A while back I posted a question about changing from ide to ahci on my\ncomputer. I am running a 40 gig Intel ssd that was in ide mode. One of\nthe other poster's (Paul)gave me or posted a easy way to change to ahci\nwith a script from his website. I finally got around to doing that\nyesterday and it seriously dropped my WEI from 7.2 to 5.9. The question\nwould be why it would do that? I may have made a error in assuming that\nit would have stayed the same or improved it.My main reason was to make\nit easier for the Intel toolbox to be able to update the firmware and\nschedule the trim function.The next question is I just ordered a new\nIntel 320 series 120 gig ssd to replace my current Intel X25 40 gig ssd\nas it is down to 3 gigs free with only windows in the drive. Will that\nmake the WEI bounce back or will it stay the same? Should I switch back\nto IDE?\n\nRunning Win 7 pro fully updated\nIntel D975XBX2 motherboard\n8 gigs ram\n40 gig ssd\n2 160 gig Seagate Barracuda's.
