For Intel's SSD series, you don't need to worry about the alignment. The peformance differences are neglible.
To keep your SSD running at it's peak, download the Intel SSD Toolbox. Using the Toolbox, schedule a "trim" operation to occur automatically. The "trim" command tells the SSD with Logical Block Addresses (LBAs) are pointing to deleted data. The SSD can use this information to move data around more efficiently, which keeps it running at it's peak.
Hope that helps and enjoy!
Ok thanks! Thats what i thought, but so many people recomend upgrading to windows 7 for solid state, i thought that there must be some difference.
Windows 7 provide the Trim command automatically in case of a single drive (no need of the toolbox scheduler). Altought if you're using it in a raid array (0) you still have to run the scheduled optimizer.
