I have 8GB of RAM, but I set the page file to 400MB so that if and when my PC crashes, it can generate/write an error report to disk and I can be able to send it to MS.

Default somethinking

Well ive discovered a way to keep the performance up on your ssd. Dont put windows on it. Put everything else such as games, pictures, whatever. I know its kinda stupid. Windows is constantly reading and writing to C: drive right!! That's the actions that degrades performance of a SSD. Also ive notice that some antivirus programs that run auto scans in background. Ive notice with bit defender ever since i set scanning to manual do it say every week it seems my pheonix read and writes have stayed up higher than before. who knows maybe its just my drive. After using alot of stuff on this forum it still wouldn't stay above 100m/s for over a month. Now going 2 months and still above 100m/s

Default Just enjoy it!

@Chosin - I think there's a misconception that SSDs are some fragile porcelain dolls to be admired from behind a glass case... I know what you're trying to get at - that it's a relatively expensive investment at this point, worth "protecting", but still, let's not get carried away and suggest next to not even unwrap it and just admire it while it's in the box. Use it, enjoy it - run it as much as you can doing EVERYTHING that it was meant to do - OS, hardcore everything... trust me, that drive will still perform perfectly at the time when you'll already be replacing it, and you will be replacing it... And if you're only worried about synthetic benchmarks and showing off those benchmarks, well, then you'll always be stressed and you'll never just chill and enjoy what you have. It's a toy - play with it.

omnimodis78 It was not to say dont use it. ideas of other uses for the drive it was prob stating the obvious. But it was observation. Everyone puts their OS on it. But the other uses haven't been explored. Such using it as storage and quickly accessing the data on it (home movies, mp3, games whatever.) Everyone is complaining about losing performance with OS installed to it. So just throwing some ideas about. Its the first time within a two week time frame that it didnt drop random I/O below 100 m/s and was sharing my experience. Sad thing is my intel X-25 doesnt do that. It keeps its specs for months. Just opinion
