What's your thoughts on the additional points from that guide AKG? Worthwhile, or not so much?

Just got my intel 530 120gb (from BST) in and running a couple of days ago (still more installing to do yet though). I have made the changes you recommended, but not much else.

Any other pointers for a new to SSD guy?

Crap. Just saw the thread bump. SORRY! These days the only real main things you need to is make sure TRIM is working...and leave as much room as free as possible. The rest of the stuff in this thread is for long term thinking (ie you want it to last so long that the controller and not the NAND doesnt die first).

Make sure TRIM is working....run this. https://github.com/CyberShadow/trimcheck ;)
