This SSD tweak guide still good to use?

Im going to install my new Samsung 830 256 gig SSD today.
I was just doing some last minute reading to see what to do. I found this tweak guide in this forum. This article was posted on December 19, 2010.
I was wondering if anything in this guide does not apply anymore since there has been new improvements and technology developed since this article was posted -http://www.computing.net/howtos/show/solid-state-drive-ssd-tweaks-for-windows-7/552.html

List of what they say to do:
Set to AHCI Mode:
Verify TRIM is Enabled
Disable System Restore
Disable Drive Indexing
Disable Drive Defragmentation Schedule
Disable PageFile
Disable Hibernation
Disable Prefetch and Superfetch
Disable Windows Write-Cache Buffer Flusing
Disable Windows Search and Superfetch
Disable ClearPageFileAtShutdown and LargeSystemCache
Adjusting the Power Settings

Thanks for your input on this.

More about this tweak guide good
  1. Best answer
    It is still an excellent drive. However, some of the points are debatable. Not that they are wrong, it's just that the opposite opinion has a decent-size following of experienced people. These are

    Disable drive indexing
    Disable PageFile
    And, to a much lesser degree, disable Hibernation (only do this if you want to hibernate a lot).

    I personally fall on the side of enabling these. I'd rather have the drive work hard for me and wear out sooner in exchange for a faster experience.
  2. So what items in my op list did you do?
    I am like you, I want Max performance from my drive, if it wears ot in 2 years, no biggie I'll buy another one
