Something I've noticed is that I can hear a high pitched noise from my Crucial M4 during heavy write operations such as extracting a 2GB zip file.
The behavior is not unique to my Thunderbolt setup, but I suspect its exposed open-air nature makes it more apparent. I heard the same thing when I opened the case of my PC (which housed a 128GB Crucial M4) and when briefly using a bare USB 2.0 to SATA adapter on my notebook (connected to another 256GB Crucial M4).
It's not something I am worried about, but my friend warned me noises usually mean dying capacitors or a bad power source. I think I just have sensitive hearing, combined with how silent my iMac is when the hard drive is asleep.
For the curious, the sound is a much quieter form of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuijfJfQxts

i have an other installation, so show you the new results.
- iMac 2012 21 i5 2,7 "
- LaCie Thunderbolt/USB3 enclosure ( i unmount the 1 to inside original)
- Crucial M4 512 Go with last Firmware ( i put the ssd in lacie e,closure)
Results with thunderbolt connection :
Results with USB 3.0 connection :
It's the same results that Thunderbolt connection but sligthy better (approximately 5 at 10 Mo/s in read and write)
I choose Thunderbolt connection for my daily use because Thunderbolt manage TRIM instruction.
For information, we show that there results are more worse than with the Samsung 830 serie 256 Go and the Segeate enclosure.
