Question Question about AHCI and Trim

Hello!

I recently bought a 120 GB Force-Series SSD. Everything is working fine but I am a bit confused about the whole Trim story. It seems like a good thing, and I'd like to enable it. So I've checked the CMD and apparently the Trim function is enabled etc.

Though, I have no clue about the AHCI deal. I am using an AMD chipset motherboard, Asus M4A78T-E, and I heard the AMD AHCI drivers are bad (whatever that means). But I heard that you could enable windows AHCI drivers... How do I do this? I just want Trim to work on my SSD.

If anyone could help me I would be very grateful.

Best regards

P.S. I am running in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

You don't need AHCI for TRIM but if you want to enable AHCI you will have to perform the steps in the sticky: first a registry edit and then change the BIOS value. The next time windows boots it will install the microsoft AHCI drivers automatically which for all intents and purposes is a very good driver.

So Trim is working even without Ahci?

I am currently running in IDE mode, and apparently according to some Trim actually works in IDE? There's so much talk and info about this - making me really confused... :P

There is nothing to be confused about. TRIM works in IDE mode, that's what I've been saying.
