Hello, I just purchased a INTEL 330/180 GB SSD to use as a boot drive for my PC build using the ASRock 970 Extreme3 MB, the drive appears to be recognized by Windows 7 Pro 64 bit as a 167.8 GB drive, while the INTEL SSD Tool Box recognizes the drive as 180 GB. My question is what happened to the remaining 12.2 GB of the drive? any and all help with this question will be greatly appreciated.

Don't worry, it's just the old issue of measuring capacity in gigabytes (GB) and gibibytes (GiB)
