  1. Hi Guys, I am hoping someone could take a little time to help me out. I recently set up 2 x 256 SSD's in a RAID 0 configuration. I'm keen on keeping them as healthy as possible and understand trimming is the best thing for this. From what I've gathered on some of the forums, svl7's bios flash is the bomb (kudos). So the part where I need help is: I am frightened of bricking my warez and I am a hardcore flashing noob. Could anyone point me in the right direction of a kind of flashing for dumbies guide for the m18x r2 ? or perhaps detail some of the finer points in going about this so I can start seeing some trimming action without turning my beast into a oversized paperweight?

  3. A very nice way to boost your computer's performance is by installing an SSD. Even though SSDs are way faster than HDDs, still NANDs used on SSDs and the SATA 2/3 protocol cannot be compared to the speed of a DDR3 RAM. A solution to this gap is a RAMDisk. With current chipset architectures that allow even laptops to have up to 32GB of RAM, someone who can afford it and wants the maximum performance for the money s/he paid should seriously consider a solution like that. I was thinking of a scenario with the soon to be released Alienware M18x, that supports up to 32GB of RAM. Keep 8GB for the OS and dedicate the rest 24GB to the RAMDisk. Inside that space you can allocate the pagefile, assign all the temp files, caches like that used by the web browser (that instead of being written on the disk would now be written much more faster on your RAM) and install programs that you use the most and you need them to run as fast as possible. You won't have to worry about the wear and tear of your SSD, since at the end of the day all the data will be written in a serial manner to your SSD, you will utilize your RAM in a more efficient way since most of the times it remains unused, the pagefile will remain on your SSD instead of the slower SSD/HDD and will reduce the wear of it. You can even install an OS in there using VM. That OS would literally fly. Cons are the cost and the limited size of RAM, plus you need a 64bit version of windows to be able to utilize more than 3GB of RAM, it will as prolong the shut down times since it will have to write everything to your SSD at the end of the day. So what do you think about it? Do you have any other ideas about maximizing your computer's performance?
  4. OCZ has released a new firmware update that helps fix random BSOD's with their sata III drives. 2.15 Issues resolved since version 2.13:  Fixed a rare condition that may cause Windows Blue Screen error when the primaryconfigured drive woke up from either a SATA slumber mode or S3/S4 modes  Fixed a rare condition that may cause Windows Blue Screen error when the drive was configured as primary with OS installed  Fixed a corner-case issue that may cause the drive to stutter or Windows freezing screen when a media read error occurred  Further improved robustness of Secure Erase operation to prevent possible low-level data structure corruption  Significantly improved TRIM handling to enhance system stability OCZ official site OCZ Technology OCZ firmware update instructions Bootable Tools for OCZ SandForce Driven SSD's OCZ bootable firmware update tool ocz_fwupd_1.642.12.04.zip I have had success with this update to 2.15, no more BSOD's and the drives seem more responsive in my M18x. (if thats possible, lol)
  5. You may have heard a lot of talk about Solid State Drives (SSDs) recently. In the last six months or so they’ve really taken the mid-range to high end computing world by storm. If a manufacturer decides to include a solid state drive in their computer, they’ll make sure that you know it’s there. But what are they? Find out in Hard Drive of the Future: Your Guide to Solid State Drives. This guide, from Lachlan Roy, outlines everything you need to know about the future of storage technology. You’ll learn their history and what to look for when shopping for one. Remember: if you own a flash drive, you own a solid state drive. Soon all computers will use the exact same technology for internal drives. This amazing guide explains: The history of solid state drives Kinds of SSDs on the market How SSDs compare to conventional drives Whether you should buy an SSD Things to look out for when shopping.

  6. I want to reinstall Windows on my SSD, how do you guys usually do this? Do you secure erase the SSD or can I simply use the format function during the Windows install? I'm still more or less a noob when it comes to SSDs
