    First time - is this all there is to do?


      My first SSD will be here in a couple days and just want to make sure I have everything lined up. I've been reading up on what you need to do to get it working, is this it? Did I miss anything?

      From the Intel SSD user guide:

      Verify scheduled Defrag is turned off.

      Disable Superfetch

      Make sure you have the proper drivers installed - Intel Rapid Storage Technology V 9.6?


      From else where I read:

      Set the bios to AHCI mode when installing Windows

      Use the latest Intel RST drivers

      Run the optimization tool from the Intel SSD toolbox


      Do I need the Toolbox?


      What I have:

      Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2MH080G2R5  80Gig

      Custom computer

      Windows 7 Pro 32 bit

      Gigabyte MB

      Intel Quad Q8400

      4G memory


      Thanks for any help.
