    Default Installing OS onto New SSD

    are there any special requirements as far as installing a fresh OS onto a new SSD? I have heard that Defragging an SSD can brick it, and after a clean install doesnt it auto defrag?

    Does anyone have any experience putting an OS onto an ssd?

    in response to the defragmentation of an SSD on windows 7, is that true about it being bricked? Should I never Defrag?

    On installing the os on the ssd is same as doing it on a hdd.There are though some functions that need to be disabled and automatic defragmentetion is one of them.There was a thread that explains these functions and how to disable i am looking it atm and will post link.


    Ok Skyguy explains everything here My first AMD build...

    after installation of the SSD go to HDD properties and disable Defragment hard drive then change your PageFile from the default C: to another drive that is non-SSD

    And yes you should not Defrag the SSD drive. But im not too sure if you will brick it, it should not though

    *EDIT follow skyguy's instructions and you should be pretty much covered

    Default Is it worth?

    Let me ask your opion. Is it worth to have two of SSD in RAID 0?
    Because it's will be double the cost but you won't guarantee to have double the speed.

    according to 4Ham's benchmark his OCZ Vertex. A single disc is can read up to 200MB and write up to 160MB vs. Raid 0, max read is 432MB and average is 234MB.

    I dont think It would be worth the astronomical price of a dual SSD setup at the moment. One will hold me perfectly fine for an OS. Its just not cost effective at this point in time. Now later on down the line when they become more mainstream and affordable, you bet Im going to lean towards a raid 0 ssd setup.

    touche skyguy. Umm well its not that Im hurting for money, but as far as performance whise, I dont see the significant jump from a single ssd that costs almost 400 bucks, to two of them for questionably twice the speed. Its already a gigantic performance increase from even a VR drive to an ssd, I think for the time being that one ssd is enough.

    Excellent choice.I have seen review that saws agility at same performance with vertex and in some tests is even faster.I am between the agility 60gb and intels 80gb but i will propably buy intels ssd for the slight extra capacity.
