Just set your bios sata mode to AHCI before doing your windows installation. The most recent firmware for the Samsung can be downloaded here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/solid-state...

You can update it before or after the Windows install, if you have an extra computer available, I would do it before.

After install optimize your drive, here is a good guide: http://thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/optimization-guides/...

I just built using the same drive. All I had to do is connect it and install WIN. Mobo defaulted to AHCI and SSD had most recent firmware.

Here is a link that I used to learn more about SSD optimization:
