Now who doubts, just like me, that this is going to be popular ? Tweaking an SSD for performance, whilst your most precious data is stored on it ? Yeah, me neither.*As it appears, it is also possib...

Oh dear...I'm soooo looking forward to reading about drive crashes, drives been wiped and drives that don't boot anymore. ;-)

After reading this am really happy that my i7 3930K is out of picture because am pretty sure that I would have want to try this and most probably would lose data Thanks Intel. bring on Haswell-E!!

Data is much more valuable than any hardware prices out there...if you don't backup your data playing with this kind of oc it's like pointing a gun at your head

Although important data should be backed up anyway, I still wouldn't overclock a storage device. Reinstalling an operating system due to corruption can be a pain.

Even overclocking a case sounds like a better idea than overclocking a harddrive.....lol

Overclock then check for reliability? 24 hour stress tests don't bode well for SSD's.

The idea isn't a complete loss though. Conceptually, you could have 'standard' mode, for normal operation, and a pre-configured 'overclocked' modes (maybe a 'safe' mode and one that pushes things to the limits) that is still within the upper drive limits, but with the downside of greater power usage. Standard systems would use the standard mode, those enthusiasts wanting a little extra can try the 'safe' overclock mode without overtly risking their data, and then the 'stupidly' risky mode could warn you upon each time applying, and upon boot etc (if you can set it in the drive firmware).

Simply being able to change the drive's controller speed, timings etc would be pointless as most people wouldn't know where to start, it would vary drastically from model to model, and just creates too much risk. The preconfigured modes (pretested) is the only realistic way this could be done without getting a massive backlash from all those users who get carried away with their tweaking.

Sooooo what real performance would you actually see? I mean SSD's are already crazy fast I don't think risking complete data loss and hours of reinstalling software for 1 or 2 seconds of boot time is a viable option.

But then i suppose there are those who do simply because they can..

I think otherwise they are very smart while introducing oc on their ssd they will make a very large profit from enthusiasts overclockers (who knows how many they will destroy to try and achieve the highest possible oc) while in the meantime introducing a new feature that other ssd manufacturers might have to pay them to integrate oc ... Conclusion it always comes down to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
