I just installed an intel 530 ssd 240 gig. intel data migration tool worked great in clone mode.
c drive size 82 gigs win 8.1 (I keep all my data on another drive and cleared all my temp files).
an hour later I plugged it in as C: and it works great.
One big mistake I made was not disabling defrag.
it locked up my computer. had to reboot and disabled it in the task scheduler and defrag settings.
