    I find CrystalMark isnt always 100% accurate for benching SSDs'

    I always prefer ATTO and my benches are faster then the review for the 128Gb Crucial M4.

    I get at least 520-530mb/s (maybe more) read tops

    Can't wait to get my Corsair Force Series 3 180GB SSD. Question, should I install Win 7 x64 on it or just use it as a pure gaming drive. I plan on putting my STEAM folder along with other game folders on this drive.

    Thanks,

    Install Win7 on it, I have tried many ways to get the best out of an SSD and installing your OS to it is one of the most profiting things you could do :)
    Games loading times aren't going to benefit THAT much from it apart from a few games, this is probably because I used a 10k RPM HDD for them, if you were using a 7,2k you should see a good amount of time saved on loading ;)
    What you'll really feel different is your OS that gets quick and snappy, no more waiting times and such.
     
    Super XP says thanks.

    I just installed my SSD (Sata3, super fast) the other day.

    YES: everything is "crispier"

    NO: "best upgrade in 30 years evar" as many here state.

    REALLY: Nothing worth to tell. Everything is as ordinary, as before. Maybe because my kit is already fuckin'4400 Mhz fast. But for sure the Samsung 830 looks like a piece of jewelry : )

    Just to let you know.
