Frankly, more often than not, I reckon I'm the bottleneck rather than the system. After that, it's the CPU. I often find programs running at 12% (4C w/HT) to 25% (4C) CPU utilization which suggests it's only using a single-core or if load is spread out in multiple threads, that it's waiting for a single process to finish.

To follow up I ended up selling the 120GB 840 for $100 locally and bought a brand new Intel 335 180GB SSD for $80 locally. I figured the increase in storage space would be pretty good considering 120GB is a bit on a the small side. I hope the Intel 335 is just as good or better considering it uses MLC nand.

Does anyone know how Intel is in terms of warranty without receipt? It was a brand new sealed unit but since it was a person to person purchase I wasn't given a receipt.

Also, it kind of sucks that the drive isn't 7mm but it looks like a lot of the space inside is wasted based on some pictures. I wonder of there are replacement cases for this SSD to make it a 7mm drive if i decide to use it in an ultrabook in the future.

Nice deal. Yeah, that's better than the Samsung 840 120GB.

Last time I RMA'd something (Gb NIC), Intel didn't ask for a receipt. That was back in 2008. No idea what their policy is now.

Mine has both a mSATA and 7mm 2.5" SATA bay. You can only boot from the bay in mine tho, the mSATA is just for storage/caching.

Yeah many ultrabooks use mSATA but I do have one that has both mSATA for Intel cache and 7mm drive. I just wanted to keep my options available in the future considering I pretty much use my electronics till they die lol. So maybe in the future when 180GB isn't viable anymore I can use it as a cache drive for Intel SRT lol.
