trim in raid 0

I have purchased 2 x Samsung 840 pro 256gb ssd, which I would like in a RAID 0 with a fresh install of windows 7 64bit, the motherboard I have is a Asus Extreme IV, I have downloaded Asus latest SATA drivers for their R600 chipset for RAID configuration. I have read on websites that as a standalone ssd they support trim, but do they support trim in RAID 0.

Please could you unligthen me on it.

Regards,
Lee

    It depends is your raid Intel? If it is they did start trim support in raid 0 depending on the driver you have.

    but as a rule up until this point it was not supported.

  2. Yes it is the Intel x79 6gb/s
  3. When you say 6 - 7 series would that be the R600 chipset for my motherboard
  4. Under the downloads section for my motherboard

    http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_2011/RAMPAGE_IV_EXTREME/#download

    I basically have downloaded the top driver under the sata section for win 7 64 bit, should this driver be ok
  5. I think you can get the RST driver from the link in my post, because the intel website is most update one you can get. I try to get the one from your link but it is from ASUS and I don't know what version is it.
