Trim support for MSI 790FX GD70 - First time SSD Buyer

Hello again guys,

After a lot of thought and questions being asked to you guys, I've decided to buy an intel SSD (120gb). There is only one problem though; I have an older motherboard: an "MSI 790FX GD70"

After going through goole for about an hour, and not being able to find anything about this "AHCI" Bios setting in a non-raid configuration, I thought I'd ask you guys.

So what I know so far is that my motherboard is a SATA II and the SSD's I wanna get are SATA III. I know that they are backwards compatible and thats a great thing!

What I don't know is where to go to find this "AHCI" BIOS Setting To enable Trim in windows 7. I've looked through most of my menus and I haven't been able find it anywhere. Is there a place I over looked? or is it in need of a BIOS update? (Which I'd prefer not to do since everything is working right now.) I'm Reallty hoping that one of you can help me out here!

  1. Hey,

    Go to the Integrated Peripherals setting in the bios and then it is about halfway down the list.
