Without TRIM-capability, your performance might drop, sometimes considerably, below its factory performance levels. You need either Windows 7, Linux or FreeBSD to use TRIM. Older Windows releases and Mac OSX do not support it. m 0 l sub mesa a c 127 G Storage December 27, 2010 12:51:24 PM Oh i see you created about 8 threads.. i don't think the mods are going to like that!
