    Actually I just noticed the two of the articles aren't listed above. I will have to fix that. If you look at the end of the articles, you will find two additional articles which speak to fresh installs and garbage collection.

    This is a great guide and it will come in handy because at this point there are a lot of beginners or at least those that are new to setup of an SSD drive as opposed to the traditional mechanical drive! My problem is going to be understanding the settings in the vast array of differant motherboards! I have a unused but new Gigabyte motherboard and had it for awhile in the box ! It has a vast amount of settings for ACHI IDE and Raid and I would be interested in seeing some screen shots of Bios settings to get a better idea what Im looking at on an actual set up! I had brain surgery so unfortunatly that has diminished some of my cognitive skill to think as well so Show And Tell sometimes is what I have to rely on and to me SSD,s are the replacement and cure for a weak link in anyones computer and is the way I will be going! I guess Im asking do you have some actual bios screenshots of setups to go along with the guides! The Guides and performance tweaks here are fantastic looking forward to putting them to work because Im always trying to squeeze a little more out of my build! Thanks

    This is such a great site because the technical information is delivered in an easy-to-read entertaining manner! So many tech sites are like reading my old text books from my college years...they still put me to sleep. Great reviews and peripheral information as well. Im new here and enjoying neew discoveries. Keep of the grea work SSD Folks!
