My Intel SSD was running 16% slower on the Passmark benchmark summary for my drive model. I finally figred out that I had to set the AHCI option in my BIOS. It now performs about 40% above the Passmark average. Here is the site, and the benchmark tool download is free to get started:http://www.harddrivebenchmark.net/
Intel has a toolbox download that they recommend you run once a week:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18455
Everyone on this forum says do not defrag. Windows 7 recognized that my drive was spinning at 0 rpms and did not try to automatically schedule any defragmentation.
All in all, I really like the super fast drive that I have, even knowing that it was pretty much a frivolous overspend in my build.
Oh, as for your question on TRIM, you have the 32 nm model, which is TRIM capable. Windows also handle that automatically, as long as you do nto have this drive in a RAID array, as per Sminlal on this forum: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/256712-32-trim-function
Hope this helps.
