purchased a mushkin 120 enhanced chronos for my lenovo b570


there is just so much information online some of it seems legitimate but alot of it is most likely outdated


With so much information which ones should i follow?

from what i can understand before i install windows 7 i should enable AHCI

then just let windows 7 install normally(letting it format and align the drive itself)

then boot in and disable disk defragmentation(from what i hear it is suppose to be disabled by default)

then make sure trim is on

then what?

should prefetching be on? i hear some people do and others dont

are there other things i should worry about?
