When I was researching Intel SSD's, I found this Tool Box at the Intel site. The program helps you optimize Intel SSD's and also monitors drive health.

Here's the link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...&DwnldID=18455

Be sure to read the "Which File Do I Download?" page first.

If you install the program, read the Help file that comes with it before you perform any operations.

If you have Puget machine, they set things up pretty well for you, so you may not have to do much, if anything, but it's worth a look-see. I installed an Intel 520 240GB SSD myself, so I had to make sure everything is up to snuff.

I hope you find this as useful as I did.
