    Not really. The slowest part will always be the 5400 RPM platter drive. Personally I would just use SSD for everything.

    I Try to clean install to ssd from usb or dvd but I always get the following error message when the installation is on the "Installing updates" step of the installation:

    "Setup cannot continue due to a corrupted installation file. Contact the vendor of your Windows installation disc or your system administrator for assistance."
    Even i change with others type of windows but always stuck at same place..
    any solution?

    I know people like to say a clean install is too much work or takes too long, but with a little planning ahead, it won't take very long at all. It will also leave you with an updated system, working as well as your computer can. It would be well worth the small investment in time.
