You need to hang around. There are a lot of people you can help and learn in the meantime.

As with most discussions, they tend to stray off the course of the original question. Just so I'm on the right page, I understood the original "misdirection" to be a discussion on whether the 9128 Marvell CONTROLLER would support the Windows TRIM command. According to Marvell, it does. And this I take on faith. As I do with Intel's specifications on their controllers. Now the discussion has moved to whether the Marvell DRIVER will pass the Windows TRIM command. According to Marvell, the latest driver will pass the TRIM command. BUT, the same exclusion exists with Marvell and Intel CONTROLLERS that the TRIM command is NOT passed to drives that are in a RAID array. And I can see where this can pose a confusing problem as many BIOS configurations don't allow specifying AHCI without specifying RAID. Even on a single drive where the user wants to implement AHCI, the only option is to select RAID as RAID includes (extension of) the AHCI implementation.

The links to other discussions posted earlier and many posted around the forums have detailed the Marvell controller TRIM problems both old and new. As I read the current discussions, they all are referring to drives that are in RAID arrays and THAT is a known deficiency with the Marvell and Intel controllers. I don't disagree.

And now, in response to a PM, I offer this publicly to one of the posters:
What was taken to be "rudely chastise" was not my intention at all. For not explaining what I was thinking and using a poor selection of words, I sincerely apologize. I can now see where my comment was a bit tart but I did not mean it to be rude. I read the references given and it was my understanding by reading the entire thread(s) that the discussion was about RAID drives. It was this that prompted the comment since OUR discussion (in my mind) was about a single drive. If I mis-read the discussions or mis-understood this discussion, then I am at fault and apologize for my gross ineptness.

In response to "proof", no one but the drive and controller chip set manufacturer can provide proof that the TRIM command is or is not acted upon. A drive may or may not act on the command right away. It could be within seconds or it could be hours. It depends on the idle state of the drive. As I stated, I accept the specifications of maker and according to Marvell, the 9128 and newer controller chip sets do pass the TRIM command for NON_RAID drives. And so far, I have not seen proof that they don't. However; as with any learning experience, I am willing to revise my opinion if someone can prove otherwise. But forum discussions are NOT proof. There's too many variables interjected and as I, opinion based.
This is what I thought until I started searching this morning.
Everything I found today was TRIM is not enabled even though Windows will show it is available on non Raid set ups with newer Marvell drivers.

The Marvell website that I found does not even show any info on their motherboard controllers.
The only reference I found was from reviews by ezine types Tom's Hardware, AnandTech etc.

Links would be appreciated to this info at Marvell.

Thanks
Mike

Glad it is all sorted.

Glad I posted about the Marvell reinstalling and that you found it to delete.
I wasn't sure if it would or would not but I knew it was possible.

My wifes day off so I had to take her shopping and out for lunch.

Now I have to head off to the doctors office.

I´m sorry but another question poped into my mind just now so i had to ask before i forgott it.

If i was to buy a controllcard with the marvell 91xx chip and use my SSD on it, would i still be able to run the MSAHCI on it with TRIM activated?

I was thinking of this two cards:

Komplett.se - HighPoint Rocket 620 2P SATA III
ASUS U3S6 SATA6G USB3 CARD PCIE

To answer your question, I don't know. To the best of my knowledge they are both Marvell controllers. I just can't tell which ones. If it is the SE9120 then yes. If it is the same one you have then no, you will just be adding 2 more Marvell ports.

This card has the Marvell 9128 chip
Komplett.se - HighPoint Rocket 620 2P SATA III

And this card has the Marvell 9123 chip
ASUS U3S6 SATA6G USB3 CARD PCIE

So if i add the first card that has the same chip as i have 9128 then TRIM wont work? Why not? And why will it work with another Marvell chip other than i already have?
