haha well I know myself well enough to say that it's likely that I'll probably procrastinate and put it off yet again. I've been considering this for over a week now.

ahhhh well I can't put it off...new parts arrive tomorrow and I don't want to wait to install them
My current mobo causes a boot hangup of about 1 minute and 30 seconds so I hate turning the thing off.
I also have a bad stick of RAM or somthing else that causes it to turn off like once every few days.... coming out of sleep it is fine, but from a total off....sucks man

Whenever I do that it puts all my old windows and program files into a "windows.old" folder.
With the limited space on the SSD I was trying to avoid that ya know?

Edit: just looked up TRIM, sounds good but I think I'll just wipe it clean to start now

But TRIM happens automatically when you have Windows 7, a solid state drive that supports it, and I think also when using a motherboard that supports it. I mean, it's not something that is run manually.

I think it may be a simple change in the BIOS for most modern motherboards. I would check now, but I am at work and away from my PC.

I was told a few different times that TRIM even works in IDE mode (that is, when I thought that TRIM only works in AHCI mode).

I'm just saying that I stand corrected. I mean, I haven't done any research on it to see if it's true, but I've been "corrected" by a few different people in a few different threads that TRIM works in IDE mode too, so I believe it. They stressed that the main difference between IDE mode and AHCI mode that most people would care about is that AHCI mode supports Native Command Queuing.
