Best way to re-install Windows on my Crucial M4? - Page 3

I don't even know if it was really worth doing it in the and perhaps there would be no difference if I just installed Windows over the old one. Oh well, it's done now and my new PC is blisteringly quick with the i5,SSD and 16Gb memory!

I may post a crystaldisk screenshot of my speeds and you can perhaps tell me if I've set it up right.
Post AS SSD, NOT crystal disk mark.

Oh, and how do I check TRIM is enabled.

Thanks for all the help guys,
it is enabled automatically.

Please find attached benchmarks below. It's in German I think, sorry. English is ticked in the menu but it still shows in German? Can I change that?

I don't really know much about what the numbers mean. Do they look okay? I've previously had this running on SATA 2 motherboard so hope it's taking advantage of the SATA 3 (does feel a lot faster but I do have an i5 and 16GB in too).

I can do an "iops" run too if it helps?

Thanks again!

Why do some have over 700 overall score, like the the third post here?

Mine looks very low in comparison?

Cause of your 4k-64thrd score being half of what it normally should be. Don't worry tho, a lot of people have the same issue including me when I had mine. It is a bug in the firmware or something. It does not affect the normal desktop user.

Besides that you're drive is fine.

Ok as long as the performance is the same as the 700+ ones (quite a few of them on there) then I'm not bothered what the display is.

If I bought another identical drive and put them in RAID0 would it double the performance?

Yes. Will it be noticeable most of the time? It depends, if you do a lot of seq reads and writes then yes, otherwise no.

Ok. I've read that I would lose TRIM and garbage collection in RAID which eventually wears out the SSDs so not so keen now as I think the gain in performance over drive wear is probably not worth it.

Garbage collection will run on SSDs whether or not they are in a RAID 0 array. TRIM however is dependent on a few factors.

You have a Z77 chipset, thus you have TRIM support for RAID 0. no need to worry about a thing.
