I wonder how hard it would be to make the Tuner program work for other SSDs? If all it's doing is OS optimisations it shouldn't be too much trouble.
Off topic, has anyone got any advice for configurations to optimise an OCZ Vertex (1st ed)?
Hope it works on my 160 G2... It wont become any faster because o my ICH8M-E...
EDIT: It's the same performance as before
But now I see that I already made 2.81T of writes on the SSD (how??), it only has 9 months...
Cool, I'll be giving this a try tonight.
*puts the pedantic hat on*
towards end of the second paragraph it should read 'but the first offers some...'
other than that, something like this would be handy for other SSD makes... surely the changes to the system settings would be the same for any SSD?
I have had mine for 5 months and didn't even know they made a toolkit for it.
Will try it right away.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand it doesn't work. I click on my SSD and it refreshes again.
D'oh - branephart. Fixed, cheers.
i didn't even know this existed
"intel recommends running Intel SSD Optimizer once a week"
i used it for the 1st time today.
thanks for the notice..... would have seen it otherwise. Didnt really do anything to my system, apart from advise me to turn super-fetch off. Personally, its something I find helps performance even with a SSD.
Did you do any other tweaks to your system? I took the page file off my ssd etc.
I've had my 160GB G2 since Dec 09
so about 8 months
And i'm only at 778GB's in host writes!
Never did that... I did it on my Q6600 with the GSkill Falcon and forgot to do it in this SSD on the notebook... big fail...
Now I give lots of credit to HDD's too... That's alot of writes to do. Now with this toolkit It will be ok
Same for me Ross1. Also, predictably, the stuff about doing a TRIM on the drive says I can't run it because my drive is one of the first generation 50nm Intel SSD's, not the second generation 32nm ones.
Cheers Intel. I really like being screwed by no TRIM support for being an early adopter. You are not telling me it's impossible to implement it on this drive, they just don't want to.
Yay! I'm getting this right now. I use the old one once a week like it recommends. I don't know what it does if anything. Hopefully this one will do it's mysterious tweaking well.
Thanks for the update, interestingly it wanted to disable prefetch along the already disabled Superfetch which Windows 7 disabled on first install.
