It's okay, no offense taken.

I just noticed that you are using an AMD system. Some people have got a major performance gain with Intel based SSDs in AMD platforms by disabling C1E.

I already secure erased my SSD couple of times already before installing this OS. Still got terrible results with 4k. I remember getting good benchmark numbers when I first bought it.

I just re-read my post "I guess I will have to live with this kind of crappy respond." I meant crappy respond from my SSD, not attacking anybody. I really appreciate your works Telnet. My brain went on vacation with that last sentence. I'm sorry if I offended you.
Firmware is the program loaded on your SSD's controller.
Drivers are the programs loaded by Windows to access your SATA controller.

So, yes very different things.

The Intel ICH/PCH SATA drivers have different versions, the latest one (for now) is 9.6 (Rapid Storage Technology):

The X25 firmware is currently up to 02HD, so you're good on that one.

What system are you testing on? obviously can't be your sig rig as that's AMD...

Bump for those with Kingston 40gb SSD's
post #234 of 285
Hey guys I just used this post for upgrading my Kingston SSD, which I have been using for 1.5 years now without TRIM. I don't feel any difference though, but I checked that TRIM was enabled via CrystalDiskInfo, but furthermore I noticed that my drive has a Host Writes Value of 2.93 TB!!!! Have I been using THAT much? My SSD health condition has also degraded to 99 % so I guess there are a few bad sectors at this time. I do reinstall my OS on a regular basis, some might say I do it too often, but my SSD doesn't seem to mind. Anybody noticed a boost in anything except for within synthetic tests?

If you do a clean reinstall often, you probably won't notice a difference. The slowdown would probably be more evident if you never reinstalled. TRIM itself doesn't make a clean drive any faster, but it stays in that "fast" state.

Has anybody tried the unmodified exe? I don't have access to my Kingston drive at the moment, but it seems that the exe contains strings of "kingston". There's a slight chance they have fixed the updater so that Kingston drives are updated too. (Or maybe not). If it doesn't work, I may take a look at it during the weekend. Not as high on my priority list as it previously was, as TRIM is already working.
