So I have bought a intel 520 240gb ssd for my t430 (i7 3612qm) and I am not quite sure if it is performing as it should. I did a fresh install of windows because when I tried to do system image then change alignment it still was incorrect. So after downloading as ssd , my alignment was good and ahci was good as well. However in crystalmark my stats are such:
Is this average results for this ssd? Is there something else I need to do to get the performance up?
Also, I updated firmware with intel sandbox and used that tool's tuning features.
And, should I make only 1 parition? I have 2 partition, C and D.
Also my Windows 7 experience index is quite low at primary disk (5.9). Why is that? In the first month when I used the SSD, the score was 7.9
