Then click "Cleaner" and right down the bottom click "Wipe Free Space" It took about 12 minutes for 80GB on mine. It's best to let your PC idle for a few minutes after it's finished
I am in the process of trying to get Asus to answer the question about Trim and the Marvell controller. Here's our last exchange:

Hi krisenda,
Thanks for the reply. It was my understanding that the Trim signal is sent to the Marvell
controller, which supports Trim, but that the Marvell drivers do not pass along the
signal; therefore, the drive will never Trim. Do you know if the latest Marvell drivers also
support Trim... and that they do now indeed pass along the signal?

Hello Sir/Madam

Yes this board and the drivers support the TRIM feature on SSD's.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

I'm not sure whether to believe this or not... or whether to believe she knows what she's talking about because if Trim were now finally supported, I think we'd have heard about it... right? Do you have any new news?

Until I get here it from other sources, I'm sticking with the Intel controller.

I don't believe it simply because everywhere else I've read says it doesn't support TRIM. If it did, we'd all know by now.

I'm sure if it was true, the Crucial forums would know about it.

Yeah... that's what I was thinking too. The degree to which Asus has avoided giving a direct answer to a direct question was really peculiar. It took 5 email exchanges and 2 different reps just to get to this point... which instills zero confidence.

Well I haven't seen much performance benches posted on this thread lately!

Well just got a 128 GB Crucial M4 for my Asus P7P55D-E Pro system. Running it on the not so great Marvell 912x 6 Gb/s controller - which I don't believe supports TRIM - will see how that goes. MS AHCI driver. WEI score is 7.9. Here are the AS-SSD and CDM. Pretty happy with it so far. Have my OS, browser and Photoshop caches on it.
