change it AHCI. native ide wont use trim I think (or ncq either).

your bios looks a bit confusing but it looks like it has 2 controllers set on that menu and the main controller is not AHCI only the second one is.

Also see if corsair have an app that allows a manual TRIM run.

Here is something I think you should check out.
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Besides re-installing, Bear's solution should work for you.
Your board has the Gigabyte controller (SATA II, white) and the AMD controller (SATA III, blue).
If your SSD is an SATA III drive, you want it hooked to the blue connectors.
You currently have AHCI enabled on the SATA II controller.
