2 years ago#1
I have it screwed in to the slot. Do most of you guys just leave it on the floor of case?
Will having Sata ports 1-4 in AHCI affect my HDD when I plug it into slot 2? Or say my dvd-drive is in slot 3?
Where do you recommend I keep drivers? SSD or HDD? Malwarebytes? Etc? Already plan onputting things like M.S word on SSD.

From the 256gb only 238 was available. With just Win 8, chrome, steam, LoL, Payday 2 already at like 190 GB. (25gb from payday 2). How low should I keep SSD at? Never below 20gb?
Any other things I should know or general tips?


Lastly, my in the box, there were 8 screws, SSD, this bracket and this weird other piece. What was I supposed to do with the other piece?

On my 256 ssd, I don't like to go under 100 gigs left. but that's just me.

SSD: OS and games you play often.

HDD: everything else.

usually the current gen mobos have 6g/bs for all sata ports. The previous ones have 2 speeds so read up on your manual.

Mine is shoved in the storm trooper's ssd port. Is it really that big of a performance drop to load your ssd up? I'd say don't inconvenience yourself just to keep it halfway empty.
