Yes, it will perform better after using the Intel the toolbox as a special command it can send (and the drive looks for) to do a "TRIM" like command even in IDE mode (though its more like the command Inid's wiper.exe sent). That was the biggest claim to fame of the Intel Toolbox as it allowed systems that did not support AHCI mode properly to still support the Intel SSDs "properly" ;)
