You don't want to use more then 80% or so with an SSD, you want to leave some space open for long life and performance.
It makes a world of difference in local load games, like Steam games and WoW.
what?
i have a c300 128gb, window 7 + bfbc2, f1 2010, civilization 5. and i still got 55gb of free space.

Win7 are indeed that size even if you get Home. I had made a whole thread about it. Apparently you got to disable hibernate/system restore/ reduce pagefile size and perform various tweaks to shave more than 5-6 GBs...

Tick both...then run ATTO again...after a restart....[/QUOTE]

Checked second option as well. IT didnt seem to matter/ If only, it made things a little worse.

Oh well maybe untick it or leave it a while until drive settles and trims etc that may be why its showing less at the moment, maybe your results are as good as it gets with the athlon cpu and 1333 ram. remember manufacturers seem to test thier hardware on top notch systems...

actually a fair few of the results look higher to me in test two which i presume is with it ticked, esp the 4k


Ive just cancelled the Agility 3 and ordered a c300 128 gb not too keen on these new ssd's where theve robbed the nand from!

At this stage other than navigating to the registry and enabling LARGE SYSTEM CACHE change 0 to 1, then under that modify the SecondLevelDataCache edit the base, tick decimal to your cpu second level cache size mine is 512 x 4 for the 4 cores... hence 2048. That will be about all you can do, assuming you have done the other stuff like disable hibernation, prefetch, superfetch, sys restore off, snd all advanced power settings on max performance, pagefiling up to you and what your happy with, I have none. some dont like that and advise a small pagefile at least, something like 1gb.

Obviously if you are not happy in the registry dont do it

Where have they robbed it from? Do you mean you dont like 25nm technology in particular? Now all SSDs are going to be like that...Why get a 34nm drive that gives worse results though?

I have just disabled hibernation and system restore I havent done any more tweaking... I only have 4GB RAM so i dont know if setting 1GB pagefile is wise...

As for prefetch and superfetch, i'm not really sure on how useful they are and what they affect...

What are the other advanced power settings you refering to?

C300 128gb arrived just now, good to be on a fast ssd lol! already got restart desktop to desktop back to 34 seconds better than that V3 I just sold on! I shall do a couple of bench tests then leave it be.

I think the bigger nand drives were the best (like this C300 and Vertex2) thats from eons of testing Iam disabled so the PC is somewhat my life !

I dont bother with pagefiling it's one of those endless debates, or writing dump files. I think it's best left to the system if one isnt happy disabling it.

Prefetch and superfetch were ok on HDDS as things were placed in a folder (PREFETCH) to aid start times but as SSDs are so fast in most cases having PREFetch will slow the boot as the time the ssd goes to there then boots it would have booted quicker without that detour lol! Thats a rough idea....

You can disable superfetch in services. Then go in reg (pic) the pre and superfetch are on the right usually set at 3 each default. Change them to 0 value and exit regedit and reboot. Oh just before the reboot go to c windows prefetch and tip it all out...leave the single readyboot folder just tip the stuff out of it then restart.

You can put any values in those reg settings like from 0 to 3 the higher the value the more stuff the system prefetches. I only use it on mechanical drives 2 for prefetcher and 1 for superfetcher

Hope that helps, now to some bench tests


oh sorry the Power Settings go to power options set High Performance and in the (pic) have everything High performance, no sleep, processoor 100%, system cooling "passive" not "active" etc

Not bad considering its supposed to be read up to 355 write up to 140 well chuffed, oh and it did better with the second write cache thing unticked !


Ive put a pic of 1st V3 ASSSD after install in my book the £40 cheaper, slightly bigger, with lots of NAND C300 128GB wins

Yeah you get pretty close to the rated values. Did you try unchecking the first cache option as well? I read that SSD cache is useless so it is arguable that disabling cache will possibly improve performance?

BTW i'm having some weird issues with my SSD-mobo combo so i guess i'm done with tweaking stuff on my side...
