Drlucky, thanks for the response. I was beginning to think there was noone here! :)
Is there a more active community for the Extreme II somewhere?
I know about the advantages of Win 7 and someday I’ll do it but for now, I need to get back up and running after my OCZ Vertex drive died.
I was planning on doing the same thing I did 3 years ago when I started using the OCZ, which is basically using diskpart to align the Extreme II in another machine and formatting it, then do a fresh install.
Are TRIM and AHCI worth persuing? I don’t need any more performance, in other words I’m not looking to split hairs a get slightly faster.
