.... talke about fast. The Ramdisk puts my SSD to shame lol by a loooong shot

Thanks, will do it when I get home smile.gif SSD is on Read 280mb/s and Write 210mb/s but it's set on IDE mode because I have to do something with 3rd HDD. Will tune it up later!
But I'm already very happy with it, everything is instant and boot/shut down is 15 sec/5sec from my old seagate's 5min 30sec/50sec!

I take it you are running it on a sata 3 port? Those are similar speeds to my vertex 4 on a sata 3 port

Vertex 4 is garbage imo.

You'll see a performance drop after your drive is over 50% full. Check out this thread here.

You again rolleyes.gif

You seem to have some sort of personal vendetta against the Vertex 4. All SSD's experience a performance drop once they get past a certain threshold. Which you know....but continue to pick on the V4.

Really? Its just me huh?

Read this.

And this (take note of the user comments).

There is no other SSD that I know of with anything close to these type of issues.
