I just got a Corsair Force GT SSD and it says it supports TRIM. I have Windows 7 (which is crucial for TRIM), I know what TRIM is.
I'm using my SSD as a boot drive and install games/applications on it... should I enable TRIM? (are there no negatives to enabling it)?

Also, how do I enable it?

You MUST set it to AHCI before installation. You can not do so after. Trim should be enabled automatically. This has been answered many many many times

So basically:

1. Set the SSD SATA controller to AHCI

2. Follow the steps in the command prompt (aka the link you gave me)

Yozer - Microsoft Windows 7 enables the TRIM command by default. When you installed Windows 7 the TRIM was already enabled. Unless you manually disabled TRIM there is nothing to do. You would be better off simply checking if TRIM is enabled. The link that nhasian provided explains how to check TRIM.

unskol - Although AHCI should be enabled in the System BIOS before installing Windows 7, AHCI can also be enabled after Windows 7 is installed. The link that nhasian provided explains how to do that too.
