That 8gb will go to virtual memory which is used for paging file. You can turn off that paging file by going to Control Panel -> System -> Advance Tab -> Performance -> Setting.

Or since you have 6GB RAM you can set a fixed size of 200-400MB for pagefile if you want to keep it on the SSD. Alternatively move pagefile to another HD to save on writes as I have done.

You can also Disable Hibernation to save some GB.

Don't forget system restore either. That's good for about 8-10 gigs...

is 200-400 enough and will windows perform faster if its on the ssd versus 8 gig file on a seperate hdd?

Yes page file can remain on SSD, and you can have a small one since you have 6GB of actual RAM

RE: Trim

It says on your sig you're running windows 7... if you run the default Microsoft AHCI or IDE drivers you can get Trim going, or upgrade to the latest Intel drivers (Assuming the SSD is plugged into your ICH10)

otherwise boot from a USB or CD as instructed on OCZ forums... I will look into it for you, but it's often easier to burn a disc from an ISO then to get a Flash drive to be bootable...

http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...ther-downloads

EDIT: Further reading on that forums, looks like their Firmware updates are all over the place, can't update from x without having y etc etc you should probably post what version otherwise I can't advise you.

Although if your firmware is already ok, then here is Wiper: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...rase-and-Wiper

As TheDreadedGMan also says 200-400MB for Pagefile should be enough since you have 6GB system RAM. Pagefile will perform faster on SSD but I have not noted any decreases in speed when I moved Pagefile over to my secondary WDC HD.

allthatisman's tip is good too. I myself disabled System Restore to get some GB free and save on writes when I installed my SSD. If you want to do the same, be sure to also delete previous created restores so you get the space back

If you don't mind losing all your restore points, just disabling System restore completely will delete all of them...
Myself, I've never actually used System restore, but I usually suggest to other people to keep at least a few GB enabled.
