Do you use the Intel SSD Toolbox? It is a free download that will help you maintain your SSD, and also tune your PC for use with a SSD. That might help with your problem.
I also suggest you change your Windows Power Option to High Performance, and in the Advanced options, in Hard Disk, set Turn off disk after to Never.
As odd as this may sound, have you ever run the Windows Experience Index utility, under Performance Options and Tools? It may have run on its own, but if you have no score, run it. That will tell Windows you have a SSD, and it will change some settings automatically.
Hi Thank You
for looking into my issue.
Whatever you suggested was done. After fresh windows install At first I haven't spotted my issue
because I was turning off my pc. The other day I decided to keep it up running
for a week or so to see how reliable it is. And that was a time when I start
observing freezes that force me to do the hard reset and create a kernel power 41
critical error cause of unexpected shutdown. Now I read a lot of guides and
been to many forums it seems like some people have issue with Intel's very own
IRST Driver and suggest uninstalling it. I did so myself and my pc is now going
for 48 h + run that includes idle time, playing music, Photoshop work and
playing GPU demanding games MAXED OUT in dx11.
The IRST driver that I had was 10.8.0.1003 I see now that Version 11.x.x.xxxx is available to
download but to be honest I want to see how far my pc goes without the freeze Without
these drivers. I have very good hardware components and I very much doubt that any of them might be a
Plus I haven't noticed any performance differences without the drive according
to ATTO Disk benchmark speeds are same or very close to close to tell.
