Just that values.

 

Valid Spare Blocks Current Value 71 Spare Blocks
Initial Invalid Blocks Current Value 20 Bad Blocks
Hardware ECC Recovered Current Value 184 Corrected ECC

 

 

They are acceptable for using ssd or they shouldnt be?

No it shouldn't. Drives do this by design: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/geom/errorECC-c.html

I am sorry, but I feel you would like to RMA the drive anyway, for some other reason. You don't like it somehow, or you would like to have different model...


So it seems I was wrong with my (purposeful) accusation. I am sorry about that Smiley Wink

Just start using the drive! SSD as a boot drive should be mandatory for any system Smiley Tongue

Last thing. 

Every few hours my ssd Crucial Bx 100 making clicking/ticking noise for 5-10 seconds then noise goes away. I put my ears close to ssd and its coming from ssd. Any ideas?

 

, Its just making ticking noise for a few seconds like watch and then noise goes away .

 

Its coming from that ssd, i dont have HDD and any fans on that area. So its something wrong? 

When i am touching my back panel of case noise is go away. Maybe some kind of vibration?

It's also normal for them to make noise: http://forum.crucial.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?filter=location&location=forum-board%3Assd...

 

Honestly, unless you actually have a problem with it, just continue a sensible backup strategy (which you should with any drive) and just sit back and enjoy the speed. Smiley Happy

Since you are able to stop it by touching the case it is possible that is some kind of vibration. So maybe it doesn't come from the drive?

I dont have any fans on that area and any hdd. Only ssd plugged. ANd sometimes for 5-10 seconds i can hear ticking noise ( like watch ) coming from ssd area. When i put my finger on case noise is gone.  Or again when i touch again my case by finger noise is audible again.


So its a king of vibration propably?

There's no moving parts in an SSD. They're famous for it. Smiley Happy  So it can;t be causing a physical vibration. As linekd above, it could be making an electrical noise.  But if it's an actual vibration - then it's something else in your system.
