This Intel 510 is plenty fast for me, what a difference CS loads so so fast I am beside myself. This is the fastest system I have ever owned. I DL'ed the Intel SSD toolbox 2.0.2.000 and it seems pretty cool but is there a way to see if trim is activated?

I know I am a SSD nub.

If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

Hey I am thinking of getting a SSD. I want a good quality and reliable one, so from what I have read, the Intels have good ratings.

I want to get an 80GB or possibly 120GB. My boot partition now is 80GB and I'm only using 65GB of it and this is a 1 year old install. I am thinking 80GB will be enough.

This will go into a X58 setup, but should I get a SATA 6 one for when I move to the next chipset, possibly next year? I can't see going to Sandy Bridge in 2011.

Thanks

Is it safe to use up all available space on an ssd, even with winodws installation on it? or should I have at least some space left free?

I think leaving 15% available is correct. I wouldn't fill it all up.

My 30GB boot drive only has ~5% free space and still runs great.

Well rule of thumb used to be 15% maybe that has changed.

Maybe my understanding of how SSDs work is flawed- but when you think about it do SSDs have seek times? Theres no platter to rotate, and no arm with a read/write head to get into position.

Much like RAM the data has an address where it's stored and that is it. When the data is needed it is fetched from that address. Thus it shouldn't really matter how full the drive is in regards to its performance.

Granted, I'm not an expert on all things SSD so I may be way off. But that's my understanding of SSDs.

i think the extra space comes in handy when moving chunks of files or large files around. Like as the the swap file grows and moves around I think it would need extra space to limit how much it fragments. The more fragments, the longer it takes to piece together the data and therefore longer read times

That makes sense- much like the cache on a HDD, right? I'd imagine if you don't have enough free space for that it'd just use RAM which is plenty fast enough anyways. If not, then I can definitely see how it'd slow things down.
