What else do you have hook to your computer?

Just hook your ssd to a Sata port (non Marvell) set your bios to default.

I know nothing about Gigabyte bios so I have no idea how you are seeing SCSI devices in Disk Management.
No, I put the page file back to the SSD where it belongs, with reduced page file to 200mb and 2gb according to Samsung.

I have 2 external hard drives that are hooked via usb but those 2 turned off. I also have a Wacom tablet that is hooked on as well.

As far as my system goes, when I hooked on my ssd to the Marvell ports, I set it to ACHI and installed windows. After I set everything up, I ran the Samsung magician benchmark and I noticed that my random write speed was a bit below advertised speeds, but everything's ran perfect. Here are my scores:

Seq read: 3273
Seq write: 2517
Random read: 118545
Random write: 52316

I made the mistake on repeating it a few times that causes a potential so I stopped.

Now, I begin researched about Marvell ports and I think that these ports don't support trim, even trim checked says it is working by using microsofts drivers. So I put the ssd to the Intel ports, but I put it in ports 4 and 5 because the sata cables are a bit to short, plus the cables are tidied up underneath the ssd to hdd adaptor. I'll fix those to port channel 0 when I get my RMA GPU back tomorrow. Now what's weird is that the cmos settings didn't show my ssd and hdd on any of the ide channels but it show it in hard disk priority so both are fine.

Now, the problem is that the bios it shows both my ssd and hdd are shown as SCSI in hard disk boot priority but it shows it as ata device according to device manager. Would that make an effect on TRIM pass by between os, ssd, and sata controller ie, Intel ich10r chipset? Is it possible to change SCSI to sata in bios?

Remove all the things you have plugged into your computer and then see what the bios indicate.

If you keep plugging in do dads I'm thinking you are confusing your bios.
But I'm not really sure because I really don't know.

Good point! Now before I plugged my drive so sata 2 ports, I can see them on cmos settings, which it was plugged in on the Marvell ports. At least it shows my drives when on the sata 2 ports when I turn on my PC, which they can list them before windows. Heck I don't know what the cmos settings really are, like it shows ide port channels.

As of right now, I put the drives in sata2_0 and sata2_1. Still shows as SCSI-0 and SCSI-1 on both drives in disk boot priority. D'oh! At least windows identify them as ata device when windows is installed while plugged in Marvell ports plus with its own ahci drivers.
