All SSD performance degrade when there are not enough clean blocks left. However this has been resolived with TRIM.


The drive supports TRIM..... you have Windows 7.... you have an ICH10R. You are fine.
What if you don't have an ICH10R?

Well I was just pointing out the big feature of the Sandforce which is to reverse write amplification via compression... if it works is hard to say of course.

Well make sure you use the write driver (bad pun I know)

So yeah if you're not sure if AMD/JMicron/Whoeverthehell made your driver supported TRIM, then just use the MSAHCI or MS IDE driver that comes with Win7...

Basically if you do nothing (don't install any HDD Controller drivers) you should be good weirdly enough...

With the ICH10R (and other Intel chips), you get TRIM even if you do install the driver...

Also remember you never get TRIM in RAID... until someone makes a driver that supports it.

Say you erase and re-write 25GB to a 100GB ssd, you never actually get it full...Repeat 10,000 times, will only some of the cells will be worn, while the others are not worn at all?

no, a good SSD controller should spread the wear evenly over all the cells.

Yes, you would need to write 1 million gigabytes onto it...

Of course since it's a Sandforce, it compresses the data, so lets just assume the compression wasn't very effective, and it only compressed like 80%... or your data was quite random... that means at 80% writes we're up to 1.25 Million Gigabytes...

lets say you wrote 10GB per day... I know I don't lol, but lets say... so 10GB per day.. that's 125,000 days, or 342 years...

So I don't think endurance of MLC is really a problem... in fact the components on the PCB would probably die of old age before you ran out of write cycles...
i LOVE math. yet i never sat down to do it. you sir get +Rep. you just sold me on an SSD when pricing becomes sane for a decent sized drive. althoughi have toasted flash disks multiple times so...

i been in touch with eric since beginning , basicly 1 email a day if i am lucky to recieve that eric is one who had me try the flash version 1.10 which it didnt work . i have provided eric with all information i have on the drive along to rma dept both which isnt getting me a rma number. i been sick for past week with vertigo and am tired of all this. i feel at this point to purchase another drive one with warranty

Sorry, I hope I'm not hijacking this thread. I've got a question still related to controller.

I'm using G.SKILL falcon 128gb. Just installed win 7. SSD in sata port0, I checked TRIM is working.
I've done all sort of WIN7 + SSD tweaks.

Am I good to go? I don't need intel rapid storage tech for single SSD do I?

Is ICH10R an Intel I/O controller hub? How do I check If I've got ICH10R?

Whenever I cold boot I just let windows sit at the login screen for a few hours to let TRIM work.

TRIM doesn't work like that. However if you have a specific firmware version for the drive, there is a feature that functions like that, called garbage clean up. However I'd assume that unless you specifically put it on there, it would have the regular TRIM firmware.
