I think that question answers itself. I have two of the Intel X25M SSD's and wouldn't consider choosing a 3rd party program over the Intel toolbox.

With that said, I am seeing so many elementary questions being asked here that were answered elsewhere in the thread.
I don't recall if it was this thread or the other similar one, but I pointed out nicely that a guide ought to have the answers up front. You can expect people to read all 40+ pages but it won't happen. Well-written guides and FAQs are often ammended with further and/or updated information to alleviate that problem and because no guide is complete.

Edit: and having read through the first 15 pages and not finding an answer I find such responses very aggrevating.

No benchmark advantages for me when I did all of this, but I feel like it is well worth doing for many other reasons. Thank you for the great tutorial OP!

Why not? It would seem the logical thing to do before asking questions like "just what exactly is an SSD?"

Take that slap-in-the-face up with Magic-Man who authored this How To. For his effort I am very grateful. I found it simple to follow. To ask him to constantly babysit it for people too lazy to read is I believe a bit too much.

Thank you M-M for your efforts. I hope such inane criticism will not dissuade you from making further contributions.

Sigh... What I said is the truth and explains why I asked the questions that I did. There was no malice intended or implied. If you wish to take it as an insult then go right ahead, but you are stirring up drama that is not there. Furthermore, for you to be so hypocritical as to criticize people for not reading the thread and then you yourself apparently not read all of the questions to know that they weren't answered in the thread (at least mine weren't in the first half of the thread, nor did they come up overtly through a search) is despicable - not to mention the arrogance inherent in intentionally "dumbing down" someone's question so you can feel good about the comment you originally made.

If you don't want to answer the question then don't answer the question. Effectively doing everything but calling the question stupid in the process of purposely not answering the question is not helping anyone.

I read it, then printed it - yellow-highlighted significant parts, made notes and then numbered the steps for a proper setup. Most groups, sites, etc. advise the reader to do so himself before posting a question that has been asked and answered - either directly or via inference.

Your "nicely" is sure replete with passive-aggressive criticism. Please don't forget that this "How To" was a selfless contribution, for which everyone has expressed gratitude. To my knowledge no one has compensated Magic-Man for his time and effort.

No one asked you for a critique of M-M's work, certainly not the man himself. If you wish to critique/criticize it, then give Magic-Man some face by doing so via PM.

Kind of reminds me of the old saying:

Give a mouse a cookie - and he'll want a glass of milk.

people/posts like ^
is the reason many wont read 40+ pages of posts.
Since plenty of Oftopic stuff which has nothing to do with tweaks nore optimization.
but simply ranting at other people rather than deal with it in PM.

ontopic
only real tweaks ive found usefull has been to disable hibernation and cache since my SSD is small so the two files took up a lot of space on my drive.

Now, that IS funny! Definitely not a queen; of that I can assure you.

In rereading my posts I see how you can build a pretty good case for "drama", however.

For what it's worth I've had some rather heavy surgery recently and was given Oxyconton for pain. Unlike other people I don't get high from it but can become a real troll. It confuses me, makes me lose my balance easily and generally makes me pissed off at the world. I should have known not to post anything other than a Q&A in that condition.

So please accept my apologies. I thought I should say that in Open Forum rather than via PM, because other members who know me would probably be asking themselves "whatever happened to Dennis?" I also don't like In-Forum criticism of anyone or anything.


"Drama Queen", eh? You sure know how to clown somebody.

incurablegeek, you're not alone. I've had way too many times here on OCN where I shouldn't have even logged in because I was really cranky, irritable, tired, dealing with severe allergies, pissed because I just finished sucking at a game, etc. etc. The result of logging in when I am in this condition is always very ugly.

So every time this happens to me, I'm reminded that if I'm not feeling well in some form or another, then I need to avoid OCN at all costs because the chances are very good that I will end up saying things that I can't take back. Or, I might end up giving people a horrible attitude that's so bad that there's nothing I can do to be forgiven. I have people on here who've been hating me for over a year now because of this.

In other words, if you can't learn from your mistake of logging in when you probably shouldn't have, then at least learn from mine. Now before you take this as an insult, hear me out: I still haven't learned my lesson.
It's a computer!
