Windows 7: SSD Question: TRIM and AHCI for this Gigabyte motherboard

04 Jul 2012   #1

SSD Question: TRIM and AHCI for this Gigabyte motherboard

I'm using a GA-M750SLI-DS4 with a NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI Chipset along with Crucial M4 128 GB SSD.

When I check if TRIM is enabled I get a 0 (which means yes). But I've read that nForce chipsets don't have TRIM support?!? is this true?

from (bare foot kid):
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

"Just to put in here for nForce users, nForce boards do not support AHCI (with the exception of nForce boards that include onboard graphic cards), and also don't send the TRIM command for SSDs.

Also, they don't hav AHCI support, right? Is there a way around this?

As far as I am aware, the nForce controllers don't send the trim command, but if you use the Microsoft controllers, they will send the trim command.
